I'm gonna guess it's a cigarette lighter, since that's what the ad says :roll: ,
Here is an aftermarket cigarette lighter port taken from a 1981 Honda Goldwing GL1100. It is in good used condition and ready to install.
What do I win :?:

I think the ad is wrong...
It is the emergency flasher switch - I believe....
What happens when you pull or push on yours...?

I agree. I was trying to be funny!
I've seen many ads that don't agree w/device pictured. Internet is a dangerous place :roll:

From the sysbols on the knob, it appears to be the switch for 4-way flashers?

It is 4 ways. I tried it and they work. I guess I did not wait long enough the first time.

I was hoping it was an ejector seat switch for the passenger if they have to pee before the next gas stop again. I need one of those.
