Fitting headlight on/off switch

Postby Fab » Mon Aug 27, 2012 2:31 pm

I have an `82 GL1100 Standard that is a US import. It has the lights coming on with the ignition. I want to ride with the lights off.Is it possible to fit a UK model right hand switch gear with a lights on/off switch to enable this, or will I have to modify the wiring loom?

I don't see why not.I'd get the wiring diagram first so you can identify the wires.There's just the one feed wire from the start button. that would go to the lamp kill switch.
