I have an 04'B and have placed Motolights on the front caliper mounts. Need suggestions for an easily accessible place to mount a switch to operate the lights. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Can you just use an HD Auxiliary switch and housing? I haven't done the moto lights per se, but have done a couple electrical acessories, and IMO nothing looks as clean as the switch housings they make to match the OEM switches on your bars.

Curious as to where on the bars you would place. I have those HD OEM switches on my Road Glide and I think those are the same ones you are referring to.
I think that I might put a toggle or some kind of switch on the left side of the bike up front near where the frame comes together. It looks like it has a natural void there already. Just want a really clean install and application.
Thanks for answering, any other ideas are greatly appreciated.

I have Motolights on my 06D. I had the switch placed in an out of the way place where it's protected from the sun and the elements. Check out the pics, good luck!

It looks as though you have a small fairing. I don't have anything like that on my bike. Please tell if I am correct in identifying what it is I saw on yr pics.
Thanks for your input.

I'm sorry Jim, you are right, I do have a small fairing or wind screen on my bike. (all of the "D" series have them) When I had the lights installed the tech asked me where I wanted the switch and my buddy and I picked out the spot where it is now. It is out of the way, nicely concealed and right there when I need it to turn the lights on. Since you don't have this screen, how about finding a spot along the frame on whichever side you feel more comfortable with?

PM Ghost for a picture. He put the switch on the underside of the instrument clamshell, and it is hidden, but he uses it easily. Another idea is to wire in a relay, and mount a small push putton switch.

How about on your horn cover?

I know the H-D driving lights that mount on the crash bar use a little rubber button that mounts to the left control clamp. It's barely noticeable and easily accesible (don't have to take your hand off the grip to activate it).
