Hey Kev,

The 2004 and up ones have it from the factory (or was that 2005?), I'm not sure if the earlier ones can be upgraded with the later model gear or not.

Take care,

When I picked up my K6 DL the salesman explained a few things on the bike. He pointed to the 4-way flasher's switch and said: "that's the switch you will never have to use".
So far he is right.

It is a nice feature to have in case you have to pull over to the side of a busy road for one reason or another.

Perhaps I should have been a little more specific:
I would like to add 4 way flashers to a 2003 DL1000; has anyone found a source for doing this?

I didn't as I have it already done by Mr. Suzuki at the factory. :wink:
But as far as I know it differs from the non-equipped DLs in the switch and the flasher unit as well. I think it could be a nice do-it-yourself mod. I would start with getting the wiring diagrams of both models. If you want to make a clean job you need to replace the complete unit from the left handlebar includig wiring harness. Maybe worth a look on ebay or other used part shop otherwise it can be quite expensive. But I am sure it can be done with a suitable switch on a self-made panel and a flasher unit. Perhaps needs a bit soldering, drilling, metering etc. Fun if you like it!

Klong,,,
i have read about it before. i think europe had them from the beginning of the bike. if you look closely to the left control youll see a spot where youd likly want to have the switch (( kinda like a small-ish blk cover/tab )) ,,well thats where they have it in europe,,i have no idea how/where they did it on the newer bikes.

also,if you can find pictures on line of a 2003 from europe,,you might get lucky and see the switch yourself.

from what i remember,,theres a switch you can get, (( up-grade parts to copy the europe version))and just put it in the controller you have now,,course youll need wires as well. when i read about it,,the guy was gonna do just what your talking about.
im nearly positive i have seen them in pics ...........

sorry i cant remember more. ill look in my "favorites" to see if i saved it for future reference... like NOW is the future i save crap for. heh heh heh

good luck,
roy

that page from Kriss.... they have some decent stuff
