954 pass light, or lack thereof

It hasn't caused me much grief (yeah right) but it's a constant annoyance that my blade doesn't have a pass light.

If you're not sure what I'm talking about, it's the button on the left control set that on contact flashes highbeam, usually helpful to give it a squeeze when you're about to overtake or warn an oncoming vehicle et cetera.

Why on Io doesn't the 954 have one? Whenever I want to give the lights a flash I have to move my grip and manually click the highbeam button.

Re: 954 pass light, or lack thereof

how strange - my UK 2002 version had this, but I know the 2003 model the switches had been changed so the main lights are always on.

Perhaps you can get some switches from a UK, Jap, or other country model and swap them (if the wirings the same that is!)

Re: 954 pass light, or lack thereof

I've got a switch to put the highbeam on permanently, the pass light only engages highbeam while you've got the button held down. Hence, handy for quick flashes.

Re: 954 pass light, or lack thereof

Thatís exactly what I mean, just a push button at the front of the LH switch gear. I canít see why they would do away with this in any country, but we certainly have them on UK bikes

Re: 954 pass light, or lack thereof

like I said, maybe the switch gear of a UK or Jap version would fit and give you that little button of pleasure!
