Don't know on the flasher but having the windshield off doesn't get you close to it.

It is a pain but you can unbolt the dash to get to the flasher. As far as LED flashers I believe some of the major suppliers have them.
If you know what to do you can mod the OEM flasher to work with LEDs. If you switch to an LED compatible flasher it should work with the OEM
bulbs but you lose the bulb out sensor.

I assume you are asking about the mod. You can cut the run on the flasher circuit board that goes from the shunt
the big heavy wire, to the IC. This is the bulb out sense line that causes the lights to hyper flash when a bulb is out.
Have done this mod on three OEM flashers and works great with LEDs or bulbs.
