    New switch assembly fitted today. I don't know the price here but they're $250 in the U.S. so I think the extended warranty probably just paid for itself!

    I also had a long thread on this and did this approach. Has only lasted a week though and I'm commuting without indicators at the moment!

    Best bet is to get _any_ 1200 switchgear right or left and cut the switches out as they are all the same. I've just sourced one for £12 delivered.

    Also, be sure to grease the switch tops so that they don't dry out and crack.

    The CPC part number was SW01809. No Longer available I'm afraid.

    C&K (in the US) seem to manufacture these switches and list part number C & K - K12CBK15N - Tactile Switch. Link here.

    Newark (in the US) give a part number K12C 1 5N which is the C&C switch. Link here.

    My daughter lives in San Francisco so I'm thinking of buying some, having them sent to her then collecting them when I'm over there in June and bringing them home.

    BSD ordered a batch a few years ago and if memory serves they cost £12 delivered here, but hopefully I could beat that if my plan works.

    If you have no luck getting sorted Jigweed I think I might have a spare one here in the shed and we should be able to get you sorted.
    There are two opinions of the GS. There are those who have ridden one who think its fantastic and there are those who haven't who know its crap.

    Thanks so much Aidan you're a star. Ill endeavor to source them myself as neither of mine are working at the moment so can't wait til June. I would thoroughly recommend going into business though on these cos they're in demand it seems. Thanks again.

    Just wondered if you might be able to get them sent to your daughter earlier and she post them to uk. But if that's not possible i understand. Cheers

    I had a similar problem and it was simply corrosion on the contacts on in the switch, same with my heated grips, I took the switch apart cleaned with fine wet and dry paper, and put it back together and they both work fine, its a bit fiddly but not difficult.

    THanks Bowser, believe me i have seen the guts of these things a good few times now and cleaned and precisely reshaped the tiny connectors but i think they are seriously shot now. The rubber boots were both perished and i think thats the only protection they have. I also get wet a lot so it all adds up to nasty conditions for a poor microswitch. But thanks for your input.

    I might have found some in the uk. Its a bit difficult to see properly cos of the rubber boot covering the actual switch but the part number seems the same. What do you think?
