Front turn signal rubber stalks

Hoping someone here has the answer. I've got a busted front lens and plastic chrome housing but the rubber stalk is fine. There is a set of signals with broken stalks on ebay. Is it possible to attach my stalk to different plastic parts? The microfiche shows this as a unit, but I'm hoping there is some way I can attach the two and have a decent looking turn signal. TIA.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

first the signals have to be removed from the bike. Then you need to fish the wires out of the old stock. pry the rubber out of the base and out of the housing then just push it into the new ones... fish the wires from the sockets through the housing and stalks... i had to fish each wire through individually... pretty straight forward... a lot of pressure is needed to pull/pry the stalks out, but still be careful not to break the "New" housing... you might try the "Bic" trick on the new ones first

Sounds good. Soap should help slide the rubber stalks in and out of the housing. Using the BIC pen liner might prevent the stalks from breaking in the future. Good suggestion!

I don't know whether they come apart or not, but you can get a whole new oem assembly from Dennis Kirk for $33.99. Dennis Kirk Part #: 21357 Jerry.

I replaced the sockets in my rear lights because when I first bought the bike there was a mix-matched set on the rear (one front and one rear). I do not recall it seeming simple to remove the rubber stud - although I didn't try.

...but if you decide to buy the whole shebang here's TWO for $38 (shipping included). That's what I purchased when I first bought my bike - mix-matched signals on the rear and no signals on the front.

Thanks Webby. Think that's what I bought for the project bike, which, like yours, had no front signals at all.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

Kinda on topic, I am looking for the part # for the rubber post, on the bike I bought all 4 of them are broken. I thought I had ordered the right part from Ron Ayers, part # 92027-103 COLLAR, but it is just the metal collars that go inside, not the rubber post.

I can't find the rubber posts for sale anywhere, seems you gotta buy the light and all to get them.

I've got one in good shape you can have for the price of shipping. But don't think it will do you much good. The plastic light housing is formed around the end of the rubber stalk, and there is no way to remove or replace the rubber without breaking the housing. You might get by with cutting off the old post, cutting the replacement post in the same spot, and glueing them together. Another member did that and lined it with a BIC pen tube for strength. NP 1 is a great adhesive for such work.

FWIW, it appears there is a true chrome layer on the back of the OEM housing.
