    USB (or two) would be a GREAT option ..... now if only there was a retro kit and quartet harness tie in :)

    If its a blue plug, its for the quick shifter. Black is for the fog light kit, if memory serves me right :)

    Just ordered one of these switches to go with my Chinese riding lights in the hope this prevents their flashing mode and also to look better. Pity the switch costs nearly double the price of the lights but should be a better set-up.

    Thanks Adst, I'll take a look at YouTube now, do you remember if the chip was in the lamp itself or the switch?
