wondering if triumph makes a different light switch,for european bikes,with an on off switch for headlights. i also have a klr 650, and have installed a european lightswitch,it looks the same as on my 06 sprint except for the on off switch.you can see a "hump" where the on off switch would be on the sprint lightswitch.i would like to have option to cut lights off .

The UK and Australian models have the on/off switch combo. Give yourself and intro so we know to whom we are addressing. How is that for posh?? :D

There was talk a few years ago about making day riding lights compulsory in the EEC.
The law never went past the discussion stage but pretty much all the manufacturers pre-empted the decision and removed the light switches from their bikes.
Who knows, maybe they thought it made a 180mph Sportsbike look safe. When we all know it's the Big Nut on the end of the bars that decides if it's safe.

Hi,
welcome to the forum :)

AFAIK lights have to be switched on permanently due to an EU Commission instruction which was published 2-3 years ago.

If You want to change switches with lights on/off possibility You should search an old type ones (before 2005).
