What do you use for an accessory switch? I have a set of halogen driving lights added on my wing, the switch is a basic illuminated rocker switch, just setting in the left pocket. I'd like to move it to the handlebars. (Doesn't need to be the same switch I currently use) The only switches for that I have really seen are the ones that go on over the clutch or brake reservoirs. Not sure I want to go that way, or really spend that much money. Not planning on adding anything else, a single switch would serve the purpose.
Any suggestions? Thanks.

Forgot to add, this is on a 1500, 1998

Honda installed factory fitted light switches to a lot of their export models. It would be a neat way of adding a switch as the switch block mountings are all the same. I imagine finding one might be hard but you could get lucky in the breakers.

That would be cool, and just what I'm looking for. I wonder how a guy would go about finding one of those.
Thanks

You could try posting in the 'for sale/wanted' section here using the picture I posted. I'll have a look round the UK sites. I once get a whole right hand side switch block from a bike breakers yard and it was pretty cheap.

Lights

Not sure what wattage (eh ?) your driving lights are but I would think about using a relay to prevent the switch burning out.

Switches

Some ideas.. 4 on the left panel and 3 on the right handle bar. Most of the lights on GL1500 are LED and so draw very little current.
