that was probably an emissions, noise and cost issue - I have fitted the Wings shorty and it weighs only 2.4kg as opposed to the OEM 6.3kg - The Wings however is quite expensive, but well worth it

AFAIK the hazards can only be operated when ignition is ON or within 60sec of switching the ignition OFF.
Try activating your hazards after the bike has been parked for longer than 1 minute?
