RE: Worst V Star modifications
Cool I was wondering where you routed it. I was thinking either the speedo wires or thru the top where the console piece is closest to the risers.

I just may do that if the marine grade switch doesn't do the trick. I have a hole in the console just below the speedo that I would have to fill, or replace the console.
I was looking at a switch on Ebay that was under 10.00. I thought it would make a nice funny addition to the bike. It's a boat switch for windshield wipers. I can just imagine the questions I would get when people see a wiper switch on a motorcycle.Biggrin


What like one of these :-) http://www.peerclear.com/products/kit Keep thinking of getting one but an concerned that the blade will just scratch up the wind-shield. :-(

@Ken-S , I was just going with the switch as a funny gesture, since I don't have a windshield.

Look on the bright side, a new rear seat is an opportunity to get a new girl friend to ride on it. There are some great pick up lines that could go with that.

So how about a pic of that high lo switch. I was just gonna wire my Hi-beam always on and get rid of the switch.
