Question Light Switch on right handlebar (for optional lights)

I see the switch for optional lights but where does this go? Is there a hidden plug somewhere to tap into for adding lights (LEDs, etc)?

That would be for the passing lamps option. I have them on my bike and used this switch to turn them on/off.

Thanks. So I'm guessing it terminates somewhere near the headlamp?

There is a white plug in the headlight bucket (see image below). You can wire into the dummy plug to hook up any light. Add a blade fuse to your wires to prevent total melt down (just in case - it has happened to others). The Auxiliary switch on the right side of the handlebars controls the power.

Be sure to add the mentioned blade fuse.
Many of us have had the meltdown

Found the plug but no power going to it. Anyone know if it's hot when switch is on? Anything special I need to do?

Try it with the bike running, not just with the switch turned on.

Yep, that's exactly what it was. With engine running, all lamps (and accessory switch) have power. Once bike is running, you can turn it off with switch on right handle bar and all lights will remain lit.

BTW the plug is behind the metal plate in the headlamp housing. If anyone ever needs to get in there, just remove the 2 bolts holding the plate in place and there's the plug, nicely hidden!

Thanks for the reply! Very much appreciated!
