Temporary fix for lost turn signal/ riding mode button

My turn signal button fell off or broke off while riding on a highway. I use my signals a lot so I probably fatigued the button to a point where it broke off. (lack of use of turn signals is one of my biggest driving pet peeves).

I know the signals automatically go off at a certain distance. Still I needed to have them available as well as the riding mode button so here is how I temporarily fixed it with a pen and yes, duct tape.

1. Take the pen apart and cut off the end where there's no ink.

2. Press this pen part into the hole as shown in the picture.

3. Press a piece of duct tape over it forcing the pen part through it. Make sure the duct tape has slack on each side so it's possible to move the turn signal button left and right.

Test that the pen part goes in as far as it needs to turn off the turn signals and to change riding modes.

After calling some bike shops, this button/switch can't be bought without buying the whole assembly. Cost of the assembly is around $100. So I made a CAD model and 3d printed this switch with button.
If your switch ever breaks off and your bike is no longer under warranty, post a comment or pm and I can make this part for you.

Both of those fixes are trick, and thank you for that offer. There could be a few of us that live by the indicator to take you up on that. Cheers.

I've had a number of PM requests on this. I guess I didn't think anybody would want one. I'm kinda dumb that way. It has something to do with feelings of inferiority and not being rubbed down with baby oil enough when I was younger. No. I mean i'm serious. I'm fuckn crazy.

Just to be clear, the 3d printed button needs to be glued on. You will also need to shove something inside the hole underneath the button or it won't work. It will take some finagling and effort and work. This is NOT a ducati issued, snap on, like new fix.

If you still want it, I'll need $10 shipping.

Some one did ask me for the CAD model to print their own. I will send the CAD model to you for free. If you don't have a 3d printer, I would check your local library or search for a makerspace in your area.
