Thumbs down Turn signal rubber stalks...:(

Getting my 2006 back on the road. Tires, chain and the other stuff no problem. The turn signal stalks have decomposed, being cheap rubber and garage storage. They are Stanley P5152 part but don't know if that is the rubber itself or the whole signal.

Kawasaki parts doesn't list them alone. Nothing online. Local mechanic claims they cannot be found.

I was thinking about making my own using polyurethane since I have access to a formulating company in Houston (Industrial Polymers) and have done custom casting using their kits. I met with the owner and founder of this company and got lots of good training. If I had a good part, replication would be a snap as I can make a mold from the good part and crank these out by the bucketload. Yes, I can get the exact Durometer hardness in polyurethane and make cores using sugar cast in molds also made from polyurethane. Once cast, the cores dissolve in water. Neat trick. Think Jolly Rancher type of candy comp which melts at 170.

This is a bunch of work but possible. If I could find replacement rubber stalks for less than $15 each, that would be ideal. It would cost me $80 to cast my own but then I could crank out replacements for $10 each and even do it in any color. Black is best for UV resistance but they can also be painted with flexible paint.

I found a them sold by the pair on Ebay. Brand new. Aftermarket I believe but hard to decipher any difference vs stock. I had to cut the plug off the old set and sold to the new set. Mounted up perfectly and work just as originals did.
