I know you can get pipe nipples from a hardware store, I don't know if the threads will match up, but if your changing it you could just go with what they have, and change it all.

You can also buy longer/shorter turn signal stalks that might work with your stock housings. Dennis Kirk carries a large selection of different turn signal stalks.

All-thread's pretty soft, so it should be pretty easy to drill through a short length..
Usually, it's not heat treated and it's Grade 2 as far as hardness..

Drilling through 2 inches of all thread might be tough to do without screwing up the threads, and there is so little metal, wouldn't it get really hot??

I didn't find any just stalks at dennis kirk.

I'll check to see if a 1/4 inch nipple might fit.

Thanks for the suggestions

It's been a while but I found some at a local hardware store, not the big chain type. In the lighting department for rebuilding lamps.
