Turn signals AGAIN!

I am looking for a quality replacement for my turn signals. I can't seem to find any posts regarding a good pair of after market turn signals. I found some on Ebay but they look cheap and only have a straight threaded shaft on which they mount. I doubt they will stay in the proper position because they don't lock in like the OEM lights. Last year I shaved my rear signals and I love the look but the rubber was so bad it is now breaking apart...and now the fronts are about to go. The OEM are too expensive for parts that will rot and fall off in a few years so if someone knows of a suitable replacement please let me know. Now I need all four!

Vulcan 750 Turn Signal Repair

It is bull crap to have to spend big bucks on turn signals,
about ten years ago i found an aftermarket turn signal that was the exact same, they could of passed as the kawasaki brand ones,
but that shop in D.C. is now some sort of soul food joint,
Found them back then for $20 for all four,
If anyone found these aftermarket signals, let me know, would like backups,

Something else i learned,
Plastic arms on signals love armor all,
i give a little squirt about every other week w/ my seat, handles, and any other plastic and rubber on the bike, keeps them moist and dry crack free

This is a simple REPAIR for the signals,
Found this on anther site,
Some dude did a simple fix,
ghetto, yeah sure it worked,

http://twofoos.com/index.php/8/vulca...signal-repair/

Be sure to click on "Click here to follow along with the repair."
it right under the little advertisement,
ans above the comment section.

Electric tape might sag after a while,
maybe using a thin coat of some sort of adhesive on the plastic bic tube to keep it better joined, and using the tape to mainly keep it in place while adhesive is drying, could even leave it on to give a bit more protection, can't hardly see it.

I've done this as a preventative fix on my project bike. If you pull the signals entirely, you don't have to cut the pen body lenghtwise. Just thread the wires through the cut pen, then slide the pen housing inside the signal arm. I used the "harder" blue bic pen, instead of the softer white body pens. The blue ones fit perfectly. It's a ten minute job - most of which is taking the headlight apart to get to the wires.

If they were broken I'd also use some silicone to hold the whole thing together.

Hey Alatri thanks for dragging me back here, it's been along time since I've been active. The repair you referenced is mine, some piece of lumber or some crap fell against the bike and I just needed it fixed. It worked a charm though.

Glad to see other folks have done the same thing, guess that means it's not a half-bad idea!
