I dont know why you couldnt replace it with a automotive one with the same pin location.
It's not what you buy, it's what you build.

Just goto NAPA or CT and pick up an electronic flasher (2 pin) universal type automotive flasher relay. The old style bimetal ones will work but if you plan on switching to LED bulbs you will need the electronic version. Usually clear plastic ,about the size of a film container and you can see a copper coil and a few other electronic components in them. It what I use on my 82 Aspy.
Ride safe, Todd
