OEM Switch?
on: May 11, 2015, 09:30:07 PM
Looking to replace the  pretty naff Givi switch as supplied with their S310 driving light setup - cant believe that a decent manufacturer like Givi can supply such "dreadfully appalling" equipment

Currently have a blank above the Traction Control "square" switch

Have identified part number 08332-MGS-P00 as the Honda switch - £22 ??? for a switch - and 5 weeks lead time to wait [thats via David Silver Spares who to be frank seem nowadays to be taking the proverbial

Any idea where else I could get a square switch from to do the job?

Input appreciated, as ever

I had to wait for mine to come from Japan as well, but it is the nuts. :305:

It's still £22 for a "damm-disgraceful -easy-to-manufacture-in china" switch   :430:

Was never aware that Dick Turpin was employed by Honda

yes but it plugs straight into the loom without any faffing, changing connecters ets. :305:

OK, I agree it's not for free, but if you have to buy some other crap switches, at the end of the day, these £22 will still be cheaper.
