Problem with OEM rear turn signal lights

I've gone through 2 sets of OEM rear turn signal lights for my 2003 Volusia. Both sets have the same issue. The rubber has cracked by the mounting under strain from constant vibration and from the weight of the light.

Has anyone found a better replacement that they could direct me to?

Greetings from Indiana.

vOlusia, your link didn't show up.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.

I finally got around to trying this fix. Unfortunately, this is not a fix for cracked rubber (by the mounting bolt). This is mainly for shortening the lights.


Thanks just the same though

I think shortening them will prevent the problem from returning. Physics. True you will have to replace them this time, but it may prevent the need to do it again.
