Replacement Turn Signals

Hey does anybody know if there is any aftermarket turn singal kits out there? I need to replace the left turn signal on one of our DL-650's.

OEM is nearly $50 :x

Any help is appreciated...

You can get those over at http://www.mawonline.com/lockhart.htm#Turn%20signals Of course they are flush mount and wont stick out as far as the others. I've also seen some carbon fiber ones on bikes, but I'm sure somebody else will chime in about those. At 16 bucks they are cheaper than oem replacements.

Ps: Supposedly the flush mounts dont break in a tipover. I"m hoping not to test that theory.

You may need to mod fairing mounting hole for those turnsignals.
Newenough.com has soe adapters ,so no need modification on fairing.
Be carefull some cops are pretty sensitive for non-Dot approved lightintg.

Well I did say the bike would be dropped by new riders but at least one person seems to think nobody drops the bike :roll: . It is a tall top heavy bike when fuelled and even experienced riders have dropped it. No shame really but a reality when dealing with this bike. It is one reason why I don't recommend it for a nOOb. Of course if you are huge with a 34" + inseam then common sense says a 500gs isn't going to work for you, but it's still my opinion there are better bikes to learn on 8)

I have a turn signal I'll probably be selling on ebay sooner or later. Thankfully a drop at a standstill in the yard, while learning to brake does 0 damage to the bike. Wouldent have been so good on pavement.

I've tipped mine over a few times. I now pick up all broken pieces and epoxy glue them back together.

If Suzuki would just sell the lenses it would'nt be so bad. But ~$40 for a blinker is a bit excessive.




I am also learing of non DOT flushmounts. I want to be seen as much as possible by the many blind cagers we share the road with.
