I have a 2010 and the turn signal cancels after 10 flashes. Is there a way to reprogram so it will stay on longer?

I believe the turn signals are set for a certain number of repetitions, travel distance and bank angle when you lean into a turn. I don't believe they are programmable.

I spent some time researching for a solution but never found anything usable. The answer was always no
Just push it a couple of times.

Like mentioned already the cancellation is speed and bank angle sensitive. The slower/straighter you are going the longer the signals last

I am pretty sure it is distance plus a time, movement factor. When you turn them on close to a stop, they will blink all day if you don't ride too far.

I just am in the habit now of hitting the turn button several times if I use them far from a turn as you should at high speeds in the country!

After I first picked up my Goldwing, I felt the same that it could stay on longer to give anyone behind me plenty of time to know I'm turning. Now, I just hit the button a second time as I approach the turn.

It really isn't important why it does it but that it does it.
There are only a few things my 2010 gw doesn't or does do I do not like. This is 1 of them.
No Vox control for the intercom is another

Different slant(no pun intended!).
Since I ride a trike, I'm fairly sure the bank angle sensor has nothing to do w/signal timing:)

Thanks everybody.

Yes it is speed related and if stopped waiting to turn it will flash all of 15 times. I like to turn on the signal a full block before I turn so I will just have to get into the habit of turning it on and on and on and on.

Dirtdobber I wish it had VOX also. I also wish you could turn the NAV on while moving. I don't care and it makes sense that all the other buttons deactivate but the "on" button for the NAV should have been on the handle bar controls.
