The 1981 GL1100 had the turn signal "clicker/Beeper" controlled by the speedometer.. when below 35 MPH the clicker would sound, when above 35MPH it would beep.

Check the Electrical diagrams for your bike and they will give you some clues as to where to look for and trace out the circuits for this indicator...

I also know that if you replace your front fairing turn/parking bulbs with LEDs there is insufficient ground current to activate this beeper/clicker as it needs the ground current from the turn signal bulbs to activate and the LEDs don't draw enough current.

Just look on the manuals page here on GW docs and you will see the electrical diagrams for the GL1100's.
