    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:lol3

    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.

    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 :deal

    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 :evil 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 :evil:evil

    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 :evil ...


    Nice billet work MakS ... It would be nice to create one billet for using two ICO's / IMO's .

    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.

    fun fun
