After 4 years of owning my 1996 K1100RS I discover the bike has automatic signal canceling! I remember someone mentioned that it had it but I never saw it until now. I guess I was not giving it enough time. Is it just timed in the flasher box or tied to some other curcuit? Can the time be changed?
Sorry to let this one slip. Not programmable. It cancels after a certain time AND distance are both covered. That’s a simlification, but essentially true. At high speeds it stays on for a certain time no matter how much distance, and at low speeds it stays on for a certain distance no matter how long it takes to cover it.
Interesting…. I’m only in my 4th month of K75 ownership and I’ve noticed my turn signals seeming to self-cancel now and then….. but haven’t picked up on a discernible pattern. I’ll have to pay more attention!
The design of the turn signals is a bit awkward compared to my Concours, but we won’t go there… :rolleyes:
give yourself a pat on the back. it took me four years…duh!:)
Decided to leave them alone on this morning’s commute, and what do you know? They cancel! Learn something every day…….:D
One of these times, I’ll tell you my “how I learned the sidestand retracts when you engage the clutch” story….. 😉
