Carling Contura Switches (Trophy Heated Grip)
Nice switches but kinda pricey.
I am adding heated grips to my 02 Trophy. Wanted to keep the factory look, i.e. the rocker switch.
For those that want to know. The factory switch is a Carling SPDT with a Contura II soft rubber Actuator. Which starts with the part V6DA, which means it is a on-off-on non lighted switch.
Being as I am adding some switched accessories, I thought the switches should look alike. Yet be identifiable as to what they do.
For the grip switch I am reusing the existing rocker(actuator) and lighting it. With a new Carling switch #V1D2GHNB-00000-000. (all those zeros mean is that it comes with no rocker) This will illuminate the grip symbol(glow green) on the rocker when wired. It will also have an amber glow when the switch is activated.
I will be adding three other switches to the left panel. One for the fan over-ride, another for aux lighting and a last to cut out the HID lights while starting and idling.
I will post pics and part #s as I go. This ought to be a bit fun for me...
