Self cancelling turn signal adjustment?

Is there a way to adjust the timing of the self cancelling blinkers? I understand it varies with the speed of the bike but in every situation, highway or downtown riding, I find it much too short.

I've had the same question myself, and seen it asked a few times on a couple of different forums. The answer is always the same, nope. I think it can be disabled with some tinkering, but the timing can't be modified as far as I've heard.

I think it is controlled by the speedometer/odometer . And is a measured distance. I agree I wish it could be lengthened/ increased.

I understand where you're coming from. I like to keep traffic, especially those behind me , aware of my moves. Oncoming traffic doesn't need to know, nor cares, what I do.

Was that a turn signal error or a hand signal screw up that Lee did..????

Of course it depends on who is telling the story...

alpac, Kerry is right, there is no adjustment for the delay. The bike's electronic brain is set on a function of time, speed, and rate of turn. Not sure but the bank angle in a turn may also play a part. I've noticed with mine that at a stop with the blinker on, if there isn't sufficient turn or lean when entering or navigation the intersection it won't cancel.

With a sidecar I don't lean at all. My signals will cancel after a certain distance. If I'm signaling for a lane change on the freeway they cancel after 100 yards or so; if I'm signaling for a turn on city streets they cancel after I make the turn - if I'm stopped at a traffic light they'll keep signaling until I complete the turn, unless I start signaling well before the turn, then they cancel before I make the turn.

Not the bank angle sensor (that I know of) but there is a little doohickey under the front fairing, just in front of the forks that cancels the signals when the fork turns far enough to the side, then returns to centre.


It may not actually be a doohickey though, it could be a thingamajig.
