No problem at all. I have had a few bikes with self canceling turn signals, and I disabled them all. They work fine on cars, but not on motorcycles. Mine always self canceled before I reached the turn, so I had to turn them back on, then they continued to flash after making the turn. I tried really hard, and got it timed just right a few times, but I realized just how ridiculous it was having to deal with such an infuriating and completely worthless system.
And yes, I have always disabled the sidestand and clutch safety switches on every bike I ever owned that had them. If I didn't feel I could ride safely without them, I wouldn't be riding, because I wouldn't be qualified. And they are also prone to failure, and can leave you stranded. I feel the same way about ABS and linked brakes. I'll control my own brakes thank you.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
