2015 Self cancelling indicators
on: July 22, 2016, 05:12:13 PM
I'm not getting on too well with these self cancelling indicators.
Has anyone looked into a way to put them back to standard?
I am led to believe that they are tied in with the ECU/ABS sensors. Wonder if a simple wire disconnect near the Indicator Flasher relay would revert them back to standard.
Anyone?

Don't have a problem with the indicators, just use as normal. Ocasionally turn off tòo soon but not really a problem.

I ride the bike for a living in heavy London traffic. Indicators turning off when you really need them on is damn right dangerous!

Not disagreeing they cancel too often before needed ..but do you really think in London they even notice your indicators?.... Or even You for that matter ..on a bike?
I am not sure about the front ones glowing orange constantly either ..looks like your turning both ways! ...to a numpty in a tin can ..

I have them disconnected, as they cancel too often too early for me.
You have to cut two wires from the ABS fwd and aft sensors behind the right hand panel.
Don't remember which ones precisely, will have to look them up.
But I found them by searching the web. The VFR800 has the same installation and I found one who did the trick and told which colour wire to cut.

Great! I'm guessing the wires join into the indicator relay. Should be a relatively easy fix. Cheers.

Yeah, I find them a bit annoying on occasion!

My main complaint is leaving dual-carriageway / motorway.. the rules say we must indicate 300 yards before the junction, yet Honda have decided to cancel them after 131 yards... doh!

There's some info here:

The linked method is for the 800F model. Is the connector located in the same place on the 15-model 800X?
