PostSubject: UNDERSEAT LIGHT SWITCH   Sun Mar 08, 2009 7:24 pm

Iv'e just got my SW and thought I might set about fitting a cutout switch to the underseat light to prevent any unwanted battery drain.My previous Piaggio X9 500 had a conveniently placed sprung cutout switch just under the front end of the seat and upon initial inspection it looks a if one of these could be wired in to the SW and located somewhere in the same area.
I'd be delighted to hear if anyone has successfully fitted a similar switch.
Thanks.


Ive just realised what a daft comment I've just posted and can't imagine what I can have been thinking of! Of course the light must go out when the seat has closed and what I really intended to say was how to cut the light off when the seat is raised as I want to fit a 12v battery trickle charging socket somewhere in the underseat compartment.It could be the seat might not close properly over the cables to the charger when its plugged in.
Has anyone fitted a socket like this on an SW?

Here is a link to the discussion on this forum.

http://www.silverwing600.com/silver-wing-accessories-modifications-f5/interior-light-with-manual-switch-t259.htm

There have been numerous discussions about this on a couple of SilverWing forums. Long story short - the Acura Integra part fits with little or no modification. The old part pops out with a bit of leverage applied. Unplug the harness from the old light and plug in the new part. Pop the new light back into the now empty hole. Be certain to turn the light off or you have not really accomplished much (voice of experience).

Now I've taken the plunge and have installed the switched light, but an LED flashlight stored in either glove box is far more practical and less likely to drain the SWing battery.

Yes thanks jdeereanton. I found the instructions about the light and think I'll keep it simple by removing the bulb and uses flashlight.I do want to fit a 12v output/charging socket as I suggested so I welcome any info from any one with any suggestions or may have fitted one to their own Swing.Should'nt be a difficult job a will have to investigate where to locate it.

This is "Old Dave" in Western Nebraska....I installed the replacement light in my trunk and like it very much. It makes the light, with a switch, nice to use as you can turn it on and off as you please. I keep a battery tender on mine when I park it for a couple of days so can turn off the light and keep the seat unlatched. I also have a very small light on my key chain about the size of a nickle that puts out a lot of light that I can use as well. Anyway do as you wish but I like the fact that my light is functional and I don't have to remove the bulb any more...
Again thanks to every one for their suggestions etc on the Forums. They help and make your Swings even more fun to own and operate.....Have fun!

Anyone reading my last two posts would think I've never read my owners instruction manual.You're dead right I had'nt up to now!Needless to say there's an auxuliary socket in the left front compartment so both problems solved without even getting a screwdriver out. study

Thanks for all the helpful comments anyway chaps.

Ahh yes! The bikes for everywhere but the USA (maybe North America) do not get that little gem from the factory.

I'd encourage everyone to read the owner's manual. It is a plethora of information. Most questions that folks have about the operation of their bike are answered within those pages. Consider also a shop manual if you can find one. Don't purchase a plagarized copy off of e-bay go to www.helminc.com and for a paltry sum you can have the genuine article. Or ask in the wanted section of forums there may be someone willing to part with one.

Its an old thread, I know, but i found this forum today.

To prevent dead battery caused by the trunk light I've placed a LED in the left back turn signal which lit when the trunk lite is on. I choosed this place, cause its the last wich I see leaving my garage.

I've recently spoken to a friend of mine who traded in his silverwing for a late model goldwing.
When he opened the trunk that is right behind the seat, low and behold the same light that the acura integra uses...the one we have been replacing our light with... is right there.

If anyone feels like doing the research, it would be nice to find the part number for the Honda goldwing light with switch, and see if the part price is similar. This way going forward we could direct people to get the switch at their local Honda motorcycle dealer instead of searching for what I'm sure is an increasingly obscure part at Acura, being that it is from a 1991 model vehicle.

Update:
I think this is the part number:
08e75-mca-100h
this one appears to come with a bezel, but I think it is removable from the bezel.
More research is necessary.

Trifle pricey little light runs $59 from Motogrid. BTW - Motogrid is a good source of Honda parts I've ordered parts from them for several Goldwings and a couple for my Silverwing. Pretty quick service and good prices for OEM parts.

Just went back to the thread (bernardiparts) for the switchable Honda truck light and they have it now for $20.11 a copy.

Good price but their shipping cost SUCKS!!!! $11.00 UPS for this item to Oklahoma.

Whether you get this switchable trunk light from Bernadi or some other source, this is one of the best functional improvements you can make, for a reasonably low price.
It only takes a minute or two to pop out the old light and insert the new.

Has anyone thought about replacing the trunk-light bulb with an LED? There just might be something out there that will bridge the gap between the bulb terminals.

There is an LED replacement bulb for the T10x31 festoon bulb in the trunk light.
You can probably find it on ebay or some simple internet searching.

I have a LED bulb fitted and also use an on off switch.That way I can choose to turn it on or off while the seat is up. It should turn itself off whenever the seat is down. The LED bulb will not run down the battery overnight. Old age Paranioa has set in.

We need to find a universal switch where when you put the seat down unlatched it pushes the button to turn the light off vs relying on the seat to latch completely to turn off

I just went to my Honda Car Dealership, ordered the light with the switch and it was easy to put in as it just un-plugs and plugs in. It will fit in the same hole. I like it because it is now functional when I need it and works like a factory installed light.

Hi, picked up my light (34260-SH3-004) from my local car dealership, with taxes and all, it was $30.00. Popped the old out, carefully unplugged the wiring, plugged the new light in, popped it into the hole, fit like a glove, now my luggage light reflects the elegance of the rest of the bike. It was worth the 10 0r so Chinese flashlights I could have gotten at Wal-Mart just to allow my ride to ooze a bit more sophistication. I also installed my new Airflow which was delivered yesterday; life is good. Can hardly wait for the weather, etc.

Well, Comic_Stumper, You put "bling" on some rides (Goldwings,Valkyries,etc) and you put "Farkles" on others (SWing,ST1300,etc) The point being that farkles add to safety, convenience,and charm without being obnoxiously tacky, but of course you would know that being damn near the city of brotherly love, eh? :-)

There, there, Big Bird, :-) no sparkles, just farkles; I have the afore-mentioned coveted switchable light (choir please) plus the ubiquitous Givi Airflow, have a J&M 2003 CB I'm adding just as soon as I can get to it, have figured out an elegant sophisticated antenna mount (in harmony with the switchable light of course) am adding a powerlet socket with adaptors to power a mini-compressor to go along with my stop & go tire plugging kit, and adding H/L modulator and extra brake lights with modulator, heated grips, grenade launcher, not festooned, you understand, just modestly equipped. :-) :-)

Iiiii.....read this full post and as I was taking notes was careful not to miss a single word. Reguarding the under seat light....the way i see it....we all have five choices......

1.Use the the light that comes with the swing while not being so absent minded as to make sure the seat is closed so the battery wont drain.

2.Order a replacement with a switch that is pretty much plug and play so we wont need to buy "10 or so chinese flashlights".

3.Wire the underseat light to the blinker so its always off until you "Turn LEFT"....LMAO....

4."Remove the Freaking Bulb" seems the be the more frequent recommendation, but i think we should remove the Dxxx light altogether.

5.After you install the 12v plug in the front left compartment, i think u should buy a 1000w hunting spotlight, "Remove the Freaking Bulb from the light under the seat, make Dxxx sure you never turn left and buy "10 or so chinese flashlights" to give as christmas gifts to our friends who dont need them.

In short, what works for me....#1....keep the seat closed so the freaking bulb stays unlit.....OR.....if I were so absent minded to remember to close the seat....i would "REMOVE THE FREAKIN BULB"......HILARIOUS!

Now, I have an idea. remove the underseat light ASSEMBLY and wire an automatic coffee maker to the wiring....that way i can have hot coffee while im looking for my 1000w hunting spot light in the dark because its lost under the seat next to the coffee maker.......

I don't think there's 1 forum member who hasn't at one time or another thought their seat was fully closed and locked when it wasn't.

I guess that I'm the only ONE. Somewhat anal retentive in that area. But, I did remove the silly bulb. Since I NEVER ride at night (by choice) I also don't have a cheap flashlight under the seat (a small mag-lite in the glove box is my choice).

im just having fun, i did act absent minded and forget to close the seat, but then i made a life changing decision and started remembering to close the seat(listen for the click)....just like i started remembering to turn off my grip warmers that are directly wired to the battery. Amazing how when i remember, the battery is always hot! I learn something new everyday, i never realized that the left turn signal was also the on/off switch for the underseat light :-)......P.S. Im sending all my Swinger friends a butane lighter for christmas this year.....if step 1-5 dont work, use the lighter.
