Does anyone know how to make all the turn signals flash together?

I rode in a bad fog the other day. For about 20 miles is was me and the 30ft of pavement around me. I was scared of going to fast and hitting someone who was stopped or had just pulled out. And I was scared that someone would run me over from behind if I went to slow. Got to thinking that the backside could be lit up better in situations like this if I could turn all my signals to flash continuously. Of course, the bike doesn't do that with the standard setup. Thus my question. Hopefully someone has thought of a way to do this. I know the H-Ds can do it. But I think they have a switch for each signal. Thanks in advance.

You know, I should have know Gadget would have something on this. I am going to look at the SM3 too. Thanks for the advise.

The Kisan SM3 signal minder gives you the option for flashers or parade mode (back and forth).

Just installed it on my LT. Works pretty good. You have to install some springs in the turn signal switch (provided with kit) to enable the 4-way function. I didn't use them and still got the 4-way by manipulating the turn signal switch while pushing in[cancelling] between the instructed 4 flicks to the right. Sounds complicated but just takes some fancy thumb action. If I can ever figure out the spring thing it would be simpler.

Iv'e just installed the Kisan signal minder. I used the foam plugs to mod the hanldebar switch. I ended up cutting one of the plugs into about 3 equal pieces and using 1 piece on each side of the back side of the switch. Like they show on page 29 of the book that came with the SM3 flasher.

I got my SM 3 off ebay. It came with 2 sets of springs neither of which were foam. Kisan website sells replacement metal springs but not the foam. I'm scrounging though the house seeing if I can fashion something that will work.

If you can find some foam ear plugs you can use them, they are about the same things as the plugs that came with the sm3

I'd check that suggestion. I've gotten a couple of old ear plugs that crumbled when I went to put them in. That foam doesn't stay good forever.
