front turn signal, fuel gauge and other

Anyone know where I could find a replacement OEM turn signal? My right turn signal got moisture in it and rusted out with the previous owner.

Fuel gauge is not working.

I actually think that is all for now, but likely more soon.

JCC, the high cost replacement is to get one from the dealer. A lower cost option would be to get an OEM turn signal from eBay.

Thank you! Was not sure if any online dealers carries OEM. LED may be better on the battery.

Yes. Besides replacing the lights with LEDs, there are 2 other major steps.

1. You have to replace the blinker/flasher with one that is designed for LEDs. The bike uses a common flasher, so this should be easy to find. The purpose is to restore normal flashing rates from hyper flashing rates, caused by the LEDs.

2. This one is a bit more involved. You have to modify the single turn signal lamp (in the tank mounted console) so that both sides of the bike don't blink at the same time, when you turn on a turn signal. In this forum, there is a sticky thread (at the top) explaining how to do it. I did it, it wasn't difficult or expensive.
