aftermarket control/switch options

Hello,

my bmw handlebar controls are pretty shot - blinker switches broken, paint missing, plastic is very faded etc. they work ok but as i bring this bike back from 20 years of neglect i was wondering what other options there are for aftermarket controls.

i am going to convert to magura mc for front brake so i was just seeing what anyone had used or tried that they liked or disliked for aftermarket controls.

thanks

I bought left and right KS switches for my project bike. I also have non-BMW throttle, brake and clutch...so the KS seemed as good as anything else. Not as elegant as the Motogadget switches, but I'm on a budget.

I'll take a pic this weekend (I'm on the road). It's in assembly-mode right now, but you'll get the gist.
