919 oem turn signal question

Hi guys,

I just bought the bike and before I start modding it, I have to pass a safety inspection which means pretty much everything has to be stock (because it comes from another province, i'm in Canada).

The right front turn signal is separating a little betweek the stem (called the stay?) and the actual turn signal body (where the bulb is).

In the exploded views I can find, there seems to be a screw holding these parts together, but I don't see that on mine. Is is supposed to be there? I see something metallic inside a hole, but if it's a screw, it's missing it's head.

It's a 2007 919.

I plan on changing them as soon as the inspection is done, but I have to deal with it first!

Thanks for any input!

Can you post a pic or a reference to a diagram? I had the same problem with mine and I ended up with some epoxy or something in there (IIRC). I think there was a screw in there, but it pulled out the plastic/rubber that the threads go into.

I use bike bandit to get a break down pic.

I've been using BikeBandit for exploded view also!

See my attached image, I drew a red line where this thing is separating.
In the front it's open by about a little less than a quarter inch, in the back it's tight.

When I try to just push it back in, it goes, but doesnt stay.

That screw #14 in the drawing, I don't see that on mine.

Take a look at the left signal. How it's put together. See if it has the screw. That will be your answer

It's put together the same way, no screws, at least nothing I can see.

Ok, found the screw...

It's in the same hole that the wiring goes through. You have to move the wires aside and deep inside the hole you'll see the screw!

Was able to separate it and give it a little modification so it comes together a little better now.
