I don't have a lot of room in my garage and was trying to squeeze past my RS125 and I hooked my left rear turn signal with my body. It snapped right off with zero resistance? :bangwall:

I found the replacement on AF1 site, (8127656 ) but it is $50.00 USD. Please tell me that the signals are designed to snap off easily to avoid damage to other more expensive parts and that there is a simple small part fix.

Any racers out there have a set they took off the racebike they would be willing to part with?

Thanks.

These signal lights snap off very easily regardless of brands or makes.

Might be just as cheap to buy a used one off UK eBAY and ship it over? In fact, it might be relatively cheap to pick up a used pair or set off UK Ebay for future use! you never know, handy spares

I wouldn't go that far. I hit a deer with my Honda CBR and it slid a long way on the the front signal. It was ground down a lot, but it never broke the stem or the mount. Unlike the Aprilia signal, it didn't take much at all and it is now dangling by the wire.

I'll look into that. Thanks.

THat will be my temp fix, but I hope it doesn't snap again while riding and end up in the back wheel. :eek:
