turn signals
So I'm riding down the road today everything running great. Approach my next turn and my signals are not working. Well they did 30 seconds ago.
Got home started to look at things. They started to work intermittantly. I could hear the flasher click but cannot find it. Now they are
not working at all. The 4 ways are working.
I have the Clymer book but it doesn't show where the flasher is or I'm just not seeing it.

86 Interstate.

The two flashers are located under the false tank, one between the coils/radiator fill cap/frame of the bike and the right side fairing inner wall way down low. This one is the four ways and can be switched for the other turn signal flasher unit which is slightly higher and tucked in nearer the coils to the left of the first flasher.

Most common quote from a cager after killing a motorcyclist.

"I never saw him" instead of "I never looked for him".

On my '86 interstate, the 4 way flasher is on the left side up top just below the ignition module. The turn signal flasher is mounted to the bracket down by the coils on the right side. It is easier to get to it if you take the false tank off.

just my .02
The light at the end of the tunnel is usually the headlamp of the oncoming train.

Thanks for the help guys. I found both of the flashers and swapped them out. they both appear to be working fine.
The flashers are working. However I believe the trouble may be in the auto cancel. Something for me to do on the weekend anyway.
