    OEM Fog lamps for USA VFr1200x?

    Will the European LED Fog Lamps work on USA Vfr1200x?

    North American Honda ( Canada and USA) doesn't list Fog lamps on their websites as an accessory; just the light bar (cowl ornament).

    The last time I went to a Honda dealer in Massachusetts (31Mar2017) they were able to obtain several pieces of it. The part numbers were slightly different from the U.K. Honda part numbers.  Here is what USA Honda could get me :

    08V72-MGS-A30. LED Fog Lamp $ 363.99 ( is this one or two lamps?)
    08A00-MGH-640. Kit, sub harness $ 14.49 ( quartlet)

    There was also a Fog light attachment kit that the dealer could see but wasn't able to order. I don't know what it in included or if it's needed for the install.  It was $ tho, I can't remember the price I'll go back and get the part #. 

    In addition the dealer could get the Fog Lamp kit which was $800+ however I believe it comes with the light bar( cowl ornament) and I already have it.

      The dealer seemed to think the LED Fog Lamp were the same part # as the Honda CTX model. Not sure if the lights are the same as Europe's LED lamps.

    I need help, I can buy the LED lamps from a U.K. Dealer online. Not sure if they'll work or not. Is the wiring harness the some for all CT or vfr1200x models?

    I like the OEM look and having the OEM Fog Lamp on/off.

    Hi kwilson, i presume Honda like many other manufacturers wont put different wiring looms into the same bikes, so i would think that they would fit.
    good look kwilson.

    Actually different markets do sometimes get different harnesses.  There are different requirements for daytime running lights etc.  Not as common as it used to be, and it varies with manufacturers.  I did notice my front signals are illuminated all the time, which strikes me as unusual for a US bike.  I've had 1 or 2 over the years that do it, but it isn't common.  Something like that is a hard wire issue rather than software.

    Not corrected!  Just sometimes...  I expect the looms are the same on this beast.  Once I'm into a bit I'll know.   :152:

    The OEM switch arrived today.  1 week from order to ship and 8 business days in transit not bad.  Very nice piece.  So hopefully I will get the grips, lights and bars installed this weekend.  I'll need to dive into the harness to see how to make it all work but that's minor.  I figure a day and a half with all the bits I need to fit.

    The switch worked well.  Pulled switched power from the black/yellow.  The OEM switch Is a trigger for the relay.  I ran ground and battery power to the left panel and fitted the relay there.

    Not the cleanest wiring I've ever done but passable.

    So lighted switch and OEM grip heat is very clean install.

    Bars and hugger tomorrow.
