Where to buy smoked turn signal lenses that actually fit? Nomad 1600

Do not buy the smoked lenses on ebay! Just bought a set, broke the first one trying to install it. They are not made to the tolerances they should be, aka they are a fuzz too big for the blinker housing. I contacted seller and he refunded money, as he said several have complained about the same thing. I urged him to stop selling junk parts like that, but he didn't seem to interested in that idea.

With that being said, I need to find some more smoked turn signal lenses for my 2006 Nomad 1600. I would like to know where you guys bought them and if they fit like oem. Thanks!

have you tried CruiserCustomizing.com? that is where I get most of my stuff for my former Suzi C90 and now my Voyager. Have never looked for smoked lenses on there, but its worth a search

Thanks, will check it out! Even clear ones would be less gay than the amber ones lol. Really don't want to use that spray tint junk.

Got mine at J&P Cycles. Input your model and check out the "lighting" section.

Good find in an online store, they have a bunch of stuff! Thanks!

Unfortunately, I could not find any of the smoked lenses. I did find one pair of clear lenses that said they just "popped" into place and did not look exactly like what I believe should fit my turn signals. Could you link me the ones you bought? I would even buy a set of clear ones if I knew they would fit correctly. My turn signals have 1 screw in the bottom of the housing, then the lens pops out.

Here are the lenses I got for the rear:

Kuryakyn Deep Dish Bezels with Lenses | ZZ33307 | J&P Cycles

And the front:

Kuryakyn Deep Dish Bezels with Lenses | ZZ31036 | J&P Cycles

These fit perfectly on my VN2000 which also has a single screw in the bottom. Changed the bike input to yours (2006 Nomad 1600) and it says they fit. Lots to choose from in the "lighting" category.

Hmm, not exactly what I was looking for but those clear ones may work.

I definitely feel your pain on the clear lenses. I put mine on today and did the exact same thing, broke the tab. Tried to superglue them back on, what a drop shoot. Had to order new ones from the dealer (amber) just to ride. There getting changed soon for sure.
