Are you talking about the stalk or something else? Iím replacing my OEM ones with some I bought off of eBay. Itís a complete turn signal with bullet connectors. Iím replacing the bullet connectors with OEM connectors I bought from Eastern Beaver.
The turn signal kit was $14.95 a pair FWIW.

Electric motors from refrigerators, freezers, & furnaces in a garage setting can give off ozone, which is bad for rubber & plastic parts.
Paints, varnishes, thinners, fuels left open or drying in same area can be bad for rubber & plastics.
Yes, my shop used to be a Kawasaki dealership.

Perhaps you should show the stalks to the Kawasaki dealer, per the suggestion from the Customer Care Specialist.

The factory Recall on turn signal rubber/plastic stems pertained to 2008 & 2009 models Only.
Jeeze a 9 year old bike. Even if you had purchased the 48 month extended warranty it would be expired by now.
The 3dcycleparts $20 kit may be right up your alley.

You could go bootless

No recall on the boots, no good response from Kawaski
My 2011 has no recalls on it according to Kawasaki's website. And when I emailed them about this, they replied with this. Since they aren't willing to fix provide replacements, I'll be reinforcing them with a splint of some sort, and a lot of tape. Hope that passes inspection.
Thank you for contacting Kawasaki Motors Corp. U.S.A.
This VIN you provided does not have any recalls. If you a concern with the unit please contact your dealer to schedule an inspection.

Feedback: Hi, Iíve heard there was a recall on turn signal rubber boots for the KLR-650, but I put my VIN in to your site and nothing came up. Mine is a 2011, and three out of four boots have rotted apart. Why is my bike not part of the recall? Clearly they are defective, as they should not have rotted away so soon. The bike is garage kept. Please consider replacing these for me as I am not interested in buying all new turn signals at full retail when the part should not have failed. My VIN is JKAKLEE1XBDA34566. I bought the bike brand new in 2011, original owner. Thanks for your time.
