OEM Turn Signal Support Stripped

Hey all - the other day I had my bike at the stealer for some warranty work. I've had it in to this dealer twice in situations where they had to remove the fairing. The first time, they stripped a screw in the outer. This last time, they stripped TWO more and filled the hole with red loctite hoping I wouldn't notice. They ALSO stripped my turn signal mount (rear/short bolt) out of the plastic housing. I've plastic welded the problems (because of couse they "were like that" when I brought it in - hate this dealership), but I'm not thinking the turn signal is going to hold well.

I've searched, scoured, and dug for the OEM part number online, but can't find it for the life of me (tried ronnies cycle shop microfiche, but it's wrong). Anybody know it or where I can find it by chance (I'm looking for the base, not the light housing or support as I have the hidden fairing support)? I could call the dealer, but I really don't trust them much nor do I have any ambition to set foot in there anytime soon for fear of not being able to make bail in time for work afterwards...

If anyone has replaced with aftermarket (that actually fit), I'd love to get that info too. I tried the alloy art pieces of sh*t...what a waste of money.

So by stripped you mean, the plastic in the outer fairing no longer has threads for the screws right? So JB weld or plastic welded. thats a good fix! I had one screw hole in the outer that stripped out its threads and some JB weld fixed it.

As far as the turn signals go, im not sure what you mean about the plastic housing? The turn signals are not plastic.
i also had the rear bolt of one of my turn signals come loose out of the housing while trying to tighten it up, and loctite was all it needed to fix it and it is holding up just fine.
Still a little confused about the part you are trying to find. can you take a picture of what you are talking about?

are you referring to part 25 in this picture? DIRECTIONAL MOUNT 68933-04, DIRECTIONAL MOUNT, LEFT 69199-04
Loctite should work fine if so.

And you took it to them a third time?
