Jinx, I believe there is a motion sensor in the system so if you are sitting still turning the bars lock to lock will not cancel the signal lights. But as often happens, I could be mistaken on this....
I think you are right. There may have been a bad connection in the system. I went for a ride today and the turn signals were working as expected. Right after straightening up from a slow speed turn the turn signal would turn off. Before they would not turn off until I had traveled some distance.
Thank you for your reply.
