#1: Q: Virago Turn Signal Stay Replacement

Posted on 2006-07-23 21:58:32 by pinkpanther

A friend told me he saw a web site that explained how to replace the
rubber turn signal "stay" (holder) on the front and back of the
Viragos. However, I can't find anything on the subject.

I was wondering if anyone know how to replace the rubber turn signal
"stay" (holder) on the front and back of the Viragos. They seem to dry
rot pretty easily. I'm sure I could create something my self, but I
figure why reinvent the wheel if someone else hase already got good
idea.

Thanks,
Larry

By &quot;replace&quot;, do you mean &quot;put a new one of the same design in the same
spot&quot; or &quot;make a replacement to avoid paying for a new one&quot; or something
else?

I'm assuming that this rubber piece is a grommet that cushions the turn
signal and sits between the mount and the signal stalk. If that's not
what you're talking about, could you point to pictures?

Finally, I've found that occasionally spraying down rubber parts with
silicone lubricant helps keep them from rotting out as fast. HTH

'indiana' is a 'nolnn' and 'hoosier' is a 'solkk'. Indiana doesn't solkk.

Do the rubber thingumbobs go into a round hole, or a square hole?

If they go into a round hole, look for automotive rubber grommets that
will fit the hole and have the same size center hole.

Add two large washers to spread out the load on either side of the
grommet, and install a steel spacer sleeve over the part of the turn
signal that goes through the hole.

The length of the sleeve must be slightly shorter than the thickness of
the rubber grommet so when the nut holding the turn signal on is
tightened, the grommet is compressed by exactly the right amount.
