Spotlight switch, adapted by customer, on his 1200 LC
« on: October 15, 2014, 10:02:45 am »
Customer of ours took a spotlight switch that we sell for the 650/700/800 twins, as well as that fits the 1200 GS/A (oil cooled) and he MODIFIED it to fit on his 1200 L.C.

Came out well, I think.
Cheers

And the spots on the GSW have their own switch already?  ??? ???

Maybe he uses the switch for something other than the spot?

For a second, bright set of spots, that need their own switch.

Remember, he who has the most switches, wins!  :biggrin:
