WANTED: turn signal switch for '86 GL1200 Interstate

Postby RobH » Mon Apr 11, 2011 12:07 pm



Hi, Guys. I'm trying to find a working turn signal switch assembly (#35200-ML8-671) for my "new" 1986 GL1200 Interstate. The one on the bike has seen much better days; the hazard button sticks on, the push-release for the turn signals doesn't work, etc. There's no way I could afford a NOS assembly, so I'm hoping someone out there might have a reasonable alternative. Thanks so much! Rob

What size are your handlbars? I have a Honda set. Left and Right. Came off a 96 Honda. They fit a 1 inch bar. They are alumi. They don't have the hazard switch. But if I remembe right they will plug in.

Hey there! Love your moniker.... I hopefully have found a switch assy that will work, but I haven't tried it out yet. I really appreciate the reply, though! Is your assy off a '96 or a '86? Which model? The Honda parts list is pretty specific to what went with what, but you never know. Thanks, and ride safe! Rob

I was told they came off a 96 Magna. I pluged them in on my wing, but I 7/8's bars so they won't work for me. I wated to change mine so I would have a rocker kill switch rather than the twist switch. I think the rocker looks better, but thats just me. :lol:
