Default HAZARD LIGHTS

Does anyone know of a system for converting flickers/flashers/blinkers to hazard lights, so all flash together ?

However, it seems to me this will drain your bike's battery in short order.

Here is an alternative that you may be able to stuff under the seat or strap under the battery box.

Hope this helps!

Many thanks ArTravLr - just what I needed ! While we live in a pretty hot climate, sub-tropical, we often on early morning rides have mist to contend with, and really limited visibility. I have used a yellow strobe light attached to the back of my helmet, but it's not really the answer- 'specially when you forget to turn it off and get pulled over by "da Fuzz" - embarassing ! I'll have a go at this - many thanks again

Shadow1,
How about removing the seat and putting a switch across the orange and blue wires of the ture signals.
Or running separate system of flasher lights. If it were me I would go to the auto stroe and buy some LEDs, a switch and a flashing unit and run seprate wires off the battery.

I wasn't able to get the first link from ArTravLr untilnow.I like the setup with the diodes. That looks like it will work if you just want 4-ways. I think LED’s are much brighter and safer for you application. You may be able to use that system and purchase LED’s separately. The links that I came up with are pricey.

Thanks TBT, I'll weigh up the options and let you know how it turned out. At this stage, I don't have ANY power, as the stator's in for a rewind, and I'll check out the charging rate before I add anything else to the system.....I did the camchain swop OK last night, so nearly back on the road.....

I had my eye on this wireless LED system for a while. Seems that the light strips can be set to either brake or hazard mode.
The light strips run off watch type batteries, so I guess no drain on the 12 volt. I like it because it appears the LED light
strips can easily be placed most anywhere, say, sides of the fork legs or the sides of the grab rail for some side hazard
lighting. Up front, I'm thinking horizontally near the base of the windscreen may be a good spot. And at the rear, on the
back of my passenger back rest, or the fender. I received a return email from whitehorse gear today and they confirmed
that each light strip can be set individually to brake or hazard mode for whatever combination of lighting is desired. I'm pobably
going to try the base kit plus one extra light strip for now and see how well it works.

Here's a write-up about this system made by another company:

Also some cheaper and similar versions available on Ebay:

Hope this helps.

I have seen these on a bike just like mine. They cool like the cats meow.

Here is another link.

EDIT: I installed non-spinning ones after hearing about R/R problems and the electrical loads the system can handle. I now havea pair ofbright round running/break lights instead of the whole lens. I like the new look. It looks more modern.

I happened across this link and remembered that your bird had these bags. Maybe you could purchase the mounting kit for the 1kf and swap out the bags
and use this light kit with a separate flashing unit or modify the birds wiring and use it there. Anyway, another log to place on the fire.
