New handlebar switches
« on: April 18, 2015, 06:37:29 AM »
Hi again
I did change all handlebar swiches and levers. Cluch works great, brake pump as well, so now time for electrical issues. But, as I have great skills to crew many things, my previous post show that, first of all will ask all of you about suggestions, about how to connect handlebar switches to existing harnes.
So the right swich is from suzuki sv650 and diagram below (pdf file you need to download):
see attachment

The left swich comes from Hayabusa older version with manual.choke:
see attachnet.

I do also include shorcuts for cable colours:
see attachment

If someone knowledgable have few minutes and can advice how to connect all together that would be fine. It also can be a future help for all that wants to change oem handlebar switches.
Of course I can do myself (at least I guess I could) but to avoid brokes fuses, fire, wasting hours and nervous :dunno2: I'd rather get some info from you guys.

Thanks in advance

So the right switch (Suzuki SV650) is only for Lights (High/Low & Off/On) and Engine (Start/Stop) and you are wiring the turn signals and horn to the left (Hayabusa) switch?

Here are the pictures of both handlebar switches. Right switch is engine start and hazard. Will not be position light switch as the motorycle will be fire up with lights on all the time. That is the idea.

Piotr...

Perhaps this wiring diagram link will help you out at http://www.verrill.com/moto/k75/images/k75_wiring.gif . Hope this is OK with the moderators... There should not be a great deal of difficulty modifying the wiring, but this is sort of unusual, marrying a Suzuki (or two) to a BMW... Good Luck!!!

Piotr,  The Kill switch, horn switch, and start switch should be straightforward.  You could get the hazard function to work possibly although that is the least of your signalling worries.  I have no idea how you're going to accomplish turn signals.  You can't marry the Japanese philosophy of a manual turn signal switch with the BMW's; you'll need to devise a way to get three momentary push buttons out of those hand controls. You're treading in unknown territory and will have interesting challenges getting this to work.  Best of luck.

And all done. It was easy thanks to member DAI who did for me all wiring changes. You can close your eyes and do all chnges. In fact it takes about 2-3 hours to swich all wires to the jap system of handlebar switches. Works like a charm.
Attached diagram is priceless help for me and all of you who decide to change switches.
