2nd Gen 2010-2014 Turn signal bulbs

What is a good replacement bulb # for the turn signals? One of mine came apart (bulb separated from the base) and I can't seem to find anything similar in amber. I'd even use red for the rear.

#R10W - 10 watt - 13.5 volt - G6 - Single Contact Bayonet (BA15s) Base
Pretty standard miniature base, should be at any parts store, clear or amber bulbs
standard incandescent and LED are available.
I find a new brand "Jam Straight" at O'Reilly's

NO. Our bikes need RY10W NOT the R10W
I tried ALL the parts stores with no luck. While they had some of the R10 style bulbs that you are stating above, they DO NOT FIT. Forget about finding an amber set! The guide posts are not oriented right to fit in the sockets of the Versys turn signals. After doing some extensive research the posts on the Versys bulbs are at 150 degrees offset, where as all of the standard automotive bulbs are at 180 degrees (directly across from each other. Like this:


So What I did temporarily was buy a pair of #5008 10 Watt bulbs, grind down one of the posts flush, paint the clear bulb with RED nail polish and install them until the correct replacement bulbs I ordered come in. Was a bit of a PITA but they will work. I kind of like the red rear signals better than amber too.
