Mystery switch

Postby Gunnar Már » Wed Aug 05, 2015 12:03 pm



Hi all out there

For the first time I was taking the seat of my 1992 aspy and found a small black switch :shock: I have no clue what it does and I couldn´t see it do anything, it´s vired to a connector that goes into the harness at the back. I can´t attach the photo I have but I will give it a try later
Best to all

The OEM wiring does not have a switch under the seat so that leaves a few possibilities.If its accessible with the seat on,it could be a hidden kill switch,accent light switch,mode switch for pattern select,power switch to disable a add on device like a lamp flasher or even a alarm system.
Does it tie into the bikes wiring?What color code wires do it attach to.

Possibily a "push to talk" for passenger to talk on CB radio? Seems I remember one on one of the 'Wings I've owned.

If it was for the CB it wouldn't be under the seat. Trace the wires and see where they go. Apparently if it is an off/on switch it might be something the PO put on and was never going to turn it off. I did that with the speaker separation knob on my 92 Aspencade. Once I set it where I wanted I stuffed it under the fairing pocket so it would never get changed.
