A service manual along with the parts book would tell you all you wanted to know about that . :)

nothing appears to be easily found at Ronnies or another site in Hawaii like it I've used before Cycle City Parts Finder but I can't say I've been looking in the right places.


Service manual only gives me this, no part or number

Will dig deeper tomorrow.

Crap! I looked at that and completely missed the switch.
Much obliged

You were looking too hard. I didn't really care, and it jumped up. :thumb
Yeah, sometimes you can't see the forest for the trees (or tree for the forest in this case).

Anyway, just called the local dealership with the part number and they have one, same price, in stock. I need too but will pick that one up this weekend and pay for two so they can order the other. Thanks again to all.

Why do you want to cover them? Just curious.

I have two switches on my 09 RKC. The right one is for the extra headlights and the left one I'm told is an extra. What would I use that switch for? James Bond Oil Slick?

I believe that the earlier Road Kings (mine) had switches that require those boots to resist water intrusion. Later models (yours) did not come with boots, leading me to believe that they must be internally sealed.

The other switch controls an auxilliary circuit with a connector under the seat to add accessories. So, yes, you could use it to hook up your oil slick. Although it seems that some Harleys create their oil slicks without any help from a switch.

Right, I assumed they were covered for moisture and though I haven't had any issues with them i notice that the rubber on them is broken and its just another thing I'd prefer to correct since I can affordably.
I wondered what the left one was intended for, what other types of accessories are designed to connect to the connector under the seat and is this the connector controlled by that switch?

Heated clothing, gps, phone chargers. radar detectors, engine/wheel light kits are just a few things I can think of quickly that the aux light kit can be used for. I bought one, just because it was only $20, now I use it for my GPS.

I bought one of the cigarette lighter adapters that plug into a tender connector and ran the wire to the front of the tank beneath the console to plug my GPS in. It sits on a mount I bought for the handle bars. What is it exactly that you bought that plugs into that and where do you situate it?

That's cool. How long is the cable, any longer than what's pictured?

Nope, just long enough to attach to one of the plastic side covers. There is a template included for mounting, I cut & spliced a longer cable to reach the frame front down tubes.

I used a 12v extension from Radio Shack to do this. No splicing required.
