automatic canceling turn signals

Recommended Posts

Hi
 
I have recently swapped to Yamaha and I really enjoy it. there is only one thing that bothers me. We are in the year 2017 and we still don't have self-cancelling turn signals on motorcycles. I found myself several times driving around with flashing blinkers.
 
Do you have any suggestions?
 
Regards
Steve

I wish someone would offer a blank plate so snap into place of the turn signal mount so i can just not have any turn signals on the bike. I prefer to use hand signals.

I know in Washington state that would be illegal.  If the bike came with turn signals by law they must be operative.  They do not even teach our test on hand signals here anymore so younger drivers have no idea what they mean.

Muscle memory will correct the issue. I forgot more often than not the first few weeks of riding, now I find myself hitting the cancel button even when I don't need to.

My brother owned a 1978 Suzuki GS1000E which had self cancelling turn signals. I'm all for putting them on bikes as they would help cut down on the four wheelers turning in front of you since your blinker was on.

My 1976 Yamaha XS500 had automatic cancelling of the indicators, either after IIRC 100 meters or 20 seconds, whatever came last. So had my 1982 Yamaha 750 Virago, 1983 Yamaha 750 Seca, 1989 Yamaha 600 Tenere and 1990 Yamaha 1100 Virago. So it was strange to learn that the Yamaha MT-07 doesn't have this feature.

Thanks, stickshift. I'm checking out the ST2.
 
Update:  Anyone have one of these?  The Website above doesn't have much info... at all.  Nothing about cost or installation location--what it actually plugs into.  Not particularly confidence inspiring, in and of itself.  Hopefully, their product is better than the informative aspect of their Website.
 
Update 2 (8/8):  I got an email today from the company telling me what their site already had, that their item fits my bike.  Also, a link to the manual for the canceller (which I've not had a chance to look at), but no price.  I replied to the sender asking for the price.

This. I find myself randomly pressing the button multiple times in a row even though the signal is already off. So that way just in case it didn't shut off for what ever reason, I will still shut it off eventually.

Like this dude - happens in most of his videos. NOT condoning this kind of street riding, though!

Not the simplest but appears to be one of the smarter systems out there (most are based on time intervals which is not an ideal solution).
