moving some posts into this one.. seems appropriate..
the MCCruise buttons do seem clunky..
the slim switch won't fit between switchblock and lever clamp with my Pazzo levers so....
I'd prefer an OEM switchblock with extra buttons... preferably LHS, but that's made more difficult by the CB's buttons on that side.
Someone has already changed VFR1200X switchblocks to ones from an Africa Twin (2019+?), and using the DCT buttons on RHS switchblock to control the aftermarket cruise (not MC)
"Upgrade" to Africa Twin switch gear. - Lighting, Electrical, and Wiring - Honda VFR1200X Crosstourer
stock 2018 CB1000R switchblock clearance.
RHS= 30mm from throttle tube plastic. Probably 15mm clearance to tank
LHS from bar metal =37mm, with about 12-13mm clearance to tank
Options from Africa twin look like:
2020 CRF1000L non-DCT with cruise. The ACC/DEC paddle button seems OK
This is TBW, and may accept the CB APS sensor
This one is cable throttle unfortunately (2018?), but the big DCT select switch would be nice and tactile for cruise.
2019 DCT non-cruise, not too bad, vertical rocker also tactile, and doesn't take up too much space before the bar.
is is TBW, and with some luck the CB throttle sensor (APS) will fit
another option is Honda Rebel 202 with DCT
has both DCT and cruise buttons
