Self-Cancelling Signal Flasher?

Does anyone know where I might locate a self-concelling turn-signal flasher for a 919? Occasionally, I forget to turn mine off and it ticks me off when I do. I can't believe they haven't been standard equipment on everything for years.

Thanks

that happens to all of us from time to time. i feel minorly ticked off when i do it, too.


which leads to the next question...what bikes out there have self-cancelling turns? could you take the left control pod off of one and transplant it onto your 9er?

Well, fire the engines! Spur this iron space-pony on!

only ones i know that have self canceling turn signals are..... harleys. Only cus if they didnt the rider is too dumb to figure out how to turn em off... hell they have the actual buttons on the respective side instead of on one switch LOL.

I've never heard of such a thing and can't imagine how it would work?


If a blinker really pisses you off you may wanna consider talking to your doctor about anger managment.

CBRider, are you saying you forget to put your arm back in?
MY signals cancel any time i use the clutch, as i have no electrically-lit turn signals.

My 85 Maxim X had self canceling turn signals. Many jap bikes do. they based the cancellation on time. Harley i think cancels based on speed.

Oh and thanks on the tip rmb.

I just stopped signaling altogether. "Fuck 'em" I say. All I was doing is telling where to go to block me or hit me anyway. I think a surprise attack works much better now.

Many motorcycles came with self cancelling turn signals in the '80s, but since then you'd have to buy a high end touring bike or a more recent Hardly Ableson to get them. My '82 Honda Sabre VF750 had it, but it took a solenoid in the left switch housing that mechanically shut off the switch to maintain driving lights when it did shut down. There were a variety of inputs to the control module, including speed, clutch, neutral, side stand (for some strange reason), steering angle, and a couple others. It always worked very well.

The '80s Yamaha Seca line had them as well, and the entire control was packed into the flasher unit -- simple because they did not have integrated driving lights. It also had a variety of inputs that varied shutoff time.

The Kisan unit is a time only type with settable delays -- in other words the signals will shut off while waiting for a protected left turn light or similar delay, and you could suddenly find yourself without turn signals when you're actually making the turn. Not good. Additionally, the unit may turn off the signals, but it doesn't turn the driving light back on -- you have to hand cancel them yourself to do this, or get the necessary harness to do the driving light function. It seems to me that for $110 it should do everything but wash your socks while turning!

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.
