Not sure whether you can buy the harness on its own, if you can though, I would buy it, having it will save a load of hassle.

Hi,
Yes , you can buy a quartet sub harness on its own which connects to a jack plug behind the side cover just underneath where the fog light switch mounts, Its pricy for what it does, ( the switch is also stupid expensive) Cox Honda on here will help you with ordering it.

I agree with you on the cheaper bit, but we don't know the electrical skills of the OP, if he is decent, then I would agree, make you own. For me it was the time factor, I can do it, but by the time I had got all the connectors together, then the wire, then the heat shrink, I decided the cash for the factory loom was worth my time alone. Then there is this aspect, if someone does make their own and god forbid gets it wrong, then the price of a loom for this, will seem buttons in comparison to a loom repair. As webster rightly says, you can make your own, but my advice would be, be honest with yourself around your electrical skills, before you do.

I have the GIVI 310s fitted . . . they were wired by dealer mech with the HONDA switch fitted instead of the GIVI switch . . .the cost of the switch was around £20 . . .the wiring harness is supplied with the GIVI lamps, and no problems !
