Tonight, coming home, a few miles from home.
No biggie, had plenty of bikes without turn signals, can still use hand signals.
Anyone else had one break?
What fits, or do I have to buy genuine?

When I opened mine a year back I thought, that's not very good quality

Anyway, you could fit & rewire a HD one?

I ment a small switch block next to it

I installed a extra switch block for auxiliary lights, real clean, but here are a few samples

cool, Ill wait for daylight to see better and open the switchblock and retreive the other half of the broken piece, then Ill know exactly what Im looking for.
Maybe even a zap with the mig will rejoin it.

pulled the switchblock off, unscrewed the other half of the broken bit , got it out and cleaned it up.
Got cold feet on tryna zap it with my mig as itd probably burn it up, so I walked over the road to a mates shop who has a tig, he said his tig would definitely burn it up, and advised me to go talk to the guy at the radiator repair shop.
See if he could braze it with silver solder.
He said leave it with him.
So I go back there this morning to hopefully pick up my part and find out what he drinks.

For a measly $20😀
Victory only list a complete switchblock which Id never buy even if I could get one.

just in case

just in case anyone else has this problem, and everything has a lifespan,
putting the part back in aint as simple as getting it out....funny that!
I found taking out the 3 internal screws and disconnecting the clutch switcb allowed me to get the insides of switchblock lower up into a better position to get the repaired part back in.
The return ball is spring loaded so positioning the part where it sits then pushing it into place with pliers and direct downward force and it snapped into place fine
a smear of dielelectric grease on the sliding surfaces while apart and shes apples now😀
