There is a kit available from the dealer which upgrades it to a later version, one that has a voltage sensing circuit to keep the relay from engaging when the battery voltage is too low, and fusing the contacts together. That kit has installation instructions in it.
If you do not want to do the kit, and use a stock early relay, it is in the electrical box under the fuel tank. You have to remove the tank first, then the cover on the box.
If you do not have a service manual, you should look at getting one, either the BMW one or the Haynes (Chilton?), which is cheaper.

No bike now, but maybe in the future.
