reverse switch location

Post by jdn40 »



I'm adding a reverse camera . it needs to be wired to the reverse switch ( looking for a blue/white wire ) where is the switch ? I've looked thru the DIY section and didn't see anything . normally I wouldn't use a camera but i have a trike .

It's just to the rear of the neutral lever, is actuated by the lever.

You can see it here: viewtopic.php?t=32117

There's actually two - one on either side. One is activated directly by the lever, the other is a plunger switch activated by mechanism in the reverse gearing. The easier one to locate and use is the one on the left side, activated by the lever.
