Howdy all,

I'm looking at swapping my OEM ignition switch to the one used up to 1976 as it seems much easier to relocate.

I know the earlier switches were a 4 wire and mine is a 5 wire. Does anyone know how the wiring from 5:4 would work?

Also, and recommendations on a ready made bracket to relocate the switch off of the upper triple tree?

I think the CB550 just doubled up on the brown wires. Swapping over to a four wire should be pretty easy. All the wires should match by color.

Excellent; thanks for the insight.

Been wanting to move that OEM switch since the day I bought the bike.
