Fitting Driving lights
« on: April 28, 2023, 08:57:35 PM »
I am looking at fitting a couple of Stedi lights to the ST, and wonder what the best way to wire them is, in the absence of a Police switchblock.

What sort of switch and where to place it?

Where to break into the highbeam circuit for ease of access?

Similar sorts of questions, that have probably been answered by several members already, and those answers my help me to not re-invent the wheel, again. I will be mounting them under the mirrors, as described in the Stedi lights thread and elsewhere.

Of course, if someone has a Police switchblock lying around that they are willing to part with, that could be a possibility as well.

Here is a link for the driving light circuit. No idea what a suitable switch would be, any waterproof one would do..
