XT500 turn signals

Compounding the problem is that this is a 6 volt system.
Does anybody have a suggestion as to small signal lamps suitable for use a 6 volt bike?

I have one more bug to shake out. After that, I can provide a schematic. Plan to be done on or before Saturday. I might not see a reply, so if interested, shot an e-mail to iamknudesn (a) gmail.com or jon (a) purdue.edu. Be sure to use an intelligent subj line, or I'll dismiss it as spam. Not to be insulting, and you did use an intelligent subject here.
If others are interested, I can post all the info here. I had parts and it was the easiest cheap way to get things going once and for all and have a reliable system. Estimate $5 for flasher parts, plus LEDs (cheap on e-bay direct from Tiawan), plus about $500 labor LOL. Capacitors are probably fairly expensive, but I'll bet less than a battery and should out last me. The only single drawback I see is you lose the neut light key on engine off, so you get in habit of going to neut before shutting her down, or do the rock and click thing.
Ride happy, brothers.
