    Help with Installing signal flasher unit please.

    Hi Guys,
    I am installing turn signals on my 72 CB350 and have ran into a problem. The signals themselves are all installed and wired however the old flasher unit was removed by the previous owner. I purchased a new flasher and removed the tank to install it. From schematics it looks like there should be two black wires that connect into the unit but instead all I see is one Black, one Grey, and one green. I do not know what wires are for what out of these three however there is no horn or electric start so im guessing two of those wires may be for those. Does anyone have any ideas where the other black wire may be on the bike? Im at a total loss here so any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks
    Jim

    A good manual with a wiring diagram is a very helpful tool.

    Yes I have the wiring diagrams but according to them there should be two black wires that connect to the unit. I have one black wire, one green, and one grey. Anyone know if im looking at this schematic wrong or are my whys not the norm?

    hmmm really? Maybe I have the wrong schematic then because thats exactly the wires I have. So I was told to use a two wire flasher unit, is that wrong?

    I looked at three different wiring diagrams for the cb350 from this site:

    http://oldmanhonda.com/MC/WiringDiagrams/MCwiring.php

    They all show the "winker relay" as having two wires. One gray and one black. Use a meter to verify these are the wires you need. Due to the fact that the horn and other random items have been pulled out, you might want to trace the wires to verify where they are coming from.
