Signal minder

Morning all

I have been spoiled, my 2014 VFR has a signal cancellation from the factory and my VTX had a signal minder installed, it would cancel the signal after 20 flashes.

How come this is not a standard option on bikes nowadays 🤔 - oh well?!?

Be that as it may, has anyone installed an after signal apparatus on their F6C? If so, what did you use?

I found a Smart Turn System but they seem a bit pricy.

It came standard on mine. I would assume yours is not an ABS version?

Non abs - wonder if the switch is compatible with the non-abs version

I thought self cancelling was standard on all 2014 and 2015s.

No, well as far as I know. It requires the abs sensors as well and not just the switch.

Wayne... it is. On the ABS models.

I wish it was - in this day and age you'd think it would be.

I guess I could upgrade to ABS but need to addition research to see what all is needed.

There was no option in Australia as far as I know. It was ABS or ABS and any color as long as it was black at the time I purchased.

Yes i have tried the Smart Turn System. From what i can say it works briliantly. It cancels turn signals better than cars do. I have been using it for approx 1000 miles and I still dont know exactly how it works. Turns off after turns, turns off after switching lanes and doesnt turn off when you are standing. You can always manually cancel though.

Try to email them, you will get all the information. They helped me a lot.

I hate the signal minder as it only stays on 12 seconds. Turning off a highway or a road where you are doing a bit of speed results in the signal turning off before you turn. Anyone know how I can disable the signal minder? Maybe a fuse? Thanks.

Did you use the STS on a Valkyrie? If so, was it an easy install?
Thanks.
