I've done this mod to all my bikes, and doing it to the UK zx-9r is easier than you may think.
Hazard button only works with ignition on, good because no one can walk by select them and you come back to a flat battery.
The PASS switch just puts the main beam on, as well as dipped lights if they are already on, the PASS switch is sprung loaded to off.
Our American friends use the start button, which deselects the headlights completely while its pressed. UK F2 guy may want to try this.

Tools needed are a Philips driver, for undoing the switch halfs.
A small instrument driver, for releasing a plug pin.
About 30 inches of solid copper earth core wire from house hold electrical cable, for feeding up inside the loom.
Pair of pliers, to fold back the ends of the copper wire.
About 3 inches of electrical tape, for the wire and pins to help feed back down the loom.
A small cable ty-rap, to replace the one you remove.

Time to do the mod, not including removing it from the bike, about 30 minutes.

Sourcing a Kawasaki Left hand switch gear with a Hazard button will be your hardest task, as you have to ensure that it has the recess for the choke mounting.
There are some uk bike that may have them, but I don't know which ones, though I have one off a zxr 400 but the wire colours and plugs are different, this will make it a harder job.
Easiest place to get one is from the States as there fitted to most kawasakis and the plugs are the same, listed below.

EDIT. Just to add a Yamaha XJ600 S Diversion uses the same switch, but the plugs and wire colours will be different, and also you will have to change the clutch switch plug as it only has 2 wire and not the 3 we need.

I'm only mentioning this as there easier to pick on uk ebay.

As all zx9's are all slightly different, and I get fed up having to ask which model & number, as year may not be accurate.

A couple of more pictures for Duncan, and Info.
Duncan sent me 2 so I could make them into one good one.
The Hazard one had a broken headlight switch, this I thought would be no problem to swap over, but after a lot of swearing I realised that the internals of the switch were different and so had to swap the whole thing out.

Thanks for doing this for me Yorkie your a real forum Diamond mate :D

This is a quality mod in my book, it adds a whole new function to my bike, the usual brilliant "how to" guide aswell Ian.

Will make a donation to the forum instead of paying you, as you suggested mate, with pleasure.

=D> =D> =D>

I'm intending going down the Divvie switchgear route. It looks easier to put the ZX loom into the XJ fittings and splice the hazard lines in. I'll need to take the switchgear out so need confirmation that the indicator button levers off with screwdriver pressure either side.

Being the confident person I am I'll be experimenting with two ebay (both UK) purchases NOT the switchgear on my bike. It was a pain to find hazard switchgear that wasn't faded and tatty- either UK and US

No disrespect meant, but why are people doing this?

Ive never had a hazard button on any of my bikes and can honestly say I don't think I have ever needed one.

Is there a new MOT law coming in or is it just personal preference?

As I said please don't take this as s shitty question im just interested

Cheers

Because we can :D , and its always handy to have for signaling to your mates behind you of something, like turn your indicator off, turn your lights on, or gatso, or danger, or thanks.

If I read it right, that's what he's doing - taking the back of the UK unit with the pass switch out of the UK loom and adding it to the US unit/loom with the hazard switch.
