I have been reading a few posts on here around the subject of switches and looking at switch gear on ebay as I am currently in the process of fitting new lights and indicators to my 2007 WR450.
I would like to install some good quality switches and it has been suggested that I use some second hand road bike switches. I notice that a few on here have used the Yamaha R6 switch gear with success.
I have a few questions, if any of you can answer even some of them then that would be very helpful as I need to make sure I get the right gear before I start this job.
1. Is R6 switch gear still considered the best option as I have seen others mention the WR250R. Obviously the switches that have the narrowest profile to avoid interference with the other controls would be best.
2. Did the switch gear on the R6 change much through the years? I saw some differences and wondered which year was perhaps the best for functionality and fit?
3. I saw two sets of left hand side R6 switches from the same year, one had a hazard light on and the other didn't. Is it possible to wire up the hazard button as well as the indicators and is this a big task. It might make me decide on which of the two to go for.
4. I also read a post where someone fitted a right hand side R6 switch but found that the kill and run switch wasn't able to work as it works differently in the circuit to the stock one. Is this sortable to use the R6 right hand side kill switch?
