I am working on a project for a 1100 vstar. The bike doesnt have a 4 way flasher.
I am trying to decide if I can use the Latched On/Off Output Using a Single Momentary Pulse circuit they have on this site. Or if i should use a 555 timer circuit.
I do not want to put another switch on the handlebars.
The trigger I was thinking would be the horn when the turn signals are on. Or a left/off/left/off sequence.
I tried looking on the forum for similar project, but i didnt see anything that looked exactly right.
Appreciate any help! Thank you

Here is a copy of my turn signal switch.

And this is the 555 timer circuit I was debating on trying.

Thanks again in advance.

Currently working on this still.

I am going to use a PICAXE to accomplish the hazard flash.
Reason its taking so long is I am going to add a bunch of other features: LCD Display for Tach/volt meter, leds and control, Ipod control.
But the Hazard circuit will be quite simple.
I can post the code and circuit if needed when all is done.
Remind me if I forget ;)
