    Flashers

    I have a 2007 G650 XCountry. I am a Moto referee for USA Cycling and I need flashers which the bike doesn't have. I am considering mounting an accessory toggle switch on the handlebars and running a jumper to the wire going to the turn signal lamps that, when switched, would cause all 4 lamps to flash when I turned on a left turn signal, for example. Anybody have any helpful hints on this subject?

    Thanks,

    Jerry Shere

    does that bike have the can-bus single wire technology like the GS? if so you may be able to make your lights flash like the GS does in parade mode.

    As far as I know, it does not. My local dealer has suggested that I create a jumper between left and right hot wires from the switch. That way when a ground is created, all 4 lights will flash. I'll try it and report back.

    If they have a module to fit your bike I think you'll be good to go.

    Flasher

    Well, after a lot of advice including my local dealer. I have a solution to the flasher issue. My dealer suggested a switch that would create a jump from the blu/red to the blu/blk at the switch. Interestingly that simply defaulted to the LH turn signal no matter where the switch was set L or R. However, if I jump those same two wires out at either the front or rear lamps, I get all four flashing at the same time at the same frequency. I plan to use a simple two pole switch that will make or break the jump. Nothing KisanTech.com had would work. They were very responsive and helpful though.
    Cheers,

    The lack of a hazard type flasher is interesting. My wife's '05 F650GS has a separate switch between the fork mounts which includes a switch for hazards and the ABS. It's almost like they added it as an afterthought.

    flashers

    I used my flashers this weekend by jumping the hot wires for the rear lamps under the seat while refereeing a bicycle race. It worked perfectly. Now I'm going to install a handelbar mounted "doo-dad" switch which will give me easy access. Sort of like a normal bike. I'll do all of this when I install my new RG Tail Tidy. I'll try to post some pics when I'm done.
