As I want to run 2 powerlets so I don't want to use those holes for switches, and the push button swiches I ordered aren't two way (high and low). Or do you know a source for a two way switch that will fit in the "Switch holes" on the HDB set-up.
Also not sure where to get LED's to fit in the indicator light holes anybody have a source for them? Never wired a diode directly, do they just wire up in series with a hot lead?
You may have seen a round 3-way rocker switch (hi/off/lo) that fits into the HDB switch hole, very clean and good looking switch. Paul does indeed need to pre-drill for that switch style. This round switch comes in many warmer kits, vs the more common toggle bar type. The common bar type doesn't need to be pre-drilled by Paul. Here's a linky
to a kit with the round switch.
I ran hot grips for years, work great, but they're pretty hard on the hands during long multi-day rides.
