No infection, all checked and ok. Even did CAT scan because they were worried about brain tumour.
Second time it happened the vertigo passed after 1 day. Lets just say I'm not game to use my headphones on noise cancelling mode ever again.

can be securely attached to the bracket with the one bolt system. The hook will not be necessary as the bolt will hold it on with no issues.

Playing Devil's Advocate.  I feel the metal hook is ultimately important.  Yes, the bolt will hold.  Yes, the newly printed mount will hold.  But it is all attached to the original threaded receiver inside the master lamp housing.  Might be different up front.  Might be different on other models.  But, on the 98EV (to which I am most familiar) all of the rear blinker load is carried by the interior threaded receiver.  Invariably, the screw loosens over time and vibration.  Eventually, as the hook bends open, the blinker delivers a lateral or angular stress load to the threaded receiver and the receiver snaps away inside the housing leaving the blinker to dangle by wires.

I reconstructed mine by lightly gluing the broken receiver piece in place and then creating a solid fill of epoxy to surround the receiver and greatly increase its load capacity.

I suspect that creating a strong mount without a hook may solve one problem while exacerbating another.  I hope I'm wrong.  Again, my concerns may be model and position specific.





I have two 98EVs at over 100K each.  I still reach down and flex each turn signal when I walk through the garage just to be sure the hooks haven't spread open.

Likely as all hell you have a middle ear infection. The hairs inside your inner ear canals move when you experience accelerations.
You have the canals oriented in such a way as will make sense of accelerations in the X, Y and Z axes. If you make a coffee and look at the swirls in the top, then rotate the cup, youíll see that the fluid remains stationary as the cup rotates.
This is what the vestibular canals do, they make sense of the motion your body is experiencing by comparing the information from your eyes.
If you go below decks in a ship or look down and read a book while being a passenger in a car, youíll stand a fair chance of an onset.
I once saw an electron microscope image of the inside of a vestibular canal and it looked like the bed of the river Thames. Over the years contaminants build up and restrict the proper movement of the hairs, such that they send conflicting signals.



Itíll make you spew.

That would be a blast on the mountain roads around my area east of ABQ. A bit pricey for my toy budget however.

Really like the style of this car.   I prefer 4 wheels on this car vs 3 on other offerings.

I've had 2 bouts of Vertigo, both came on when getting out of bed. First time I couldn't walk for half a day. It was about 3 or 4 days before all symptoms subsided. I went to Dr and got everything checked out and nothing was found. Dr said some times they cant pin point it. I tried the Epley manoeuvre but that didn't help.
Second time it happened was about 2 months later and I started to think about what I had been doing The only common denominator was using active noise cancelling headphones for a long period (2+hrs) the day before. I googled it and results came up in the search indicting dizziness, vertigo and motion sickness can occur but aren't common in most people. I haven't used them since and in the 2 years since it has not returned.
I was recently speaking with an Audiologist about my tinnitus and I mentioned the vertigo and my suspicion on its cause. She said it may be possible the headphones are causing it. She explained tinnitus interferes with the way the brain processing background sound, and the noise cancelling headphones take the background noise away which may confuse the brain.
Just my experience.

I saw a physiotherapist this afternoon, after several tests she ruled out BPPV, my problem is left ear, but a different canal, canít remember which of the three but other manipulations and exercises to do. Basically itís a problem turning my head left and a horizontal alignment, still dizzy as hell and nauseous but she assured me in a week it will get better. Going back tomorrow for more work, itís draining and brings on nausea but I will do just about anything to get rid of this.
A viral infection of the left ear is the likely culprit and since I was a kid I am sensitive to spinning motion, I hate amusement park rides. That history coupled with my age apparently makes me a candidate for the crystals in my inner ear canals to become dislodged and cause vertigo until the crystals are realigned to their natural position. Sounds a little voodoo to me but I will go with the professionals.

I think a member has achieved the task of reproducing an acceptable replacement stem for the EV bikes. I received one in the mail yesterday and it fit perfectly in the turn signal housing. The material is a durable harden plastic which will bolt to the bracket on the bike and due to the quality of the material can be securely attached to the bracket with the one bolt system. The hook will not be necessary as the bolt will hold it on with no issues.
The stem will be offered in the SWAP MEET after the maker is satisfied with the quality of his replacement stem.
Here is a couple pictures of the one I received.
