Spot lights stays on after engine switched off
« on: April 30, 2018, 02:37:57 pm »
So I fitted  my spots on 1200 GS LC.
Wired it to the auxiliary plug. Looks great.
Problem is, it stays on for a few minutes after I switch the engine off.
Is it good or bad?
Erg bederf!

It's standard
My 07 model does the same.
Solo travellers should not be considered unsociable, they are expressing their independence until they choose to do otherwise.

Why did you wire it to the aux socket?  If you wire it to the headlight circuit itbey will go on and off with the headlight.
