I knew I left the regular bulbs in the turn signals for a good reason!

Would anyone know where the "Flasher" unit for the turn signals might be on a C5 2011 bike?

I have a g5 but your flasher unit is probably in your left toolbox. With the box open and the trafficator blinking you might be able to hear or feel the relay click to know it's the right little black box.
I could not locate the unit, also I tried really ard to hear/ feel the relay clck, but nothing.

I know they are different but the G5 locates the turn signal relay in the left hand triangular side box.  There are three little black plastic boxes in there and the signal relay is the only one with three wires connected to it.  The terminals are two in line and one at 90 degrees to the other two.
This unit is a solid state device that does not make a clicking sound when it is in operation.

Again, knowing it doesn't apply to the C5, in the left hand hot dog container are three larger plastic relays.  I mention this because the smaller size of the turn signal unit is one of the things to look for.  That and the three wire connection.

Thank you Arizoni, I just found it in the Trangular box which also holds the fuses and electronics, now I can order the flasher. I still have to install the diode unit I got.

It's not difficult.

the single kit you ordered is all you need.  The webpage shows 2 diodes already connected together at their cathodes.
Hi Gremlin, I tried your suggestion, by wiring it at the Nacelle and triple checked my work. The problem I am facing is that when I wire it up per instructions, only the left side works but blinks very rapidly ( i am sure adding an LED flasher shoud resolve the rapid flashing ). BUT the right side does not work at all. I'm wondering if there are any other connections or wiring that we might be missing?  ???

Hmmm.....   the black wire  (ground)  should also have the black with green stripe from the indicator lamp (speedo side).  The other side of the black with green stripe from the connector should be connected to the diode.

Since the wires are cut, I am going to  re- try it again, this time I will take some pics, I am sure we are missing something, it could very well be me. Either way I don't give up that easy so I will try again and post progress. Thanks

Thanks Gremlin, both your drawings are EXACTLY   :)  as I see them in the nacell area, and I wired it the same way.  ???, I just may have made a mistake  :-\ and I will try and do this again today or if busy do it this weekend, I hope this resolves the issue.
Cheers. Mark

 Ok Gremlin, I did the wiring again and this time it worked [suspicious][/suspicious], I obviously did it wrong  :-[ the previous attempts ???.
Now the STOCK lights work fine. When I installed the LED,s nothing happened, Nothing turned on whatsoever, nothing blinked or nothing was light up or nothing was dim-solid either, Zero activity, the Only thing on was the indicator light which was glowing a Solid green.
Well at least the Stock lights worked. NOW, I am waiting for the LED flasher unit to arrive, I am hoping and assuming that when this is installed all should be well and hopefully this Led install situation will have been resolved.  ;)
Cheers

Good Luck, let us know how things turn out for you.

I'd recommend checking the health of your new LED lamps since your stock lamps work normally.  I would think they should light-up in unison with the indicator.
