Turn signal stalks disintegrating
I searched around and haven't found anyone else with this issue... but my turn signal stalks are coming apart.. 3 out of 4 now.
Where the stalk joins the body, and the metal plate bolts on to clamp it to the bodywork.. the rubber has broken down and come apart, leaving the stalk hanging.
I thought I had done something wrong on the rear when I installed my Givi racks and relocated the signals. Maybe tightened them down too much or some such. Then yesterday, I roll her out to wash her and one of the front stalks is dangling loose. Bikes never been down, don't use harsh chemicals, just soap and water, spends most of its time in a covered parking spot.
At $45 or so each, I don't want to replace them with the stock pieces, so I reckon its time for so low-pro replacements.
Anyone else found their turn signals less than durable?
