good question to ask as am about to do the same thing, i know you can buy a hazzard swicth and it comes with a relay but am sure you can just cross the wires over, depending on what relay you`ve got, my loom is off a gpz900 and i`ve looked on the relay and says it can be used for hazzards even thou the bike never came with a hazzard switch.

You can use any double pole switch, or a single pole switch and a double pole relay, or if you want to go push button, you can use a changeover headlamp relay a momentary on switch and a double pole relay.

The reason you need a double pole switch, is that with a sinigle pole one, both directions are permenantly connected to the same contact, meaning when you use the direction indicators both sides would flash.

You couldw also use heavy duty diodes if your useing led lights the load would be low enough.

this is ONE way to do it. The diodes stop the indicators flashing all the lights every time you use the indicator switch.
