Question 2013 Baja euro headlight switch

Purchased euro headlight for my Baja, didn't purchase the euro headlight switch. I assumed the Baja had that euro switch as standard equipment. Wrong to assume that. I want the headlight to switch off completely.

With the euro headlight installed, the H7 low beam and parking light is on at start, not switchable.

The handlebar switch, as standard equipment, is 60011074100.
The euro handlebar switch is 60011074000.
These two parts appear identical, apparently the part numbers are not.

I cannot find threads regarding this on ADVrider.

Is there a simple wiring solution?

It's available for about $10 cheaper through the big generic parts houses, but...I like to support those who support us.
Just my thing, ain't telling you your business...

I appreciate that. My KTM dealer really appreciates me. Now, even more!

There are aftermarket ones on ebay for about $50. Quality looks good. Might be worth it!

The headlight is well worth the cost. Significantly whiter and broad in its area. Snowing currently, but lights up the front field pretty good!

The stock installation actually had a connector that wore through the H4 rubber boot.

Some strategy is required to reinstall the new headlight without any compacting of bundles/connectors.

GO BRONCOS!

I kept all that stuff for years, but when I was confident Punkin was never going anywhere (no concern for resale $), I dumped all those stock parts on the ADV Flea Market, and the few no-sales went to ebay. They all got snatched up, no problem. Well, everything but the stock snorkle

It bought me several new farkles that I didn't have to explain where the money came from. Made enough to donate $50 to the site for Baldy.

I sold my well used stock headlight here for half what a new Euro HL cost me . The big bonus to the Euro light and switch is that high/low beam can be on at the same time. And it's nice to turn them off for multiple restarts, like when clearing an old road for the first-of-the-year ride, and especially to keep the HID ballast from overheating from repeated refires.

Question 2013 Baja euro headlight switch

My pile of used KTM parts did not grow last week!

Took delivery on my euro headlight switch from my local dealer. It is identical to the switch on my 2013 Baja. It's so identical that it operates the headlight just like the stock switch. It does that because it is identical in every way.

IT DOES NOT TURN THE HEADLIGHT OFF.

The reason is that the LED lights, standard equipment on the 2013, are wired to be turned off by that switch. According to my local dealer, you have to have a seperate switch IF you want to have the euro headlight turn off and keep the LED's on a 2013 model. There is no wiring solution from the dealer.

The 2013 switch is a three-position from right to left, OFF or HEADLIGHT or HEADLIGHT/LED's. It is not wired for OFF to mean the headlight is off.

I don't get it!

Am I missing something?

Is it a US DOT thing?

Oh crap! I'll bet that's it.

I wonder if it's possible to rearrange the pins on the headlight side of the plug to get what you want.
