Pre 2001 K1200RS turn signal pod alternative?

Greetings everyone as I am new to this forum. I have spent the last few hours searching this site for an answer with no luck so far, so here goes my first post / question: Is there an alternative to the pre- 2001 turn signal pods? Has there been a thread of installing a different type of turn signal and cover in its place? Any options? i personally don't even like the look of the stock pods. Looking for any ideas for a custom mod out there.

background on this scenario: I just purchased my 3rd K-bike, a 2000 K1200RS. It was a great buy , had a few issues cosmetically and was hard to start which equaled to me almost stealing the bike from the PO. The right side turn signal pod was missing, and the front fairing wing in front of it cracked along with a broken foot peg. The PO had dropped the bike backing it out of his garage , I believed him since there didn't seem to be any road rash on the fairing. So I purchased the bike with the left side pod signal attached but not working, and no right side pod (it fell off on PO during a ride). I then rode the 30 miles home and the left side pod fell off on the freeway. I went back to find it in a million pieces all over the road. I have since found a used right hand side pod, but not a left. After already spending over $1K on parts and accessories, I really don't want to spend another $116 on a pod. If you have a spare, please sell it to me. Or if you have an great idea for an alternative I would love to hear about it.

Thanks to this forum I have already change the oil, fixed the bad temp sensor which resolved the hard to start issue, changed the coolant, bought new tires, replaced the windshield, ordered a new seat, etc.. This site has a wealth of awesome recommendations and fix it threads!

What was your solution?

I lost the right front pod on the highway about a month ago. My google foo must be failing me, because for the life of me I can't find a used pod anywhere...

i would also like to know the answer to this as well. Ducedi - perhaps you could pm me as the one thing I really dislike on my 1998 K1200RS are the indicator pods.
