installing a relay switch for all your lighting needs
This is the clock/volt meter/thermometer I added.

I'm not real happy with the way I had to do the wiring on this, I'm still thinking on what I can do with it. the unit is mounted with velcro over the cassette tape door. on the left and right bottom corners you can see the two little accent lights I stuck on. they light up blue and I'd prefer green to match the back light of the gauges.

yeah, the reddish color around the air vent is over spray that came through vent when painting the front of fairing, just haven't taken the time to clean it off yet. :oops: the right side is done though Tongue

How are you going to hold the unit in place, sticky back Velcro? Also, how will it take the bumps?

I do like the compact and neat switch panel and relay.
At which store did you find that creature.
The only stupid questions are the one's that are not asked.

Vic, it is mounted with the factory supplied brackets. I had to trim the left side mount so I could get it as close to left side as possible. due to the shape of the saddlebag, I couldn't get it as tight into the corner as I'd like, there is still a lot of waisted space but, I use that space to pack my frog-togs and first aid kit, gloves etc.
as far as bumps go... I was really surprised at how well it does, I have to hit a pretty hard bump to make it skip. this unit sells for $179 usd. at Best Buy. fairly easy to install and works through the Wing's radio system so I can use headset/intercom with no problem.

I like the switches Angela but are you really going to put radar and a depth sounder on your Wing? The radar might be handy. :lol:

In all seriousness Angela you should try contacting the manufacturer to see if they can supply custom labelling for the switches. Quite often that's not a big deal for them if you know what you want. They just punch it into their computer and out comes the custom strips just for you. Then you just apply apply them and they look like factory.
