Summer, it is just our Yamaha. Every other manufacture uses mirrors with the same thread on both sides and 2 or 3 pin flasher units.
Nick, that is incorrect. That is a myth. Electricity is like water with how it flows. Imagine series of pvc pipes with water running through it. If you make a T intersection and one direction is a 1" pipe and the other is a 1/2" pipe water will still flow in each pipe, it will just flow at different rates.
If electricity only followed the path of least resistance then most of our electronics would not work. How could you have your TV and your lamp and your home theater system all on and working at the same time if electricity only followed the path of least resistance? One of those appliances will be less resistant then the others.
If I recall correctly if resistance is in series you total the resistance, if resistance is in parallel you half divide the resistance. For example, two 4 ohm speakers in series equals 8 ohm over all resistance, but in parallel 2 ohm over all.
