Talking Kisan Signal Minder: Update

For those who may not know, (like me!) There's a great little gadget called the "Kisan Signal Minder". My bike has one, and I highly recommend it. It makes your signals self-cancelling, and has other options to flash your brakes, use your signals as running lights, create 4-ways for emergency or escort. Other options also! Great stuff! Takes about 15 minutes to install in place of your old flasher. Here's the link: https://www.kisantech.com/

This should fit the 2nd Generation 1800 with the 9 pin connector.

SM-3R Replaces stock 9-pin relay of newer Honda Rune and some VTX models.
https://kisantech.com/pub/media/wysi...M-3R-Denso.jpg

The 9-pin adapter of the SM-3R has the running light option built-in. Using all four turn signals as running lights increases visibility.
However by using the DIP Switch #1, you can turn them off.

For bikes that have only (1) dashboard indicator for both turn signals, use DIP switch #4 accordingly.

There is also a SM-34R adapter plug that breaks out into two connectors and two pigtails, one looks like it would go to the 3 pin TS flasher

my opinion.

No vampire clips it plugs directly in on the 2005 and up. Unplug old unit plug in new unit wire tie in place done. There is a separate model for the earlier bikes.

my opinion.
If you look at the installation guide, they list by the type of adapter: (sm1, sm3, sm3r, etc.). Most of the VTX 1800 use the nine-pin socket. They have about 4 different models, with different configurations, and cover just about everything.
Believe me, if it looks complicated, I'm not going to do it.

The only time you'd need a vampire clip, is if you want to tie in the brake-light for more options. Otherwise, it's just a straight swap, and maybe a ground wire to the frame. Easy-Peasy.

You don't need to hook up all the options. If you're still using the stock signal flasher, you just swap it out for the new one.

It's definitely an adaptable gadget for a flasher!
