    Been a feature on my 2012 XC, my older 2010 XC was not as bad, now just hit it twice.

    I had a new flasher unit fitted last year due to water damage still the same.

    Yeah mine cancel prematurely all the time. I've never been impressed with any of the electrics on this bike. I don't think there's anything you can do about it since it's probably a function of the ECU.

    Mine does this. Really annoying. I can't ever replicate this when needed to. I've noticed they seem to randomly act up after at least a hour of riding. I was thinking about picking up another auto cancelation module. But thinking it'll still do this. Hoping someone would figure this out.

    My '14 XCT has not had a problem with the blinkers what so ever, as a matter of fact there is a lot of times I just turn them off manually as I have already made the turn and no further need to have them flashing.....

    They appear to stay on for an overly amount of time really.....

    I just noticed this yesterday on my Gunner. Is there a preprogrammed timer on the turn signal? Sometimes I think I turn them on too early but yesterday I knew I hadn't when I made a turn.

    On the XC, I believe the turn signals use the same circuitry as the fuel gauge. Or both were engineered by monkeys.

    my 2012 never had an issue, traded it with 30,000 on it . but my 2014 just started doing it and i'm at 17 thou right now. up to this point i thought i just wasn't hitting it hard enough but now i see there's an issue across the board. this could surely be a safety issue as we all know using them is key. time to turn up the awareness with this situation !

    My 14 cross country does this too. I would rather have manual cancelled turn signals. This could be considered a safety issue, since the signal turns off early and could confuse moron drivers behind you

    just had some new tires put on the bike at the dealer and i mentioned that the blinkers may cut out early at times. they checked it out during the post mount road test and the mechanic did notice that it cancel out a bit prematurely but said that it wasn't uncommon with the vics or the indians for that matter. i've since put on a few hundred miles and now that i know whats happening it won't be an issue. i just check it more often and if i have to hit it twice , i will. since i have been monitoring this it hasn't cut out early after the second hit yet,,, i hope i didn't just jinks it ,,,lol

    Is the auto cancelling not related to vehicle speed..? Example turning left at a stop come round the corner change up to 2nd they cancel. I've noticed around the 60km/h mark they don't operate for a long period of time. I always assumed it was because the speedometer is capable of both MP/H and KM/H. So back in the motherland doing 60mp/h you would only be changing lanes on the highway and not require a long duration..
    I could be way off here tho.
