Does anyone know what buzzer/piezzo I need to make a proper turn signal indicator ?

I like the ones they have on the Ruckus. Nice and loud.

I got 2 from radio shack and both are crappy.

I need to order other parts from www.futureelectronics.com today.
So if you have any clue which one works please let me know.

Nice work John!
Does your buzzer make the same click click sound like a car?
The ones I got are high pitch and anoying.

Thanks. That buzzer makes the high-pitched tone too. Don't know where you might go for one that makes a clicking sound. It would be an improvement.

humm I wonder if the actual oem part is a buzzer?
It sounds like a physical part moving, almost like a relay or something.

I haven't decided if I want to spend this much. But, it is an alternative.

Here's my audible hook up.

Go to Radio Shack and have them activate the buzzer you're thinking about using with a 9volt battery. Then pick the one you think will be best to meet your needs. Keep in mind that you'll be pulling 12volts hence it will sound a little louder...or so they told me.

If you're turned off by having the buzzer/beeper being too loud or annoying...then don't do it...but remember you want to be able to hear it above the ambient noise level so you know it's on. Option would be to develop a habit of pushing down on the turn indicator button routinely to make sure it's off.

I choose the buzzer that sounds like a reverse indicator and although it is loud...it gets a lot of attention of pedestrians and cagers since it sounds like a vehicle in reverse...hence I get noticed and by that time I'm on my way.

Please note that this was a GT200 install and the gound wire at the connector was easy to find and one of the turn indicator wires...the other one I had to fish around since the color of the wires were not same???

By the way, that white putty you see under the assembly is Uhu putty...found it the best way to affixed the assembly rather than using velcro.

Good Luck and Ride Safe!

Is there any other solution to this? My DH's motorcycle has the signal turn off automatically after 15-20 seconds. Wondering if I could wire that in at the same time as we do the audible.

I don't think you can wire in a autocancel as the turn signal is a mechanical switch. If you can, I could like to hear about it.
