Sportster signal lights

A friend has a 1987 sportster. she says you have to hold the signal light button on in order for the signal to work. if you let go of the button the light quits flashing? sounds to dangerous to be correct? with my 2001 fxd you push the button and it flashes until the bike leans then upright and cancels its self. shouldn't hers at least stay on with out having to hold the button in?

She is right.Thats the old school system. Before self cancel systems became standard. you hold your finger on the button take it off and it stops.
