Does anyone know if the self cancelling indicator feature found on some Kawasakis can be fitted to the 919, and how does it work. I feel like such a bunny each time I discover my indicator is still on!
The one on my Mean Streak worked great!
I don't know why (well, I do, it's money, weight, etc.) factory bikes don't ALL have self cancelling signals. But with electronics today it can't be that big a deal. I rode a Yamaha in '83 that had a nice setup. The signal would auto-cancel based on distance travelled with the signal on. The one posted above cancels based on time it appears, which isn't that good when you can easily set for a long time at stoplights or trying to get onto a main road here.
I wish it was something they would put on all bikes.

The self cancelling blinkers on my dads Harley are pure trash. They are either on way too long or turn off right away--both dangerous situations on a bike. If the rest work like these then I dont want them
My 1983 KZ440 LTD had self-cancelling signals that worked perfectly (until I dropped the bike). I'm not certain how they were configured, but I'm pretty sure they were based on distance travelled. I wouldn't mind having a set like that for the 919, but it doesn't kill me to check the dummy lights once in a while.
