Easy to find out - just remove bulb and turn on the ignition.

I am going to ask the dealer. It would be pretty cool to have an official indicator for aux lights... even though it is completely unnecessary.

The thing I am most concerned with is the cut-out on the switch block. It would sure be nice to have an OEM switch that controls them.

The 1200GS fog light switch works, but it's pretty pricey. It replaces the front half of the switch block (front of bike, opposite to the regular light switch). The new switch looks much like the regular light switch except that it sits crossways across the top of the switch block.

I mounted the Rigid Industries LEDs to Touratech's Crashbars. The 2 position switch was mounted into the blank in the black trim that surrounds the ignition switch.

I have the same "trophy" and mounting the aux-lights at the same position, what a co-incident!
But I am worry that when the crash bar touch the ground, the light will be the first to get damage!

No hands on experience with those particular lights and housings, but I'd definitely steer you in the direction of LEDs instead of halogens or xenons. The Pros, in the case of LED lighting, makes it a no-brainer.

OK LEDs are nice. What kond of LED do you recommend? Ratio solid price / good quality.

Very nice lights, I like them, but $ 300 for each, too much for me.

Nice lights & nice work!
What kind of type are they?
Where did you buy it and how much do they cost?

Thanks for the reply!

I love the Rigid Industries LEDs. Nice job on the switch! I had the amber ones installed on my old 1200GS (sold), but I used the PIAA switch instead ($24), because I felt it was more rugged. The reason I chose the single Denali LEDs over the Rigid Ind. LEDs for the F800 was for size and weight, but after seeing your setup I kind of wished I got them...
