Turn Signals?

Hi All, I am the proud new owner of a 2008 Versys. Except for cosmetics, it's pretty sound. My first problem is the turn signals. The rubber is shot and all four are hanging by their wires. Two hundred is a little steep for factory replacements. I am looking for a cheaper work around. Ebay has a bunch of low priced LED signals. How difficult it is to make the conversion for a "Magic Smoke" electrician? Can it be done simply?
Thanks
Randy

Something with the '08s. The rubber on my crumbled within a couple years. I found replacments from another model year, and they are now coming apart as well. I'll be watching this thread for good replacement ideas

'08 Versys.. Givi rear rack, JCW trunk and E21's, Givi shield, Madstad bracket, Speedy peg and mirror brackets, lowering kit, SC Seat, R1 Shock.. other stuff. '09 KLX250 setup for singletrack. 2011 Xterra, '80 CJ-7

Well, I bought some cheapies off AliExpress. (@11bucks for 4) I was amazed at how easy it was. I just swapped out the connectors (green to red; black to black). I just plugged them in and they worked like they were made for the bike.
