Need coaching on accessory switch options
« on: June 24, 2016, 04:54:21 pm »
Hey guys, I could use some coaching on what switches people are using for accessories like aux lights etc. In addition to that I am looking for mounting options. Those funky shaped bars are removing a lot of options. Photos and links would be much appreciated.

Many thanks

My aux lights are always on and have a dimmer that I mounted just aft of the storage box poking up in the plastic (looks stock). The dimmer came with the lights. I also have a three position switch right next to it for my ambers, this one: https://www.superbrightleds.com/moreinfo/round-switches/spdt-round-rocker-switch/715/1921/.

I'm not near my bike right now, but when I am I'll follow-up with a photo of the mounted position of the switches.

Hey Coconut, thanks for the recommendation. That is exactly what I am looking for. I was able to find both the 7/8 ths and 1 inch bar size available from amazon so I am away.

Hey AZ Bob thanks as well for your recommendation. At this time I decided I dit not want to drill any holes in big Tupperware bits so I am going with the bar mount option. I do appreciate you taking the time to post in response to my request.

You can purchase those side cowling pieces from bikebandit.com for around $15 per side.
For $15, if you ever change your mind, you can put it all back the way it was.
