Top picture looks like it could be a turn signal flasher.

Is it located in the left side false tank?

I can't read the writing on the EI as the picture isn't that great.

I have a set of instructions for the Newtronic Electronic Ignition, but the instructions are available online: Google Newtronic Ignition, find product CKT-H03 and the instructions are available to download at the bottom of the product listing. The item you are holding looks like the 7v regulator for the Fuel/Temp gauges, judging by the wire colours.

Many thanks for the quick support.
Yip look like the 7V regulator the wire path looks different but wires correct.
Found the link code number was helpful.

I don't know if this is helpful or not, but I had that very same Newtronic ignition fitted to my '75 GL1000 and I ended up removing it because it kept failing when the engine was hot, in so far as two cylinders (1 coil) would stop firing. It was a new unit but the company couldn't replicate the fault, so I pulled it out and went back to points and condenser!
