I think the post says it - but....

What's the wire that goes down the center of the triple-tree on a GL-1200??

I know I oughtta know this one - but I don't.

My name is Rusty. I'm an enthusiast of things that ride, drive and fly.

The distance between "Impossible!" and "All we need is a free weekend and some kind of rocket motor" is about 10 drinks.

I did some digging and I see that it is called a cancel unit on the parts fiche. It is called an angle sensor in the electrical trouble shooting manual.

My 1200 turn signals will self cancel if I'm moving and make a turn and if they time out. They will cancel immediately after a turn. They will cancel down the road a ways if I do a lane change and don't turn them off. If I'm stopped and turn on a turn signal and turn the bars from stop to stop the turn signals continue to flash.

There is an interaction between the cancel/angle sensor and the speed sensor. Does that agree with what everyone else finds to be the way theirs operate?

That wire is definitely the self canceler unit. It is linked to road speed Lyle.

That wire down the center of the triple tree runs the turn signals along with the self cancelling feature. Mine got disconnected during the steering head bearing replacement, and I had no turn signals at all till I reconnected the connectors.

Yes, If the speed sensor fails, the self canceling stuffs fails. My LTD has a lane change function, at speed activate turn signal and eight flashes later it cancels. I'm not sure of the speed but somewhere around 30mph the signals go into the eight flash mode.
