Perhaps. I have no experience with it. But after a lifetime of riding Hondas with the exception of my last two bikes, I still check everytime I use my signals even though they self-cancel. Old habits die hard. So if you've been riding for decades you might find that the money you spend is unnecessary if you too check them everytime anyway.
Several VTX owners have placed Leds on the windshield facing them.
They are wired to the TS wires.
Chet's Rattlebars had several schematics about using a piezo unit to scream at you lest you forget to turn them off.
One version used the brake light to keep the piezo quiet except for the time when brakes were on.
I looked at the Smart TSS and found a place that stated it would not work on MC with Manual push to cancel.
I saw it several days ago, I have not found it since.
I have installed them on my 1800S and also on my Honda Magna.
They work surprisingly well. The installation is pretty easy. I was able to just raise the gas tank, without removing it all the way to mount the little box. All the wiring is done in the headlight bucket.
You need to open the turn signal switch housing and place two small foam pads inside the switch itself. This keeps the switch from actually latching, when you slide it either left or right. The circuit is activated to begin flashing, but the switch pops back to center position without actually latching.
I was really surprised at how well it works. It always works for a real turn, and usually it works for a lane change or a traffic circle. It senses the tilting of the bike so you need to change lanes with a bit of a leaning motion so that it sees the bike come back to fully upright.
If you just slowly drift from one lane to another without leaning the bike, it doesn't sense the change.
If you signal for a turn, but don't actually turn it will shut itself off in about 20 seconds or so as long as you are moving. If you signal for a turn while stopped at a stoplight or sign, it will continue to flash until you finally make the turn, no matter how long you sit there.
It is a pretty sophisticated little gadget.
I bought it cause I had been used to this feature on a Harley that I had. I had totally gotten out of the habit of manually turning it off. As long as I just rode the Honda, I would remember to release the switch, but when I went back and forth to the Harley, I got out of the habit of turning it off.
Thank you all for the input. There various times I know I hit the turn signal just to make sure it is canceled. Then again there are times it has been on for a few miles. One of the STS reps sent me an email with a great offer on the system and for complete customer support through the install if needed.
Just got home from the Calgary Motorcycle Show.
Highlights were the new V4s from Ducati. Indian had several Challengers there. Yamaha had the latest Venture and Eluder there. Harley was showing off their latest Road Glides, and Livewire, but failed to have the new Pan-American or Bronx bikes...
My GSXR Suzuki rolled off the side stand again the other day (in front of 18 mates) and when I arrived home there was my VTX in the garage, sturdy and stable on its sidestand I almost went over and kissed it. Often taken for granted (not anymore) that the honda has a nice reliable stand. Easy to...
I haven't ridden a long time....
Like a lot of guys I've talked to, we sell our motorcycle and trade them in on strollers and our leather jacket are hung up and replaced with work uniforms. Now well into my grandfather years I found once again what I've been missing for all these years. Man...
