turn signal cancelling unit?

I've noticed that the very early models had turn signal cancelling from factory. So I'm wondering, is a turn signal cancelling unit from the early models plug and play on the later models that didn't have it originally?

I was just looking at the online manual in the electrical section to see if I could find the canceler. Doesn't show it but I'll include the link in case you want to look. Mine is a 2000 so maybe if you enter an 85 or 86 the manual will show one. I would think it would be the hand control switch that would have the canceling circuit in it, since the switch usually pops back to the middle position after you select L/R and after a period of time it stops the circuit but I'm not sure. Anyway, good luck. Here's the link:

I picked up one of these from Radio Shack. Gonna hook it up to my signals switch.

75db isn't terribly loud, but should be loud enough to let you know your blinker is on.

Thanks for the info. I figured there was more to it than just plugging in the control unit. I got spoiled having the signal cancel feature on my last bike.

As Denny said, no, and FWIW, the cancelling system on the earlier bikes was iffy, at best. Some of 'em it still works; most have quit working.

Besides the cancelling unit, the TS switch itself is slightly different, wiring to the rest of the harness is slightly different, and there's a speed/distance sensor located in the back of the speedometer. I checked into converting mine several years ago; ain't worth the trouble, AFAIC. It can be done with the existing later harness, but pulling and moving pins in different connectors around, the additional connector block for the cancelling unit, and changing the switch in the handlebar unit would be too much of a PITA.

I'm notorious for forgetting the blinkers in traffic when otherwise occupied...just like anyone else! Let me know how you hooked up the buzzer, Carolesteven?
