Auxiliary lights
on: February 05, 2022, 05:58:25 PM
Hi, would like to fit spot lights to my 2020 CR, looking for some advice as would like to use the oem switch but not the oem lights as I would like them black. I have found a harness on ebay that is for the CRF which may be compatible as I know the oem fog light switch is the same. Has anyone managed to fit this sort of setup with out having to use all the OEM stuff at OEM prices? Cheers in advance  :002:

Don't know but I fitted Givi LED spots and power them from the aux socket in the LH fairing top. I have them on permanently, don't know why you'd want to switch them off.  :027:

JMHO.

Thanks Skid, I just fancied the option tbh. Didn't realise you could do that from the 12v aux socket. Does that mean there is no need to run to battery or ?  Still learning unfortunately  :087:

Correct. I don't use the aux socket so it's doing nothing. I soldered a cigar lighter male connector on the end of the wiring that came with the lights and hey presto.

If I really do need to turn them off, I can just pull the connector out of the socket.
