Degenerates!!

So, came out to this, on my bike. No clue what happened.

Can just the switch be replaced? Or, is this one of those "have to fix whole assembly and will cost 100,000,000, for a 10 cent piece of plastic" fixes?

Looks like, according to online fiches, that can only be replaced as an assembly. No individual parts available. You might be able to scrounge a switch tab somewhere and patch it back together. Never had one apart on a Wee. Good luck!

If you seldom use the emergency flasher you could cover it with electrical tape and call it good. Aggravating when some one messes with other peoples stuff. Looks like a whack with a hammer.

You could find a red button cover, or piece of plastic, on the cheap and epoxy it on top of what's there.

That totally sucks. When stuff like that happens you are left pissed off and feeling violated. Not the prison type LOL.

Had a flat once rolling away from a lunch stop. Had noticed three teens hanging out by the bike from the eatery window. Pulled the broken tip of a pocket knife out of the tire.
Why do a$$es do this?? Because they are. Sorry you got stung.

Hopefully your bad luck is over and done. you could either look into using a small piece of plastic and the appropriate glue or look for a used switch assembly on ebay. I think I would look into gluing it. let us know how it turns out.
