I can help you something?
This is the closest I've found to the right Dims and IP rating for the buttons for the ICO. I have a TT vector just now, but a big boy ICO is on the list. I want to make it a combo with the roadbook toggle switch as well. I have a friend that can cut the metal for me. I can install and pot the switches. It's not that I'm against paying someone for their merch, but I want to know how to do it in case something needs to be fixed in the field.
The only thing you'll be fixing in the field is a picnic lunch and a nap
Is this... are we... flirting?
I just took my pants off......Yes, I guess
Be careful he might be....he told me he was in the Navy you know!

Ask Jeremy what instrument he played in the Marine corp band...... hint, it rhymes with boot "What makes the grass grow?" "Tempo, tempo, tempo!"
Marine corp band battle cry
I wish I knew how to quit you
but yeah, this still.
linkey no workie
was that the, linky worky thumbup, or the button worky thumbup? I spent probably 2 hours last night going to different results on digikey looking for buttons.
I am just not a fan of those little delicate ends on that thing. It can work, those just bug me.
I went searching again.
note the screw terminal. My personal favorite.
Apem buttons are of very good quality and they have a variety of sizes, colors, shapes etc. The have sand and water protection and to the extreme they sell silicon covers for the buttons
You can find some here http://export.farnell.com/jsp/search/browse.jsp?N=2012+203117&Ntk=gensearch&Ntt=apem&Ntx=mode+matchallpartial&No=0&getResults=true&appliedparametrics=true&locale=en_EX_DIRECTEXP&divisionLocale=en_EX&catalogId=&skipManufacturer=false&skipParametricAttributeId=&prevNValues=2012+203117&filtersHidden=false&appliedHidden=false&autoApply=false&originalQueryURL=%2Fjsp%2Fsearch%2Fbrowse.jsp%3FN%3D2012%2B203117%26Ntk%3Dgensearch%26Ntt%3Dapem%26Ntx%3Dmode%2Bmatchallpartial%26No%3D0%26getResults%3Dtrue%26appliedparametrics%3Dtrue%26locale%3Den_EX_DIRECTEXP%26divisionLocale%3Den_EX%26catalogId%3D%26skipManufacturer%3Dfalse%26skipParametricAttributeId%3D%26prevNValues%3D2012%2B203117
Browse for the buttons in the lower part of the page, some come with their own cabling which saves some time but it depends on what design you have in mind.
Avoid the ones with leds. They are fancy but (1) there is a reason for them and they are so bright you want to mask them before you break them and (2) you need a resistor for the led to work. Otherwise you are just left with a normal button and a destroyed led. It happened to a friend of mine
Make sure you get the correct size, they come in two sizes from what I have seen. The Touratech and the lot use the smallest ones. I think the Touratech ones are not plastic, not the button itself, the case of it, the black thingy... You know what I mean ...
Nice billet work MakS ... It would be nice to create one billet for using two ICO's / IMO's .
For those of you that have done this before, will this set-up be OK from a rider protection point of view for a 3 day rallye? I don't really want to fit a full fairing if I can help it. The rallye will take place in South Africa, longest stage 700km. Starts in the cold/wet Cape Town, ends in the hot Kalahari desert town of Upington.
Rider protection from what? Isn't it hot in RSA? When we rode long road Liaisons in cold winter Euryope in the Dakar, a fairing was nice. But I'd rather have airflow when it is hot. It is good to get the equipment's mass off the handlebars, so a frame mounted bracket has some advantages. But a fairing is only for looks and maybe to keep some sand out of your wiring.
I'm going to use the handlebar mounted brackets in the 7-day Tuareg Rallye. For me, simpler is better.
