There are switches on the handlebar brake lever and on the clutch lever as well as the foot brake lever. Any one of these three can prevent the cruise from setting if they are not working correctly. I do not know what the cancellation unit is that you are referring to. If cruise does not set, then how can you tell if the cancellation function is working?

I was referring to the blinker cancelation in the center steam. My brake switches both work the lights correctly but it might be the two clutch switches

The cruise cancel switches are separate from the light switches. One on each lever, one on the foot pedal, and one on the throttle.
The service manual has a good chapter on locating the problem as they are all wired in series, so any one can take out the whole circuit.
One thing to try while riding is to push out on the clutch lever and try to set the cruise. Next try pushing out the brake, and then pull up on the pedal. Try one at a time or all together and you might find the culprit(s). On mine it was a sloppy clutch bushing that was keeping it from working. Super easy fix.
The video quality is awful, but the information is good.
