    I do have the manual but i'm still a bit stuck. Wondering how to replace it with the least removal of tupperware. ;)

    I've never tried this but it looks like you have to take a fair bit off just to get to the turn signal connectors. Rear side cowls off (the plastic bits with slots for luggage), then the rear carrier, then the tailpiece cowl that covers the electrics. As for the turn signal itself, you might get away with unbolting it from the rear fender without removing the whole shebang!

    Sorry, I don't know what made me think it was a rear turn signal. It seems I had a senior moment (more like a senior half-hour).  :087:

    Looks much easier than the rear. Remove the inner fairing panel (some hefty clips and five of those black plastic push pin thingies). You should then apparently have access to the turn signal mounting and wiring connection.

    You could remove the fairing panel too if it gave better access. There are plenty of posts about that, and videos on YouTube. Easy peasy.
