Some British bikes used to have the headlight switch on the headlight, itself.

Might be an option?

Sonreir!Good idea!Saves clutter on the bars...

It effin annoys me, we have so strong regulations here that we need to have all the functions available even when modified...
SONIC unfortunately I need to keep that function.

Well that sucks.
Do people use it over there?
If someone flashed their highs before passing where I live everyone would be very confused and annoyed.

Nope not really.Its actually quite a no-go.
Normally people in fat BMW use it when they pull u speeding behind you on the Autobahn  ;D

As for the controls I think I found a solution now!

I will use:

LEFT: 1 Double Switch (1 toggle+1 push button) + 1 Single Push button (both Modern Motorcycle)

1 Toggle: Left Blinker/Off/Right Blinker
1 Push Button: Horn

1 Single Push Button:Headlight flasher (Pass)

RIGHT: 1 Double Switch (1 toggle+1 push button) + 1 Single Toggle Switch (both Modern Motorcycle)

1 Toggle: Kill Engine/Run/Kill Engine
1 Push Button: Starter -->>RELAIS!

1 Single Toggle Switch:HI/LOW Light

Light On/Off will be placed in the headlight bucket!

Hope I didnt forget anything.
I already made a tape mockup of the switches...It will be quite long but somehow I like the look and I reach it pretty easily with my thumb on both sides.
Now I will order a clutch lever assembly to see how this will work.

I have a question for you guys!

I want to buy a nice gas grip for my XS750 project and I just dont know how I can calculate the right one...
How do I know that a gas grip will work on my single pull triple carb setup?

Stroke on this one is:
max. 46 mm
- 36mm at 80 turning angle

Thanks in advance!

Motogadget only makes sense if youre making a new harness, in which case it makes everything really simple! I think having a lot of buttons in a row can be hard to control with gloves on, but thats just my idea.. about the gas grip, i used a speed throttle first, and it was way too heavy with the spring action, reverted to normal throttle and even bent the return spring a bit to give a softer throttle. Works well now.

Thanks data,I will check when all the components are installed (clutch+gas grip)..this will change the length again for my thumb.
The two buttons most apart should be the stuff I never use when the bike is in motion.

How did you calculate if youre gasgrip has enough stroke?
Or is it just a question of the length of the gas cable?

thanks!

No calculations, but it opens fully without having to pull twice
