Question Adding Hazard Lights to 2002 Vee

I have searched hazard lights but have not found anything on updating a 2002 to have hazard lights like the later models. There appears to be a blanked spot on the light switch box on the handlebar for it, and I am okay with putting a newer handlebar control on the bike.....but wondering how much of a modification this is to the electrical side.

I have hyperlights front and back, but still like the idea of having standard four way flashers for other uses.

Is this possible on an '02 and how challenging?

The blanker replaces a headlight on/off switch for countries where that is allowed. The later switch box looks like direct swap to me. The connectors have the same wires and the added hazard and flash to pass switches have all their wiring inside the switch housing. The hazard flasher switch connects the black, light green, and light blue to each other.

Awesome, thanks for the detailed response. Definitely worth a try. You don't think it will need any changes to the flasher units or anything else downstream of the switch. Just shorting those three wires is what makes all four flash? I guess I could try that out on the existing switch to verify. Worth a peek inside what I have not to familiarize myself.

Thanks!

The ignition needs to be on or possibly in park. The three wires are for the left turn signals, right turn signals, and flasher. I didn't look to make sure nothing else is required, but it's easy to check.
