Hey guys,

The high lights and the traction control have a weird layout, IMO.
I was wondering if I could just open the controller and switch the two wires around, re-sod them and then have high beams on the index finger rather than on some stupid thumb button near the horn.

Since I never turn off TC anyways (and it resets with every engine start), I wouldn’t mind having it “mapped” to the original high beam flash button.

Any of you guys tried that? You think it’s gonna be a quick fix or would I run into issues with voltage or whatever (not good with electronics … just wondering in general)

The fact that I am not good with electronics is the "reason" for my question. Not the "answer" to it.

Jesus, Bevo. This isn't 220 volt. It's not like he's going to burn his house down. Chillax, bro.


Donnie, I'm good with electrical, but I only have the SC60 wiring diagram. If you can point me to a wiring diagram link for the SC80, I will take a look for you. There used to be one on here that Ghostrider posted, but the thread has vanished. How serious are you about wanting to do this? You may end up needing to hire someone to do the actual work depending on what needs to happen.

It's going to depend on whether the switch has a microcontroller sending info out to a controller network or if everything is just straight wired. Either way, anything is possible with the right knowledge and tools. You may be able to just swap a few wires, or it may require component level soldering, or it may require custom fabrication or switch housing modification. Step one is looking at the wiring diagram.


edit: I just looked at the parts diagram and the connector going to the switch appears to be huge which leads me to believe that everything is still straight wired. If that is truly the case, it will be a very simple mod. The cleanest way (what I would do) would be to re-pin the connector. The easiest (lowest skill) way would be to cut and splice the wires in the harness between the switch and connector.


Someone please link or upload the SC80 wiring diagram.

@DELuth aw, man, awesome! Thank you. That was exactly the answer that I was looking for. So: Straight forward – but use with caution. Got it. I mean, I'm not a total noob … I do know how to solder and to figure out wiring. But like @Ghostrider.1127 said (in actually very good German!): It's not exactly cheap, so don't break it.
Hence, me asking first before ripping stuff off.

(BTW, Mr Ghost, YES, please, I'll gladly take that diagram).

@Bevo, people like you are the reason men don't ask for help. If you need to proof your "manliness" by putting unskilled beginner riders down, I guess your problem with insecurity is bigger than mine with wiring.

Your sense of humor is in need of adjustment.
I personally wouldn't attempt modification of anything electrical on my bike. I'd pay an expert to do it, but don't let me discourage you.

Thank you, Sir.

Yeah....it's not looking good, Donnie. I can't see all of the parts of the diagram I need to, but I don't think what you want is possible. You might be able to use the traction switch as a flash to pass, but not the other way around because of how it's integrated into the high beam switch. Doing it like that would leave you with two flash to pass buttons and no traction on/off button at all. Personally, I'd leave it as is.

thanks, mate.
After just having crashed a camper van and ruining my cowl, I'm just about done with trying shit myself anyway.

It's just sad that "learning by doing" is so god damn expensive on bikes. I never wanted to be that twat that rolls on the mechanics parking lot – in his prestine dianese full leather and cabron helmet – and be like "I don't know, the indicator just stopped working"
