Another interesting wiring question:

So i got a 2 prong led flasher with a ground. I plugged the 2 wire in and the ground to the green wiring cable. The flasher work and turn on/off but the flasher relay clicks constantly like the flashers are on?

Any idea of what can be going on here? seems really strange

Sounds like you have constant power to the relay.

Are you asking how to fit a 2 pin flasher relay to hondas OEM 3 pin setup?......try this....
Connect the cable named 49 or B from the OEM turn signal relay socket with the flashers live pin/cable. Connect the cable named 49a or L
from the OEM turn signal relay socket with the flashers earth pin/cable. The remaining third socked cable (if existing) will be not used and
insulated after cutting off the socked.

I could have sworn I had read that it was a 2 pin system and there was a 3rd cable that was just a ground. Ill have to look into what you said and see if i can make it work. otherwise ill get a 3 pin flasher.

I moved the battery. Can anyone spot it? Haha
