--------------My understanding based on other yamaha bikes is the following things have to be in place for the self cancel:
1 - bike has to be in motion
2 - bike has to have traveled 150 meters (490 ft)
3 - 15 sec has to have elapsed
I believe the last one might be an or, but I am not sure.
Exactly the reason I got ride of the feature...I like to put my turn signals on early, but damm auto cancel usually turns them off before I even make the turn. So I usually click my signals on a couple times for most turns.
I gotta disagree with that. I have had the same situation as '11 described when at a 4-way stop and making turns. Look down and notice it has turned itself off. I got mad a young girl once for almost pulling out into me as I made a left turn only to see that the signal was not on anymore.It won't turn off once you have stopped. According to manual. Need to be in motion.
I usually manually shut it off. I have a habit of clicking it regularly while driving from before I had this auto feature. But as stated above, it is a great backup.
