Do you have the repair manual? I don't have mine with me, won't be near it for another 7 hrs. It's been a while but I thought the 82 gl1100 came with a 2 wire flasher??? Are you saying yours has a 3 wire flasher that has been added on?
Take a picture of it.

GL1100 uses a standard two (or three) terminal automotive flasher rated for two bulbs. Wiring harness provides for a third ground connection to the flasher unit, three terminal flashers use the ground. The OEM flasher is only two terminal, but the three terminal ones can be used.
