Audible turn signals

I have searched this forum to no avail.

I am looking for a solution to install some type of audible beeper to my turn signals, due to the fact that in bright sunlight, I fail to turn them off sometimes which could cause a dangerous situation. I own a 2006 DL 1000.

Has anyone out there done this modification with positive results?
Does anyone know of a company that sells this type of modification in kit form?

There are several on eBay for $5.50. Look like a buzzer the splices into the turn signal circuit. Not sure how effective it'll be at speed with a helmet on.

I'm not immune from leaving a turn signal on but like many? I have a habit of pushing the cancel button randomly as I roll along. Anything to remind you is a good idea.

Just hook up both turn signals to a piezo buzzer, using diodes to isolate each. I've done it in the past, but don't bother anymore....even tho' I do still forget to turn 'em off occasionally..

Can you tell me what globes you currently have in your signals ?

I'm not sure on your bike but most have ba15s globes.

If you punch ba15s beeping into Google you will get reversing beeper globes, you should be able to get a match for your needs.

You will need 2, one for each side.

You can put bigger warning lights up on your dash so they are more easily seen then you don't have to put up with the noise.

I just got myself into the habit of continuously cancelling my signals weather I need to or not.

Here is an alternative idea from the ST-Owners site for the buzzer/beeper for the turn signals. I have also included a link for the hookup of the beeper. Lots of reading to find what you might want. Lol.

The Chets buzzer page is geared towards the Honda Valkyrie, the basic wiring applies to all, you just have to find the color code for your wires. has a kit for this mod.

I had that on my '78 80/7. Most hideous sound you'd ever want emitting from a motorcycle. I quickly found the source and unplugged it.
Along with self canceling turn signals I reckon it's a bad idea. Get used to pushing the button.
I used to ride across time zones with the signal flashing. Never bothered me a bit. Some guys are so anal about it they'd zoom ahead to indicate your flasher was still going...Get over it!

Reading, there is a company in the UK that offer a "BASIC INDICATOR WARNING BUZZER - BIS01", as a audio alarm. Maybe there is something similar on offer, closer to home?

I've had lots of bikes without auto cancelling signals. I got into the habit of pushing the cancel switch every time I used the clutch, shifting up or down.
It is such a habit now, it's almost irritating, LOL, but I don't have a turn signal flashing that I don't intend to . I do the same on the Yamaha, and it self cancels.
