Waterproof push button switches

G'day all

I'm not happy with the switch set up of my driving lights. I'd like to get some waterproof switches similar to the ones on the bike already for the sound system. Anyone know where these can be sourced from please? Preferably reasonably priced, not with titanium or gold inserts if you know what I mean.....

I've had a look at the Hella and Narva switches in their on line cattle dogs but nothing really seems to stand out for me.

TIA and ride safe.

Regards

Search the 'hall of wisdom' for the R1200c phoenix switches and housing...waterproof, mounts to the right-side controls, similar to the sound system switches.
Probably $100-$125 for 2 switches and housing ( the switches are >$50 each by themselves )

"Autoswitch" is another option: mounts to existing high-beam or turn-signal-cancel wires, and uses a 'press and hold' or 'tap-tap' action on the corresponding switch to toggle your relay on/off.
No additional visible switches this way

Many thanks

for the feedback people, I'll look into those suckers and see if I can get the green light from the Minister of War and Finance.

Ride safe all
