Wee turn signals / indicators, a FFS...

Dear Suzuki,

Why are the turn signals not all interchangeable. One part for you means cheaper to produce and for us cheaper spares.
Why do the fronts have a large wedge shaped flange to engage the fairing when the fairing could have been squared off to allow the flat flanged rear turn signal to be fitted.

That's hilarious I was cursing about this earlier - I spent way to much of my afternoon trying to replace a broken turn signal with something less prone - like many here who use these bikes the way Suzuki's marketing department meant them to be used.

The notches do not line up for the aftermarket signals meant for the cousin's - sv650, gsx750 - both sets were different from each other and the wee-strom.

Japan perfected parts bin sharing along time ago to the detriment of it's competitor's - why wouldn't it make sense here? Ironic that BMW bikes have interchangable signals between models, but their cars of course do not - while Lexus/Toyota signals are interchangable on their cars but...

Not many weak points to these bikes but this one is an obnoxious oversight - aren't there enough of us to justify a decent aftermakert alternative?
