So, I bought a set (Right and Left) EMGO Universal Handlebar Switches from the great folks at Cognito Moto for a project. I was not able to find any kind of wiring diagram for them. So, out of frustration I sat down and figured it out on my own and figured I'd share my findings. Hopefully, it will be useful to someone.

Here are the switches I'm referring to:

Another thank you!

What did you use the pass wire for? On my 92 CB750, we don't have a button for that. Did you just wire it into your headlight somehow? Right now it does nothing, but would be nice for it to.

I see that on the links, the wire colors are listed. Maybe that's a recent update to Cognito's site.
