Thought I would share what I just found. I've put about 4000 miles on my 7 at this point and have have found 1 thing that I really find annoying. It's the lack of self cancelling indicator lights. i have found a few solutions for the self cancelling issue, but they all involve redoing the type of switches I used... which I don't want to mess with.

Then i was watching a video of a caterham test drive last night and noticed that they have wired a piezo buzzer to the signal switch, so you know when they are active. Bingo problem solved, I ordered a few of the buzzers to wire into my system. But then I thought about it and realized the only thing more annoying than leaving the blinkers on for long periods, is sitting at a traffic light with a 90db beeper going off every other second. So I did some further digging and found that motorcycles have the same issue and that they solved the problem by adding a delay to it. So it doesn't start beeping until after 20 flashes. Then I did some further digging and found that the same person offers a version that adds a switch that limits the buzzer until after the brake is released. anyway here they are. Hope this helps someone. I'll post an update when it arrives and I wire it in.

If these links die, do a search on eBay for MOTORBIKE INDICATOR BUZZER
