SM-1 unit is designed as a plug-in replacement for many early European and some Japanese bikes.
signalMinder uses a computer chip to cancel the turn signals. There are three selectable timeouts; 10, 20, 30 seconds. Built-in DIP switches allow the setting you prefer.
Running Light Option:
By attaching two quick-connects included to right and left turn wires of the bike, you can convert ALL FOUR turn signals to running lights and establish a dual-channel system on your bike. Using them as running lights increases visibility. However by using the DIP Switch #1, you can turn them off and still maintain the dual-channel system.
With the dual-channel system, when you activate the RIGHT turn signal three times in succession, you get 4-way hazard flash function. If you activate LEFT turn signal three times in succession, you get Escort mode flash function.
Built-in RUN-TURN-BRAKE functions:
If you hook-up the 12 volt supply from the brakes to the signalMinder brake input:
BRAKE OVERRIDE OPTION allows continued flashing for those times when you are waiting at the signals to make a turn and do not want the time-out to cancel the flashing. It suspends the time-out feature until the brakes are released.
Above options are not required to be installed, but utilizing them allows fully automatic turn signal cancellation. We highly recommend hooking them up.
Please Note! NONE of the wires on the bike have to be cut. The kit includes Scotchlok brand of Insulation Displacement Connectors (IDC) to tap into existing wires. No special tools are required for installation. Follow the steps outlined in the Installation Manual included in the product package.
The last thing you need is to worry about canceling the turn signals! Use all of the built-in options of the signalMinder and enjoy the ride.
signalMinder has an add-on product known as vectraLIGHT. These LED arrays simply plug into the signalMinder and inherit all of it's features. They are designed to mount under the turn signal mirrors.
