Turn Signal Relay Info?

Hi folks - I'm a complete newbie to the VN750 forums and I have a question
for you: On a 1986 Vulcan 750 can anyone tell me what the correct
part number is for the turn signal relay?

I'm looking for the numbers on the relay itself, not Kawasaki's part number
or a number from a retailer such as Ron Ayers.

I'm working on a friend's bike; I believe the relay is bad and I want to
verify that the correct relay is in the bike.

Thanks in advance for any help provided!

The correct part numner IS the Kawasaki part number. There really isn't any other way to get the part. Try ohming it out to see if the relay coil hasn't failed. The only other thing would be to apply the 12 volts from an outside source and see if it works then. If not, replace.

The relay that's in the bike now is made by Nippondenso and reads as follows:

FA249ED 12.8v 85c/m
066500-0213 TURN SIGNAL
21(23)W x 2 + 3.4W
21(23)W MAX. 4 BULBS
(A) 79002 DOT

Can anyone out there verify this is the correct part?

The circuit on the bike checks out fine from the relay out to the lights.
I know this because applying 12v to that circuit allows the turn signals,
(and hazards) to operate correctly with the switch. So I know the circuit
is fine from the relay out to the lights. I don't know if the circuit is good
going into the relay, or if the relay itself is bad, or just not correct for the
bike. I suppose these are cheap enough to just go buy a replacement, but
this is not my bike and I'd like to be certain before spending someone elses money....

Thanks Again!

Most of the relays have standard contact numbers. If all else works check for battery and ground inputs. when I hard wired my timer flasher in I lost the idiot lights after the switch was released. That gives me the idea that you should be looking for 12v from the turn signal switch. Correct assumption forum?

Also check you bulbs! sometimes if there is a odd ball bulb in there even though it lights up it still can cause the system to not act right!
