Cleaning bars-Looking for switches
« on: Oct 13, 2017, 06:30:23 »
Hey guys!

So on my next build (XS750) I will go down the clean bars route.Since the motogadget solution is too expensive for me (and I see no sense in it), I will use simplified bar switches like these from Blitz motorcycles.

I would use them as follows:

Left bar Blitz control:
Toggle switch: 3 position Left-Off-On
Push button: Horn

Right bar Blitz control:
Toggle Switch:2 position Hi-Low Headlight
Push button: Starter button

Here´s the problem: In Austria we need to have the headlight flasher too and I dont know where to integrate that on these switches...
Do you have an appealing alternative to the Blitz switches?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Ryan
The modern motorcycle company has a clean press button that would do the job, and matches the style.

You can just wire it in parallel to the high beam circuit.
Hope it is of help.

Thank you Tim!

Just shot them a message, since this single button is not to be found in the "Europe" part of their website.
These switches are amazing and for a good price!

Did you use them on your XS750?

Hope they come back to me soon.

Just checked out my stock bar controls....its a NIGHTMARE:

Left Control:

Hi/Low>>>>???

Pass>>>>Extra Single Button (Modern Motorcycle Switch)

Turn Signals >>>>TOGGLE (3 Positions) (Modern Motorcycle Switch)

Horn>>>>push button (Modern Motorcycle Switch)

Right Control:

Start>>>push button (Modern Motorcycle Switch)

Lights On/Off>>>>hardwired...light always stays on with ignition

Kill Switch (3 Positions)>>>TOGGLE (3 Positions) (Modern Motorcycle Switch)

how can I deal with the left hand control problem?
HI/LOW will need a switch too...

Thanks in advance!

Hmmmm

I´m thinking about using 3 of these switches (with one toggle and one push button).

So on the left I would mount 2 switches:
2x toggle 2x push button

Left Control:

Hi/Low>>>>TOGGLE (3 Positions) (Modern Motorcycle Switch)

Pass>>>>push button (Modern Motorcycle Switch)

Turn Signals >>>>TOGGLE (3 Positions) (Modern Motorcycle Switch)

Horn>>>>push button (Modern Motorcycle Switch)


On the Right 1 switch:
Right Control:

Start>>>push button (Modern Motorcycle Switch)

Lights On/Off>>>>hardwired...light always stays on with ignition

Kill Switch (3 Positions)>>>TOGGLE (3 Positions) (Modern Motorcycle Switch)

The question is:
Will I have enough space to fit these 2 switches without the inner part touching against each other?
So many holes in a bar, will the bar collapse  :)?

Looks like this might be more clutter than the oem setup! I'd like to go the clean route also but most of these like motogadget have momentary switches that need a secondary latching switch. Give me the m-button with latching switches and I'm on it!

I doubt they will fit if you plan on mounting them on top of eachother. They would need to be side to side.

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

Might be an option?

^ that's a good idea.
Also what does the pass switch do? Kick in the rocket boosters?

Nvm I looked, unless it's required over there I'd toss that function.
