    Much appreciated. I can’t complain things could be worse. It will be a fun challenge to see how far I can disassemble my bike from a wheel chair lol.

    Update: sold to a loving home! Recovered my own expense as well as helping an XRL brother who was not able to get in on the original group buy--all good.

    Having an issue where my signals just kinda stay on and dont blink, or blink super slowly. Blinker module going out?

    The switch is pretty crappy as well, to be honest. Have to kind of push on the switch when moving it left or right or it wont activate. Anyone had that issue? Havent tried pulling it apart yet or anything, just not sure what to look for.

    ^ What Steve said @Snypr18
    I just went through this after my bike was sitting while I completed other maintenance projects.
    Careful with the little indent balls, you can lose it if the plastic is old.
    First time I cleaned everything and then slathered dielectric grease in there. It was just as bad. Cleaned it all out again. Scratched contact points to clean shiny metal and everything works like new. Quick and crisp. Good luck!

    +1. My pig's indicators would come on like 10 seconds after I activated the switch. I opened up the switch and it was full of old sticky grease. Cleaned everything and put a small amount of grease on the sliding part. Good as new.

    Something wrong with the gasket there? Seems to weep a little bit of oil...

    Thanks everyone. My switch does feel all sticky / gummy so that is probably whats up.

    ...So much for that Perfect Fitment.

    Well, That's why I posted it originally. To see if any body had any experience with those. Good to know they are not worth the aluminum they're made from.
