Kisan signal minder?

I'm about to purchase one of these and don't feel like removeing my bags, seat etc just to see if 2 or 3 prong flasher and then redo again next week. Anybody know for sure which one is used on a 06 KLR? I went to the Kaw parts diagram site but does not specify.

Is that a beeper for the turn signals?

I wired two beepers into my turn signals so I would have a beeper when they were flashing. I cot the beepers at Radio Shack for $4 each. All I had to do was wire them into the turn signal wires behind the faring.

I'll go out to the garage and check the flashers.

The parts diagram shows a br and orange wire so I would say it is the two.

I did not notice the diagram at Kaw. I had the seat off today anyway to wire up a power port and the flasher was not under the seat. I turned on a directional and sounds like its coming from either behind the instraments or behind the headlight.

The Kisan turns off your flasher after 15 - 30 seconds. you program it, there are 3 choices, you can also wire it so you have 4 running lights using your directionals, you can program that function for bright or dim running lights. The cheapest price I can find is $87 at california sport touring. com. Most places are 99+.

I usually have 3 bikes around and they all have a differant system of turn signals, gets confusing and dangerous. I have wired in LED turn sigs on the dash bigger than life and in your face but the Kisan is a nice farkel if you can go the bucks, I'm not 100% yet. I guess I'll go back to the garage and remove the rear dash cover with a can of suds.

I don't have a problem with the $8 beepers I use, that sounds like a good thng until you say the price, and it don't sound real bad if you say it really fast. :razz:

It is a two prong flasher. I didn't take my bike apart I have an extra harness I stripped off another bike last year, so I'm not really sure where it is on the bike. My guess is around the horn, on the right side.

I forgot to mention I'm getting real hard of hearing which is why I used the big LED's on the dash of my Aprilia Tuono, they did work good but at times I still did not notice them. I would need beepers inside my helmet. So I guess with my hearing loss $87 is not a bad safty investment, the other 2 bikes I'm riding have auto shutoff as OEM. I did use the Kisan on a BMW R1150R and was very satisfied after I got over the initial pain.

Its very imbarising when a cage pulls out in front of you when you had your signals on and reaize it after you flip em the bird.

Kaw, the flasher is located right behind the triple tree, under the frame cross bar that supports the fuel tank. It is a two prong flasher., just went out to my pile of extra parts and checked out. It is accessible from the right hand side of the bike. I am also hard of hearing. Take fuel tank off and turn the ign. switch on and then the turn signals. Follow your ears. It is pretty audible with the fuel tank off. A little tight getting it out. Aftermarket flashers do not fit the O.E.M. holder, so you will need to use a little taco technology and a few zip ties. I also hate having to take off all the Tupper Ware off the bike, but that is the nature of the beast.
By the way, it is almost January. Time for Saturday afternoon runs to Tortilla Flats Jan. and Feb. for live music on the patio and look at all the incredible expensive iron. If you've never been, it is a blast.

I agree. I was never in that crowd. Just is not my cup of tea. I do the Apache Trail to Tortilla Flats in late Sat. morning or very early afternoon to avoid those that do get all berred up. Correct on the pirate costumes. It is just unreal what some of those people spend just to get that as you call it "PPIRATE" look. Typically the average is that the D.P.S and Sheriff's Dept. peels 4 motorcycle riders off the canyon walls each Saturday through March. I've seen a few, it is pretty ugly.
