The diagram that I drew up is for using a single filament bulb. It works by keeping the light turned on all the time. When you turn the signal light on for the respective light, it then turns the light off and then on again. This way requires using an individual relay for each light you want to use this approach on.

right. Thats exactly what id like to do. I originally orderd the conversion kit from the yamaha shop but when i got it, it only had the brake flasher conv. kit in it. Then i saw this and figured it didnt sound difficult to do. thanks everybody for your tips/advice. I appreciate it.

As posted earlier, the 10A is simply a rating and will not affect the flasher speed. The speed of the flasher is based on current draw of the entire circuit (wire plus lamp current draw). The relay is simply allowing a means to switch current paths but does not add significant current draw. Overkill...yes, will it work yes, will it affect the speed of the flasher, no. Hope this helps..Oh..and fyi, I am a sparky. I've been an EE since '77.
