    Helpsos Turn signal switch ball lost

    While trying to clean the turn signal switch on my son's VTX 1300, the little ball went flying and is no where to be found.

    Anyone have a suggestion for a replacement without having to buy a completely new switch?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately Partzilla and Babbits only sell the entire switch housing with switches, not parts for the switch

    Look on fleabay under used VTX parts. You may be able to get a switch cheap. Any motorcycle scrap yards? I'd imagine it's probably the same for most Honda's

    If there was any way to get me a "size"... I have several "acceleration pump check balls" saved from rebuilding carburetors that may fit just as well.
    also..BBs? Or maybe Airsoft Pellets?

    I think airsofts would definetely be too big. I suppose I could take the switch apart on my 1800 to find out the size

    Pretty sure that the ball is smaller than a BB which would be .17 cal. or 17/100 inch. You would need a micrometer to measure it. I don't have one but I have a friend who does. He works on metric bikes on a regular basis, I will call him tomorrow and see if he has one that he can measure for us. Stay tuned and I will post what I can find out tomorrow one way or the other.
