Has anyone had any problems with theirs - my bike sat for most of the winter and on getting it out again all of a sudden it's having problems cancelling the indicators. I have to push the button several times before it actually cancels! I've always thought it's a flimsy thing at best, now it's out of warranty is this something that could be fixed easily - or best taken to a dealer?

Mine is new, same problem. I have to cancel two or three times sometimes....

I wish it would automatically cut off...

I have a 2011 Ducati Diavel with very similar switchgear. It's a fairly common issue for the indicators to not switch on easily (not the same as cancelling i realize). Mine struggles sometimes when it's cold in the morning. Some people suggest spraying WD40 into the switchgear....haven't tried on mine yet.

I wouldn't use WD40. the solvent dries off and leaves an oily film which isn't good for electrical conduction. Better to use a proprietary switch/contact cleaner. My 1200 Multi uses the same switches and suffered the same problem and I had to clean them with Servisol contact cleaner they have been OK since.
The contact isn't a push to connect, it's actually a sliding contact so no matter how hard you press the button it won't make a better contact.

Makes sense. Good advice.
