You could just go through the fuse box, and on my XLRM I'm probably going that route.  I like the buss bars to organize the circuits and to give nice clean switch point for all power.  On the 7fitty, the buss bars are fed through the on/off switch.

No more than any other air-cooled motorcycle built in the 70s with two petcocks.

Busted!
But only one point!

Haha.  The XS500 tank on my CB750 has two petcocks.

Touché.

Two turn-signal switches, then? Or was BMW switchgear relatively sane in the 70's?

Yeah, you need Kawasaki or Yamaha parts and bar controls to mess with the purists.

Yeah the purist are an odd bunch with BMW. They talk about original paint and pinstripes and suspect condition on fugly styled bikes. Then whip an obscene price on a $2500 bike and talk about how the plastic POS mirrors are OEM.

My buddy AL was old, and he was a BMW guy, but far from a purist. He rode a few states over to Illinois on his 78 for a BMW show (he was probably in his late 60's at the time). When he got there he got flamed for having excel rims laced and an aftermarket exhausted mounted. They claimed that he "ruined a perfectly good BMW". He said he was there for 20 minutes before he turned around an came home lol sounds like a fun bunch of guys to hang with.
