Broke my turn signal switch

Don't know how I did it but I clicked it to signal right and it just got jammed over there. I pushed to cancel and the light stopped blinking but the switch stopped working for righthand turns - and it's kinda angled and jammed too.

What's the compatibility of other model/year Duc signal controls working on a '02ie?

Take it apart, you may well find that you can fix it; they're pretty simple things.

One (short handled) phillips head screwdriver is all you need. Left had switch gear off any late model SS will work, probably also 916, 996 possibly others.

99 SSie

75 860 GT

I suspect you're right... Ducati is a small enough company to make them all the same.

Took it apart; sprayed it with silicone and filed the edges where it hits the spring loaded ball (hope to make it a smoother transition). And straightened out the lever (it was a little bent)

Signals like a champ now.
