2018 DL1000 turn signal relay location

Does anyone know where the turn signal relay is located on a 2018 DL1000?

I looked underneath the seat where the service manual I have says it is located, but it's not there, and the reason I ask is I'm going to be installing one of their Custom LED flasher relays when I install their Blinker Genies.

To get to the turn signal relay you have to remove the battery, lift the fuse box and then unscrew the plastic below the battery. It's held by 3 vertical screws then 2 more horizontal screws on each side, screwed into the subframe. Then, there are still 2 clips accessed from the wheel arch.
That is where it is on the 2017 DL1000, and I guess your bike will be the same.

I just order two pairs of Blinker Genies, and next, I'm going to order an electronic flasher relay and (4) 7057 amber LED bulbs.

Does anyone have any recommendations on what brand of LED bulbs to buy that are bright and not overly expensive?

I had already purchased 4 amber turn signal lenses which I'm also going to install back on the turn signals. So has anyone used the stock incandescent bulbs for the running lights without having any issues with them putting out to much heat and melting the housing or lenses, for if it's not an issue I was thinking of first trying lining the turn signal housings with some really shiny silver insulation tape I have and see how bright the incandescent bulbs are.

Every time I look at LED headlight bulbs the selection is new and the newer ones always seem to be improved.
Rather than LED indicator bulbs I bought these. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Pair...862333482.html

They are 3 wire to hook up to your position lights.

Thanks, but they're not my style.

I've ordered stuff before from aliexpress, so I ordered 6 of these bulbs, which I found the same brand on eBay and Amazon for a lot more money, and they got good reviews, and I figured since their so cheap I ordered an extra pair to have for spares.

Installing the blinker buddies, electronic flasher relay, LED bulbs and amber lenses will be one of my winter projects.

I also ordered the electronic flasher relay from aliexpress which looks just like the one from SuperbrightLEDS which they sell for $8.95 plus shipping.
