    Has Anyone Changed from Orig Cruise Control Switch to the Updated One?

    Looking for a 2015 SE or later but if I find an earlier MO can the CC switches be swapped? Curious if the wiring is the same.Assuming it is.

    You should not have any problem with the wiring since what changes is the format of the switches, but the function is the same in both.

    Hold onto your hat when you buy that assembly.  Mine got changed on my 2013 via a good will gesture by Triumph USA due to a wire coming loose from the connector down by the engine.  It takes stripping the bodywork to do all that.  Glad I didn't have to buy it!  You might find the switchcube on ebay somewhere and manage to change just that, but that's not Triumphs method for a right hand switchcube issue, comes all pre assembled.  Trust me I saw it with all the wires installed as a complete assy.

    There are people who say that it is uncomfortable to go up and down with the cruise control buttons, yes, because it is inconvenient to reach with your fingers without releasing the accelerator ...

    I don't know if this is your problem and replacing the button panel is complicated because you have to disassemble half a motorcycle to be able to access its two connectors plus heating if you have the latter.

    Well, if you are somewhat handyman. You can simply replace the cruise control up and down button without actually replacing the entire keypad.

    Simplentente is to disassemble the button panel that has 3 screws, once removed, remove 3 very small screws and the cruise control button will come out, then replace only the part of the button, with the new button that is more elongated to reach well with the fingers . Put it back together again and you have it ...

    I have photos of all that process.

    PS: You don't have to touch the interior wiring of the button panel, it is simply a matter of replacing the black plastic for raising and lowering the cruise control. + -

    No, number only of the plastic of the cruise control button, I do not know and I do not know if it is sold loose.

    I got it from another keypad that I bought second-hand.

    I have photos of when I changed the plastic of the push button and I will post them here so you can see them.

    Watch Ebay for a right hand switch control (2014 or 15 or later) and wiring harness and you might find a used one reasonably priced.  After I had gotten used to the one on my 2013 it took some getting used to when it was replaced.  Now I see that it was an improvement, even though at the time I didn't see the need.

    The fingers of my right hand did not reach me well to press the button and I had to do it with my left hand so as not to release the accelerator. Now with the button replaced if I get right with the fingers of the right hand without releasing the accelerator.
