You can buy the subject from either Gold Wing Stuff or Cycle Max.

What happens to the switch that causes the replacement?

Where your switches keep burning out, you may want to upgrade and replace it one that has an inline fuze built in to see if that works. It maybe be easier/cheaper to replace the fuze vice replacing the whole switch. Both of the vendors previously mentioned carry the upgraded switches.

Turns out ...the dealer where I purchased the bike and had the fog lights added in the purchase as an option...didn't bother to put the link with the relay ion between the swtch and the harnes....it clearly shows this like on the wireing diagram for the OEM light system and any aftermarket system I can find....isn't that special....and now the best part.....you can't order this link
/relay separately...it only comes with the entire light system.

thanks for all the help

Maybe these adapters will resolve your issues.

Ok so newbie has a question..... on my 05 1800, that plastic cowling in front of the engine, there are two cut-outs for the fog lights I assume?? What is involved in rigging the fog lights?? how much trouble, money, where does the switch mount? etc. Just got my 05 and really would like the extra light down that low but I've only seen $300-400 options for the lights and then not sure how to mount? anybody got a thread for this purpose???

thanks for the patience with the new guy.

ride on. :)
