Hi guys,

I have been willing to get and Euro Switch for my ST 98 for some time now.
But they are pretty expensive, so i was checking ebay , and i bidded and won a lefthand switchgear from a 98 ST in london ( parted out ).

Was wondering if it will be a perfect fit ( like just a swap ) ?
Since my bike is an american model.

Thanks

Dan

plug and go.

By the way, how do you move the hoes around on a bike? :D

The euro switch is a switch wich permits you to turn off your lights while starting the bike.So the light dont suck up all the juice on the battery while starting.

Light switch?

I'm missing something, I'm sure, BUT... why does it matter whether a light switch goes on the right side or the left side? :think:

99 st4 light switch is on left. which is what I've always had on motorcycles,
i think the switch on the right would confuse me more than I already am.
Just seems to make more sense to have the switch on the left.
You have to twist the throttle and work the switch at the same time sounds like.

Where is the kill switch if the light switch is on the right?

Euro switch...

Dunno about left or right placement. I bought a high-flow fan from DesmoTimes and had a manual switch placed in the instrument surround (just below the instruments, on the horizontal black plastic piece). It's just a metal toggle with a flip-up cover - I switch it on at traffic lights on hot Dallas days. Works very well.

Anyway, since the Euro switch is only used at startup, not "on the road", I wonder if that might be a good place for it?

I bought mine from the owner of a 1098 who had it listed in a 1098 forum.

Motowheels has them listed in their on-line catalogue:

Howdo!!
I have fitted a UK spec ST3 motor and wiring to my Superlight. I have fitted an Odessey PC310 Battery and while it starts the bike no problem the lights are on all the time. This is the first UK bike I have had with permantly lit head light and tail light. Would fitting a handle bar light cluster from another Duke with the light ON/OFF switch be a straight fit?

Cheers Pablo

I recently bought the left hand K&S switch from CA Cycleworks. It's a good deal at $62 but it does not accept the fast idle lever on my '02 ST4s. The Euro switches shown on the Motowheels site don't show a fast idle lever either. Any ideas?

Jeff, the fast idle was removed on mine when I got it. Honestly, I don't think it's needed unless it's a really cold day then I just sit on the bike and crack the throttle a bit till it's warm. My 2 cents anyway.

Hmmm. That's where I got mine and I have the fast idle. I don't know what's different with the S version.
