■ Automatic turn signal cancellation

■ Brake flash and override option built-in
I have been doing some testing working with Andy over at Kisan Electronics to set up there "signal Minder" product for my KTM 690R https://www.kisantech.com/index.php?cat_id=4
I've been using the signal minder products for years (mostly BMW's and a KLR) to primarily have the ability to use my turn signals as running lights. When I went to buy one for my 690, there was no KTM's listed in the application chart...so we started a project to change that...
If you have a KTM adventure bike with turn signals (like the 690) and the turn signal relay (located behind the headlight next to the left fork on my 690) looks like this:
...then the Kisan Signal minder SM-3S is a plug & play!!!!
Since this is the FIRST KTM application, Andy has set up a special deal for KTM riders;
Discount Code AN40511 can be used to type-in the 'Comment' section during checkout and the discount will be rebated the following day. Or, call their sales guys 888-464-5472 and they will take care of it.
4/8/11 update per Kisan:
AN40511 code is setup as 15% off for the whole order. So, if someone purchases SM-3S and LPC-16: the rebate will be $34.48.
I just got permission from Andy to post this info, so I'm not sure if they will have the install pics I sent them available just yet, so you can look at them on my website here: http://mikephotos.smugmug.com/Motorcycles/KTM-Kisan-Signal-Minder/16508610_HoNPc#1242602582_RFJeb
One last thing, the stock bulbs on my 690 are incandescent BAU15s. They are a bit uncommon but share the exact base as a standard 1156. To make an 1156 work you just have to file off one pin on the base. I changed out my bulbs to AMBER LED 1156's (clear lens) on my 690 to get the life and durability of LED's especially when used as running lights...and minimal power draw. You can get them here http://www.superbrightleds.com/cgi-bin/store/index.cgi?action=DispPage&Page2Disp=%2Fspecs%2F115x-x12x19.htm or go the e-bay route direct from Hong Kong for half the price ($16 for 4 delivered) and 3 weeks wait.
The Kisan Signal Minder is a smart circuit, so it detects resistance and adapts...NO PROBLEM running LED's!!!!
Bottom line, running light's make a HUGE difference in your nighttime profile, especially from the back...and the BRAKE flash mode is an eye catcher day or night! I'm also installing the Licensce plate LED/turn signal frame that Kisan makes on my 690...more is better!! https://www.kisantech.com/view_product.php?product=LPC-16
I've had signal minders on a dozen or more bikes ever since they have been making them (I was making my own hardwire circuits in the 90's) and they are GREAT products... ZERO issues in well over 350,000 miles!!!
