off in the course of a ride, with no crash involved. A second original
stalk broke off in the garage a few days after installation.
Rather obviously the "rubber" is not of the best quality. Nothing
at all wrong with the lampholder, lens or wiring.
Has anybody come up with a simple way to mount the signals in the
stock position using alternative materials? The stalks are rather
elaborate moldings despite a roughly hose-like shape. Unfortunately
they're made of cheese.
There's some aftermarket, but for bikes this old it's getting thin
and I don't particularly want to change the bike, the existing signals
work fine. If somebody has a a simple bodge I'd like to hear about it.
Thanks for reading,
