self cancelling Blinkers - Longer ?

DOes anyone know if it possible to make the blinkers stay on longer before the self cancelling mechanism cancels them ? And if so how to do this ? Mine is 86 750.

Thanks

I think only the 1st 2 years had them, my 454LTD had them too. As far as I know there was no adjustment.

They are not adjustable. It measures time and/or distance I think.

If you want them to blink longer, just hit the button again.

(yes, only the first few years had this feature.)

What year was your 454LTD?? I didn't have self cancelling on mine.

If it is electronic logic controlled, then there probably is a way to adjust them (not by design).....but that would depend on how far you can disassemble the controller and if you can access the circuit board.

Well you could just disconnect the unit. Then it would work just like mine....the signals will blink as long as you want them to then.....(and sometimes longer....).

Let's see now, I got it used when I was 19 and that was in 1986, so it was one of the 1st years for it.

The ones with this feature had a diffrent wiring harness. I would guess if you found all the needed parts and knew how to wire them it's possible to add this to newer models.

Can only guess why they discountinued this feature....likely cost. Few bikes had this at the time and the list of other "features" that the Vulcan had were already more numerous than their competition.

The big seller in the aftermarket world seems not to be self canceling units but "reminders" to turn you blinkers off.....

Just a note that I bypassed the wiring harness doing the MOSFET R/R install, and the self-canceling blinkers stopped working. I don't mind as they often annoyed me anyways, it just struck me as odd.
