My old Kawa GT750 Shaftie had self cancelling signals. It's the only one I know of.

Do you mean where you simply press in on the turn signal selector and it stops instead of having to slide it to the middle "stop" position?

Apart from Gav's post above, never heard of a bike with "self canceling" blinkers like a car.

Lots of bikes have them.


They are generally sold to fat lazy bastards who are so oblivious to the road that they can never remember to turn them off.

Like Harley riders.

I mean they shut off either by time or distance traveled by themselves.My 1977 RD400 has this feature and most bikes Ive owned did. I thought I read it in the road test that Claude posted.....I'll have to re read it.

just scanned over the road test again...page 35..."all the niceties are there,self canceling turn signals,bar mounted choke"ect.

I want mine to work, its a great feature

There are no self cancelling turn signals on any ZX11. They are manually cancelling signals through a push on the button.

When do you turn the bars far enough on a sportbike, for that to even work anyway? :headscratch
I'm sure the Concours and Goldwing and K1300, etc have it. But I've never heard of it on a ZX.

And from what I understand, Kawi has been using "positive neutral finder"
for a long time. Before '92.

Bikes having self-cancelling turn signals works on a time/traveled distance combo to turn them off; it is not when bars are turned up to a point. You do not really turn bars more on a touring bike than a sport one.

Fair enough.
Still never heard of it on a ZX though.

It has nothing to do with turning the bars, they turn off after X amount of distance traveled.

Because it costs more money and you should be paying enough attention to what you are doing to not need them.

And again, Squidge is right.

Though some bikes use a some kind of leveling system to shut the blinkers also.
