    Honda foglight switch for aftermarket LED auxiliary lights

    As the title

    You used to be able to buy the 'fog-light' switch as a solo item before Honda started selling the OEM foglight set-up as a package then miraculously the option to buy 'just a switch' disappeared

    I still own an Africa twin which i have added aftermarket LED auxiliary lights to as well as the CT, i got a perfectly acceptable wp switch put on the AT after seeing the 'square shaped' OEM AT switch on Rugged Roads website for £26 which i thought was a bit steep.

    Well i am fitting some auxiliary lights to the CT now and needed to sort a switch out to have them controlled seperately from the Headlamps  so thought back to the AT switch i had seen on RR website.

    08V04-MJP-G50A is the part number so i ordered one from NWMD (russ) and got it today for £15  :038:

    When i got home i tried it for a fit on my CT and sure enough it fits exactly as it should and looks right at home next to the 'torque control' button on the LHS inner panel mounting.

    It might be the exact same part they use in the kit but the dealers don't have access to individual part numbers, they can only look up the complete LED lighting package

    How easy is it to remove the blank and fit that Oem switch..
    I’m always worried that I break flimsy plastic bits by not knowing the way to get access into that little panel
    Any tips
    Thanks

    You can't 'break' anything

    The blank is held in place by 2 x screws at diagonally opposite corners on the underside of the panel. Just undo the screws the blank fall out and then put the switch in the same place using the same screws into the same holes

    OEM CT switch 08332-mgs-p00, but AT one is cheaper. Does it fit staright without any modifications to the switch or panel (except connector ofcourse)?

    Well because i couldn't buy a CT switch from Honda i do not know the answer to your question Juggler, all i CAN say is it fits perfectly into the panel

    i also don't have the extra loom on my bike so the OEM connecter was chopped off to wire it through a 30amp relay

    This number you supplied for the CT switch might be usefull, i will ask my friendly dealer  :037:

    I found the switch at a parts retailer in England, there was also a site in Spain it came up on.  They seem to be non existent for the most part.  Mine was 20 lds? I think.  Cost me as much to ship it across the pond.  In the end though the fully integrated look is excellent.  Although behind the panel the wiring looks like crap.  The wiring on my GS looked pretty and the switch like crap.

    Good to know there is an alternate switch out there.

    I like this better.  Nice thing was one of the LED's died and it was easy to swap out!  Well the swap was nice not the dying.  But hey it had 60K miles over 8 years and I had a second set from another bike.  All was good...  :063:

    Good tip scotsy!

    I'm actually thinking to add some new aftermarket LED fog-lights (GIVI S320) and i didn't remember about the switch item. Since my Honda dealer sells this GIVI lights, i'm going to ask them about this switch button.
