I need help

I am the worst at remembering to turn off my signals. Anyone have luck
with a beeper unit or something. I just need a reminder and don't need them
turned off for me.

Thanks everyone

You could run a wire from the hot flash lead to your seat. That would remind you....

Sorry, I don't really have any useful tips for this one.

Make it a habit to scan the instrument cluster after a turn. That's how I do it.

The signals on my 2003 do not turn off automatically, I have to push the switch. I thought that was stock for the bike.

The Vulcans had a self canceling turn signal until about 89 or so. After that, they went to the current set up. Why, I don't know unless it was to simply save a buck in manufacturing costs.

Glue plexiglass to the top of your flasher so that it redirects some of the light back up to your eyes or lets you know the flashers are working.Not a large piece,just a button.

I just keep my thumb on the switch until I am through the corner...then as soon as I am positioned straight I just flip the signals off.

The best solution to the turn signal reminder was what I did on my last bike the EN500 Vulcan. Bought a couple of electronic beepers from Radio Shack (real cheap) and tapped one into each of the rear turn signals. Left the beepers nestled by the tool kit under the seat in the rear. Every time I turned on either turn signal there was an audible beep similar to what trucks have for safety when they back up. The noise eventually reminded me that the signal was not turned off. Good luck.
