Winter sucks for riding, but damned if the bike doesn't come out of the season with more farkles! ;)
Well, as expected, the stock flasher operates in a "fast flash" mode as if a bulb or filament were out. You could certainly run a bike like this if the flash-flash-flash-flash didn't drive you nuts - but I imagine it would be hell on the flasher relay.

Best bet is an electronic one (like the Kisan or those offered at I've also read (not tested) that a relay marked as "Heavy Duty" will also be immune from the fast-flash symptom.

If the embedding didn't work:
Current: 93 R100GS, 03 XR650R
Prior: 73 CB350, 77 R100/7, 83 R100RT, 04 XR650L
I love every motorcycle I've owned and even some that I haven't.
