    Lights Again

    Hi all,

    Does any one know if the Fog Light switch is still available on its own?
    Think i read somewhere it was only available as a bundle or some such.

    Plan to get some Denali spot lights stuck on for visibility and ideally would like to use the space provided to put the switch.

    Also the lights come with a harness,  would i still need to get the quartet Honda one? Or would it be recommended to use it in case of wanting to add more electrical things later on.

    Have a mechanic chap who can put em on just want to make sure he has everything to make the best job of it.

    Thanks Chaps/ladies if applicable.

    regards Doug in Sutton, surrey.

    If you have the OEM Heated grips then you already have the harness required. Search through the forums as the part number for the switch is there somewhere. :158:

     A month ago I tried to buy the switch on a Honda dealer but now they only sell the whole kit (lights and switch)...

    It was in Portugal but most probably it's the same everywhere...

    If you want good visibility don't bother with Denali get yourself a pair of Komi led lights off eBay they are outstanding and cheaper

    Denalis are very good- throw a very long beam especially if you use the higher power bulbs supplied with them

    I had the HONDA switch fitted to operate my GIVI spotlamps. Fitted by dealer and the switch was ordered as separate part at approx.  £20 I remember.

    Hi Geoff

    When did you order the switch? If it was recently can you give me the contact so I can order one as well?

    Thanks

    I had it fitted while my bike was in for service last May 2016. The dealer ordered the switch and I fitted lights to my bike and during the service they wired the lights and fitted switch in panel on left next to the TC switch. I see you are not in UK but just check if HONDA dealer where you are can order the part. Good luck.
