Had the bike 3 weeks now and only one question
on: April 18, 2015, 07:07:02 PM
1,000 miles up and falling in love with the bike. Bike lowering worked well 35mm, I have had the side stand shortened by 20mm and that is spot on. The lowered seat I got from Honda became arse numbing after 60 miles so sent it off to have jell pads added by motorbike-seats in Coventry. 200 miles covered with new seat and so far so good, big improvement on the comfort. Satnav, Autocom and baglux all fitted with ease. The only thing I am struggling with is the self cancelling indicators, if only there was a way to turn this feature off, I hate it.

I too have the self cancelling indicators, and I'm not a fan either.
Although there is no way of disabling this feature you can simply just cancel the indicator after your maneuver as you would normally without waiting for it to stop.

A lot of the time it's not about me cancelling them. It's about them cancelling before I've made the turn, which can dangerous. Now you may say turn them on later, but there are time you need to give people a bit more warning that you are turning and the blxxdy things turn themselves off   :138:

I have the same problem. I tend to turn them on, count to ten and them flick the switch again to give a longer indication

I agree pain in the butt self cancelling indicators. I have raised this issue before and there is always some smarty pants that has the answer.
"put them on earlier"
"put them on later"
"put them on twice"
"adapt your riding style"
"You will get used to them"

The only answer is get rid of them theyre Poo!

Not a fan either.

For me it's roundabouts, they have a habit of cancelling half way round. I asked the dealer if the feature could be disabled, Honda said no.......

Really???....I've found the indicators very good....they aren't on a timer...I can sit at a set of lights indicating for ages...they cancel after the actual turn...there must be an orientation sensor built in..they seem to cancel @4-5 flashes after the turn or even a lane change...The best self cancelling system I've had on a bike...
Now...do we actually need it...that is another question!
It all started with a 1959 Vespa 125 Super.......
