turn signals auto cancel??

Hello all KRS/GT owners. I'm really enjoying my new ride, an '04 KRS. Great handling machine, despite the common characteristics of this model.

Does anyone know how the turn signal auto cancellation work on my KRS? Is it based on time or motion? Can't seem to find any notes about that in the owners manual, nor does my dealer know for sure.....or does it even have this feature?

Whooo...this has been raised as a question before, and I don't think conclusively answered. I believe it's a two stage process, as it's based on the speed you're going. Under 35MPH, it's a specific distance. Over 35, it's timed. Mine is 15 flashes when the speed is above 35, but I haven't exactly timed it. Good enough for changing two lanes at 65 in a non-agressive manner.
Now, the 35MPH cross-over may be some speed less than that, just not by much. Hopefully, other opinions will rise to the occasion, and maybe someone will actually measure.

Ray, thanks for the info. I'm going to give it a try. Coming from riding bikes with left controls for turns and cancel, I'm going to have to get used to the right controls for that. The auto cancel will sure be a good thing

Also, they'll blink all day at a stoplight or stop sign, then cancel themselves once you get moving over about 5mph.

My signals ALWAYS cancel at 50 MPH when accelerating regardless of time or distance

Don't quote me, but I believe it works on a "set distance" to turn off. If above quote was true, the signals would never turn off below 50, and mine definately do. It does not have anything to do with how many "flashes" occurs. If that was true, and you had a long light, it would shut off, which I am sure BMW would not engineer into a bike.

It's about time

I think it's 15 seconds IF you are in motion. Way too long in IMO but not adjustable according to my dealer.

Interesting, mine always cancel at 30 when accelerating from a stop, don't know about accelerating from 30 or 40.

timed cancellation

The turn signals will automatically cancel after 15 seconds while the bike is in gear, regardless of what speed you are traveling. IF the bike is in neutral or if the clutch is pulled in the auto cancellation will no longer work. This is why while at a stop light it will never turn itself off.

Clarification: Mine also auto-cancel below 50MPH. What I'm saying is if I accelerate briskly/WOT/etc they cancel as soon as I hit 50 MPH. There's no waiting so-many seconds for it to happen. It's like 50 MPH overrides any time or distance algorithms.
