Turn Signal suggestions

Hi, just bought a 2008 and the stock, left front and rear turn signals are snapped off at base of stem. Previous owner tried rubber glue but it's not holding. I've looked at a number of replacements and am a bit overwhelmed. I want something large enough to be noticed at night, sturdy enough to hold up to people knocking into it and fits well. Any input is appreciated!

Lots on eBay for under $10 bucks/pair...unless you want OEM...then a little more.

Swing by a Kawi dealer and get them to run the VIN. There was a recall for faulty signals on the 08's (had mine replaced) and if your bike wasn't done the recall should still be valid.
I'm not terribly fond of those small low profile LED signal lights, a buddy had them and in direct sunlight you couldn't even see them. Probably better ones out there now though, this was a few years ago.

Thanks for the info. I looked for recalls on the Kawasaki website using my vin but didn't see any. I'll take your advice and check with the dealer too.
