It will be hard to get 1/2 the quality of oem Jap quality in led for any price. Maybe look to used part seller, usually at 50% of retail (there should be a lot of wrecked Versys by now.) And Partzilla is usually at a significant discount to retail (there are others too of course.) Be glad you can get oem parts period, even more with electronics leading edge parts which the Japanese bikes are famous for. Ebay led parts are usually crap, with a capital C!

Oxford is a good brand part, for heated grips usually, and Partzilla is decent on price (sometimes.) You might want to check the same (exact) part prices on Amazon and ebay. Good luck with your engineering. Pics help a whole lot if you want constructive feedback (words are too fuzzy.)

I'll echo the stay away from Ebay..but with the caveat of stay away from anything from China or Hong Kong...I'm sure there are some mighty fine products coming from those places..but there is no way to tell what's good or what's trash (that could kill you in the case of brake and clutch levers)...My Suzuki came with cheap replacement turn signals...In a set of four there were two different bulb types..one of which isn't available here in the states...With a USA address at least you know they're somewhere you might be able to track down..or at least find some reviews online...BUY AMERICAN
OEM parts may cost more BUT..the fit right..work right..look right and don't scream "I've been in a wreck"...

My suggestion is to follow andrewhtf's advice. When I trashed the front sigs on my Bandit I just made aluminum adaptors like he said.

I totally disagree with some that say China parts are garbage.
Most .......if not all are made in China and sold in the USA.
To say they are dangerous is an ignorant claim.
I have been using these parts with NO issue at all.
I think the weakest link in most cases isn't the parts but the person using or installing them

cant say ALL accessories from China are garbage.
there are pure rubbish and there are really good stuffs.
sometimes it is luck, sometimes it is chance,
paying more not necessarily get you good stuffs.
paying less not necessarily means that item wont last.
it is always a gamble buying stuffs from China sellers.
if you got something good yeah all is fine and rosy
if you got something bad oh hell these are POS.

i had some pretty worthy good buy, i also had some bad purchases, but still it doesnt deter me from buying again in future. just buy from a different seller. look at their ratings. that should be of some help, paying couple more dollars buying from a highly rated seller is a safer bet than buying from a hardly rated seller with low transaction volume to save a couple bucks. well unless you dont mind risking it if that few dollars means nothing to you. you might get some hard-to-beat bargain.

that being said, buying from china - DO NOT expect ANY after-sales service. if you need the whole package of after-sales support - buy local, buy from a local seller whom you can reach and get support from. that's the reason you are paying more compared to Chinese stuffs.

OR

if you can fabricate/make/weld something yourself, have the tools and time for it - there is an immense feeling of satisfaction in making something yourself - and save yourself the agony of dealing with a thrid party.
