Severed part will be curing for the next few days. The surfaces glued are probably less than an 1/8th of an inch wide, though, so I'm looking for a back-up in case it doesn't hold. Unfortunately, only the entire assembly is orderable for $53, even though only a small component is needed, so if anyone has a spare they'd like to sell, please PM me. Although the part number online is 23037A for a Ninja 250, it looks looks like it's probably the same for the other three turn signal positions (23037, 23037B, and 23037C). Also, on the part itself is stamped P5152, which comes up online as being a Stanley part for the Ninja Z1000. It's the hard rubber / soft plastic part towards the center of the picture below.



The "glue" varieties I found which specifically mentioned working on rubber were the JB Weld SuperWeld ( SuperWeld | J-B Weld ) and Amazing Goop Trim Repair ( Amazing GOOP Trim Repair - Amazing GOOP Adhesives - Products ), which had a small-ish applicator, but I would have had to order them online and wait around two weeks for delivery. Home Depot only had general purpose varieties of both brands in-store. I ended up with the Goop Plumbing formula from Lowe's, because all Goop varieties mention being flexible after hardening, and it came with a narrow applicator tip, which was essential for reducing overflow mess during application to the very narrow surface. (Instead of snipping the applicator tip, I punctured it with a nail to get an even finer line.)

When I broke one on a Honda, I got just the used plastic part at Bent Bike.
That was donkeys years back though.

Thanks for the tip. Good to know for the future. They still have a website that lists some used parts.

I ended up getting lucky on eBay for under $13 with shipping. The turn signal is actually for a Ninja ZX600/636, but aside from the new one being stamped "1" while the one I repaired from my 250 is stamped "2", that P5152 sub-component I needed seems to be exactly the same.

GOOP experiment results:
It did not hold the weight of the turn signal, but I only covered the narrow touching surfaces - I didn't try to make a thick belt of it around the circumference on the outside of it.

The way the dried GOOP pulls off things so easily it almost reminds me of that stuff they use to attach the fake credit cards to advertisement letters. Good news is, it was possible to remove it from the inside of the applicator tip after it hardened (using a variety of scraping and tweezing type utensils).

There's a product, 3M Super Weatherstrip and Gasket Adhesive, that may work. It's available in black or yellow. See THIS VIDEO where it's being used to secure a chain masterlink clip.

In the clip, the guy fails to install the O-rings when he fits the masterlink and clip, but you get the idea of using the adhesive he calls 'Gorilla Snot'.
