Euro Light Switch for an '08 LT

I've used Euro switches for years on my RTs and LTs but my dealer tells me that there are no Euro Switches avail for '08 LTs. Bummer. I "searched" for info on this issue but found nothing. Sorry if I've overlooked the answer.

I can understand that the HID start-up might be a switch concern, and that the power center stand control might make the rt. hand control way too complicated but really!

Are there sources outside of the primary factory parts lists that show Euro switches? I have heard of countries that do not suport the "always on" headlight reqmnts, and in fact discourage daytime lamp illumination. How do LT riders manage headlights in those places?

Anybody had any success finding a Euro Switch for a late model LT?

Japan used to have a headlight off rule when at stoplights. Also I caught hell for turning on a headlight during the day on a scooter. This was however a long time ago.... 1965. Things may have changed.
