Exclamation Euro Switch

Has any one done this! Purchased a euro light switch (the Headlight Switch for the right hand side of the handle bars) and used it for operating other lights.

It would save on trying to put a switch in another location and would look stock.

If any one has what is the cost of the switch (#61 317 650 742) and how hard was it to wire?

I have been thinking of doing it you can hook up two different sets of lights as it has two positions.

Yes, I purchased the Euro-Switch shortly after buying the bike. Shortly after buying the bike I was in Germany and purchsed it from a BMW dealer there. At the time (2001) the cost in Germany was $135, here it was $225. It has to be ordered from BMW since none of the dealers in the US seem to carry it in inventory.

I did not do the install, but had my local dealer do it when I had it in for service. It comes with the complete wiring harness. There is an off switch (bottom selection), headlight only (middle) and all lights (top). I had the dealer connect all my other lights to the top selection.

Thumbs up Euro Switch

Thanks Bruce
The cost is a little high but if it comes with all the wiring and relays that makes it a little better.

It might be worth looking into, it would really be nice if a US or Canadian company made one to fit.

Bruce look up "Phoenix Switch" in the search area and you should find the info you need. I believe it is called the "Phoenic" switch as it was originally on the R1200C

Hi Bruce , I did put a Euro-Switch on my 1995 R1100GS . I needed to a switch for some fog lights I mounted on it . I have the fog lights on a relay , and the relay is controlled by the Euro-Switch .

The Euro-Switch , if put in with out modification will give you no lights , parking lights , and all the lights ( I think ?? ..something like that ?). I set mine up so I can chose between no lights ,then the all the lights , and all the lights +the Fog lights .

I used the Euro-Switch , to keep the controls neat , so that it looked stock .That said , I think the Phoenix Switch may not be a bad chouse either . Hope this is of help ...patric ...

Euro switches

I believe the light switch is shared across the range and 2nd hand parts would be available from:

www.motorworks.co.uk

www.motobins.co.uk/

www.james-sherlock.co.uk/

Any problems with payment / shipping then contact me and we can work something out.
