I'm not sure of any factory optioned system that has emergency flashers for a Vulcan. However, if you're good with wiring work, and don't mind getting a little creative, I have a work around that I'm gathering parts for to swap onto my own 500...
Several HD models use a separate turn signal switch for each side. A basic on/off switch on each side of the handlebar controls. My 500 has 1" bars, same as most of these HD models, and I'm pretty sure your 800 will too. My thought is to change the electronic portions of my controls for these HD components. It'll take some getting used to at first, right turn signal on the right side control, but then if you need emergency flashers, you simply turn both sides on at once.
My idea is still in the drawing board stages to be honest. I'm on a super tight budget, so parts gathering is slow... Mainly hoping someone comes into the shop looking to chrome out their controls and I can keep their factory black pieces and knock a little off the labor...
The wiring wouldn't be too terribly hard to work up, if you have a good mindset for it. You would have to add/change a couple wires from the current configuration.
I'll try to work up a sketch to demonstrate how the wiring is and would need to be done.
