Yes, there is a way to flash the high beams! I just made my own flasher on the end of the turn signal stalk. Instead of the original black plastic ball screwed onto the threaded end of the 1/4" stalk, I use a small round Momentary-On push switch that fits into a length of 1/2" aluminum tube. This tube is centered on the original 1/4" stalk with some vinyl tubing that is slit lengthwise for the switch's wire to pass through, and I covered the outside with some black heatshrink so it looks original. The switch merely actuates the two high beam relays (there's one for each side because I have 330W of high beam lamps), so it carries only an amp at most. I can now easily flash my high beams without even moving my fingers off the steering wheel, and even in daytime it definitely gets people's attention when I flash them!
