Just installed the Kisan Tech SM-3 on my Fury.
This unit comes with all you need to:
* Convert turn signal switch from latching to momentary
* Controls the timeout for your turn signal to 10, 20 or 30 blinks/seconds
* Converts your rear blinkers to running lights (like the front, but one filament, still)
* Flashes rear blinkers simultaneously when braking (but does not if you have a turn signal on)
* Offers a hazard light-style blink (four clicks to the right)
* Offers a escort lighting (alternating left & right blinkers) with four clicks to the left.

This was VERY easy to install and I feel better that I'm not driving 'round the world to the left (or right, whichever signal I forgot to cancel). I am also happy to have more running lights (rear) especially at night AND the added flashing rear lights when braking to get the attention of that cell-phone texting little sh!t behind me to wake the $&*#@ up and stop.

Alan, do you think I could hook this up to my led tail light?
Stan,

I think you can w/o issue. I think you need to remove the "balancer" that places a resistance on the LED light so they match the front factory lights to keep the blinking from going to fast otherise. In other words, I think you need to remove that extra module that came with the rear lights 'cause this unit has a time flasher regardless the load balance.

The install guide is here:

I have it and works great. Havent hooked up the signal button return though. You need to hook that up for the full effect. No sweat with my Led brake light.

after the blink setting is up they just turn off. You have to push it in to cancel to use it again.

How do you operate it if you don't put in the return springs?
Instead of the return springs, I highly recommend putting in the foam plugs that keeps the switch from going far enough to the left or right to latch into place.

It was very easy to open the unit on the handle bar, work in the foam plugs, and put the unit back on the handle bar w/o much issue at all.

Also, when you splice into the rear blinkers, the left and right share a common color wire (green with some stripe, I think I recall a yellow stripe) that is the ground. You want the other wires (blue on the right, I think I remember orange on the left) that are the +12v wires for the black & white wire connections for the daytime running lights.

Ok with the foam but without it clikcing into place does the signal stay lit? If it doesnt click and still works the signals then I will get right on it. Let me know.

Yep, it only takes a momentary connection to get the Signal Minder to start working and it's countdown to automatically turn off.

And, you know about the running lights? The escort mode? The hazard mode?

I will definitely work on this on the weekend. To get the Hazzard mode you have to do the rear running lights. I dont want that but want the hazzard lights. I wish there was something else I could do to get the hazzards to work.

Not true. If you turn Switch #1 (of three) to the OFF position, it disables the rear turn signals as running lights. That, in turn, also reduces the intensity of the turn signals on the instrument cluster - since this unit makes them appear non-blinking on at all times.

Another happy customer of the Kisan SM-3! Thanks Stpete for the info, it helped me a lot
This forum rocks!

If ever you have troubles, call their Tech Support.
Andy is AWESOME!

I Googled for the lowest price way back when.
$110 from KisanTech direct.
Got mine from Texas Cycle Chrome for $95, but that one was replaced for a defect within.
So, might be worth it to get the latest and greatest from Kisan direct for $15 extra.
