Just wanted to say that I did this mod after adding led turn signals.
I added the four turn signals (two forward, two aft) and got the four-way hazard light blink. Nice to have since the Vulcan does not have flashers. But I could not leave her that way. So I did the mod as described (thanks for the pics) and it worked like a charm.
While I was in there, I left the original t/s on the front but changed the orange lens to a clear one and added a led bulb. I also removed the t/s wire from it (I used that on the led t/s) making it a light bar sort of. With the led t/s above them. Check pic.
Thanks for the mod post, I'm sure it has helped a lot of riders.

Thanks for the guide, followed it and all went great!
Now waiting for the LED flasher to arrive to install it along with the rear bulbs which I have converted to running+turn.
I intend to keep the front bulbs not LED as they are not on all the time so do not draw current when not used.

Will this work on 01 1500 classic? It is equipped with running and turn. Also did you replace the thermal flasher with electric? Only problem I see that I will have is no matter how hard I try my soderinng sucks. Lol

No it will not if anyone was curious as well. Lol completely different wiring just two wires coming from indicator light green and yellow. I just cut them and also swapped running and signal wires as well. Everything works great also I guess due to the lack of electronic flasher relay the back turn signals are now running lights as well.

In case anyone irreparably screws up the wiring you can buy a new "Lamp assembly" board which comes with the multi-wire ribbon cable that you have to cut for this mod. It's part # 23016-1186 and spans many years of the 900, but you should still check to ensure proper part. It's roughly $65. It's easy to accidentally pull a wire from its contact with not much force. Better to release the contact from the header via 2Lucky's post in Post 10.
