Need Idiot Lights

I know I should post this in the wanted ads, but no one ever looks there. Mods, if this is inappropriate I understand and you can move it. I would like the stock idiot lights and wiring to replace mine. I have a tear in one and would like to replace it. Does anyone have the original idiot lights sitting around that they want to sell me?

Where's the tear?, if in the lens then they're available separately. If in the rubber sleeve then that comes with the wiring loom, I believe.

There was a recent thread with other suggestions:

Yes, it's the rubber sleeve. I'll check out the other thread. Thanks!

If I order Item #12 below will that give me the rubber sleeves too?

Difficult to tell. It's called a "sub-harness". It's posible that the lamp holders come with it as they're not shown as a separate item, costs around 100 though, worth looking for alternatives.

Yes, the lamp holders are attached to the sub-harness.

I'd try some heat-shrink wrap or tape around the rubber boot before spending that much on a new harness. Another possibility is to see if anyone who installed the Triumph tachometer kit will sell (or give) you the old sub-harness, as the tacho kit comes with a new one. Then you can clip off spare lamp holders as needed.
