1984 R80RT Broken turn signal switch. Replacement options?

A plastic part on the inside of the left controls has broken and now the turn signal is actually stuck on left. I took it (somewhat) apart and saw the toggle's intact, but a piece connected to it is broken.

...I need a replacement turn signal regulator. I gather the R100 will also work, I'm unsure of what other models would bolt on a R80/7.

Should I keep checking ebay? Thanks for your time. - S

My switch was intermittent and I broke the plastic 'frame' of the switch itself (the 'snap-in' tab) while removing it from the handlebar housing to clean it. I was able to glue the parts together with superglue and they worked fine. They're fairly well supported once inside the housing.

I don't think that BMW sells this switch as a separate part from the whole housing assembly. Take a look as Max-BMW's fische listing:

I'm not aware of an independent source for these switches. I'll let you know if I come across one.

I got lucky and got a Euro left switch group on my R80RT when I got it I guess because the PO broke something as well. Mine now has the headlight switch which can be turned off.
