Part: Honda CB350 / CB360 / CB450 / CB500 / CB550 Headlight 3 Way (on/off/on) Switch with Dust Boot
Why You Need This: This industrious 3 way throw (on/off/on) toggle switch with a dust boot is for a headlight modification. Inspired by old BMW headlight controls from the 1960's, this modification will work on any Honda CL / CB350, CL / CJ / CB360, CL / CB450, CB500T, CB500F, CB550. The modification allows you to toggle your headlight on and off if your bike is not equipped with a factory right handle bar on off switch. The factory switch is often broken or missing on many bikes or perhaps you are going for a simplified wiring set up for a custom build. The purpose of the mod is to have the headlight off when starting to give maximum power to the ignition coils and makes the bike easier to start (necessary if you are using the electric starter removal kit or running a small battery). Also this is a must if you are looking to do a simplified wiring harness. The switch includes a water proof dust boot to keep the elements out. This three way (on/off/on) toggle switch works great with our halogen H4 headlight bucket kit.
Installation Tip: Drill a hole in your headlight bucket and wire this switch in line with the ground wire coming off the headlight socket. We always suggest soldering all connections versus automotive style crimp connectors. We wire it up where the middle is off, and the other throws are low and high beams.
