I believe it does have a 'Bank Angle Sensor'.
It kills the fuel pump ( I think) if the bike exceeds a certain lean angle.

Dont the turn angle sensor setfort the cancellation of the turn signal after a turn? Atleaast that is whats in my mind. It's old and feeble wwith a few screws lost.

The bank angle sensor should be under the trunk, and if you go past 49-deg on a turn it shuts off the fuel pump. The auto turn cancel is on the steering head.

The "Bank Angle Sensor" shuts off the fuel/engine in the event that the bike "goes down." This device was the subject of a recall in June of 1995 that applied to production years 1988-1993. The problem was that the original sensor could lose its "damping" fluid and the engine would/did shut off during hard cornering...try to recover from that one, it's like locking the rear wheel when you're heeled over hard in turn.
Good luck
