Since you've got at least four Yamahas in your signature at or nearing 40 years old that had them, why Mama Yamaha didn't install is a good question. LOL

Yes, it's been argued to death.

If you do decide to do something, go to https://safer-turn.com/smart-turn-system/ and do a compatibility check. It'll ask for your email address, and you'll likely get a return email offering the correct device at a reduced price.

I guess I have a bit of a different take,, my 86 gl1200 Sei had self cancellers and quite frankly they have their own set of problems with timing out or extended “on” times,,, I guess I just don’t find the fjr setup that hard. Yep I occasionally do forget to cancel them but pretty infrequently, it ain’t that hard & the self cancellers have their own issues, besides the added weight & cost. My .02.

You all are funny AF!

Scorpion had it. It worked greatly!

And yeah, I did use the search, and did read the thread back from 2017, you bunch of Smart-asses!~

I was just wondering why they didn't keep it going.

I may have to look at the ST2.

Now having taken all that abuse, lol, I have noticed that a certain "whrring" pitch changes when the turn signal is on, and I am stopped. And once I startup, the engine sound kinda deadens that "whirring" cycle pitch.

Have any of you all noticed that? Or maybe I am not describing it clearly.

The ESs have all the hardware needed to make a true inertial turn signal canceler. All it would take is some more code in the IMU.


I suspect that the simpler systems from the -70s and -80s went away because of product liability considerations.

Time spent looking at motorcycles, even Harleys, is never wasted.

I think the same thing. If an attorney can convince a jury that a self-cancelling turn signal failed to cancel he'll get a nice payday. Never mind the fact that they worked just fine 40+ years ago.

I installed my Smart Turn System ST2 in August 2016. It still works great and I'm happy I did it.
