I have a 06 WR450 that I installed a Baja Design DS kit, I have gone through 2 of the multi function switches. The problem I am having is with the hi/low button not working all the time. Sometimes I really have to **ck with it to get it to switch. I thought maybe the first switch was bad so I bought another one and get the same issues. Has anyone else had this problem, and if so what is the work around?
yes i have had the same problem as you. I'm considering a KTM switch or maybe even a wr250x switch. I just haven't had the chance to look into them. you can get other switches.

As is often the case, they came up with a great idea, but their execution was compromised due to their choice of cheesy hardware components. It's really a shame.

thanks for the replies, I guess I need to start hunting down a switch that can take off road riding. I don't mind a few extra bucks for something that will work correctly, BD sould take a look and have it redesigned, although I sure they are just buying from a 3rd party instead of having thier own made.
Their first generation switches had some major issues....
- Ball bearing rolling on flat soldered contact would wear it thin, and break
- slide switch wouldn't take a hit from body or ??, when crashed.
We just had one go bad this weekend, and had to push a zip-tie into the slide portion for it to make "on" contact. Otherwise the bike wouldn't start.
They've come out with a sturdier design if I remember right... have you checked with them (or did I miss that part)?
