Is it possible to change from old to new cruise control buttons?  I just got my TTSE and have found it awkward to activate the cruise control. Thanks!

It IS possible but would need the complete switch cube ( around £100 )
to be replaced with the newer version, which would involve removal of
the Fairing and  Fuel Tank to access the socket that it is plugged into.

Thanks Coconut.
I think I will just get accustomed to reaching over a bit.
Ride safe.

Right or wrong, I always leave the cruise control acctivation button pushed in (2014 TTSE). In so doing, I only need to thumb the Set button when I want to engage the cruise control.

I also do the same.

That's the way I use the Cruise Control too. Just leave it on.

With the strength of modern glues, it would be easy enough to fashion some "extensions" to the rocker switch and glue them in place, even using a small stainless screw as well if your confidence in adhesives is lacking.  An easy and cheap solution to making the paddle type switch found on later bikes.

I've been thinking much the same myself for a while, maybe it's time  :084:
