Don't know where you can get the replacement, But when you do, place it on the other (left) side. Much safer to use while riding!

If no luck, stop by a Radio Shack. I have seen many switches there(like the heated) and they may have one that will work for you.

Just out of curiosity why do you need to replace the switch? If it's missing that's a no brainer, but if it's due to operation of the switch I feel the need to mention that it is a "Center" off type swith. In other words, when you rock it forward it is on Hi, and when you rock it back it is on Low. The only time it is off is when it is in the center position.

I only bring this up because many of us here found that out the hard way. Who reads instructions before riding a Bike anyway? In fact one of our NW members has a favorite tale about how his wife would not quit complaining about how hot the seat was on one of their first summer rides. He told her it was off, only to find out later that it was in the High position!

Just in case,

John

I've got a spare. Same as the heated grip switch.
I was able to fix my old one so if you can find a price we can make a deal.

I do have a new one. OEM, in the package................
It has a picture of the handgrip on it because the switches are both the same, but my dealer ordered this one for me and meantime I fixed the old one........( replaced the spring)........................................... .............
You'll have to investigate the orientation, low/high, front/rear.
Seems I paid about $37.00 for it..............I know it was way too overpriced so I'm fairly certain that's it................................................ ................
How about $20 and I'll pay to send it ?
