Switchgear Positioning
« on: November 26, 2015, 02:08:47 am »
So after settling with the switch gear positions for almost 2 years, I started monkeying around with them and only loosened the phillips head screws on the right and left hand blocks and they seem to be held in place somehow.  Nothing external that I can see but they will not rotate.  The reasoning behind my wanting to re-position them is to rotate the gear so it is a bit more pointed up, not much but enough so that my thumbs can reach everything a bit better and I'm not trying to rotate my wrists downward as much.  Thoughts?

Just about guaranteed there are locator pins that positively locate the switchgear on the bars. Usually the pin is on the switchgear and there is a hole in the handlebar. If you sand down the pin, you should be able to rotate them into any position the wiring will accommodate, however, they may rotate with use and you may not be able to get the screws tight enough without cracking the switch housing since they're only plastic.

That is what I fear.  Not quite ready to make any mods yet.  Can live with the position I have, but....

Thanks.

There is a pin and hole on the throttle side, but I was able to rotate the left side cube with the horn button.

G-man 

I was unable to do that on my bike.  I could rotate the larger cluster for the stereo, but that was it.
