I have one of those 4 rocker switch covers on my clutch master cycliner. No clue what the switches do No mention if it the ownners manual so I assume its an aftermarket acessory.What would they be switching.

Yep they are aftermarket add ons....not sure what they would do. Does you wing have any extra lights added? You may just have to try them one at a time and see what happens.....

Hopefully one is not an ejection seat switch.....LOL.

I had a double one on the brake side - they were turning on extra lights. I did notice that they were not wired into any relays - the lights were powered off the accessory circuit on the fuse box - not a good idea. If they are powering accessories, make sure they are in a fused circuit and if they are high power items like lights, they should be turning on a relay that then powers the lights directly from the battery. This will help keep factory wiring and plugs from overheating and causing problems as was the case with my Aspy.

Wilf if you have the time you could trace the wires from each switch to where they end. First as mentioned turn them on one @ a time. Also I have a gang block on mine just now but they are not hooked up to anything @ this moment in a couple of days I won't beable to say that. The PO may have installed the block but didn't get around to adding extra accessories. Good luck my friend. Angela:waving:

A riding friend has one on his Shadow. Goes between master cylinder and the master cylinders top. Controls his aux lights on the front. 3 of 4 switches are not used on his bike.

They usually work aftermarket lights Wilf. Spot lights, fog lights etc. Some owners fit the switch bank for looks only and don't connect them to anything.

They are very popular for extra lighting Wilf. A lot of us this side of the pond use them for switching on/off accessory light bars, LED lights under the Wing etc.
