Came to the top of this hill had to stop quick because a car was coming and I lost my balance and couldn’t reach the freaking brake in time so I rolled back and crunch, busted my kuryakyn rear turn signal. And I checked they’re out of stock till who knows when. I looked on eBay and I can’t find that the aftermarket one and I can’t even find OE stuff. Got any ideas what I should do?

Might help to tell us or show us exactly what you have.

If your rig is the one in the photo, it appears you could order aftermarket signals and mount them into the existing unit, but you'll have to take out the existing signals and rig the replacements so they fasten into the holes of the existing rig. If he holes are too big, for your replacement signals, you might need to get some large washers with a center the signals base can go through for securing on the inside of the fender, and still hold the new signal from coming through the rig via the washers. Just splice in the wires to the existing wires and you're done.

Something like these:

Yep, but the problem is I crunched the metal mounting bracket too. Got to replace the whole thing, me thinks.

which side? left or right I believe they are directional for mounting.

also I don't believe the LEDs in mine work, but you should be able easily swap yours into them.

I fell down on the left side, and actually the turn signal works, it’s just the bracket that broke. The turn signal got road rash but I’m more concerned about getting a new bracket, even if I have to buy some new aftermarket turn signals.

ok I have these. I have 2 red and 2 amber, with the brackets, but it appears they might be shorter than the brackets shown in your image.

2 have the curved covers, 2 have the round covers, the chrome is a bit rough but likely easy to clean and buff out, they have been in storage for 16 years.

images below, all are yours for shipping, my guess is $25 -$30 anywhere in the US (except HI and Alaska).

That would be great, but do you also have this bracket for mounting? This is the part that I really need and cannot find anywhere:

Yep, I did. And there’s clearly no way to repair it so it’s either find another kury mounting bracket or else go back to the OEM one if I can dig that one up. I’m not sure the previous owner gave it to me. I appreciate you looking for it. I’ll gladly pay you over and above shipping for a kuryakyn if you happen to have one.
