    Default Hand Control Options

    I would like to clean up the hand controls on my shovel (factory). A couple of buttons are busted and I am deleting my signals anyway. I need some inspiration!

    As far as levers go, I am running a front brake so Iíll have a master, but would like something a little lower profile than sets that mate to a switch housing. What are you guys running?

    I will run a hi/lo, kill switch, and starter button. I have thought about micro switches in the bars themselves, making a switch plate, or even mounting them in the console (Lowrider dash). Any advice or suggestions?

    What works, what doesnít? Anything to stay away from?
    Thanks!

    I just did this on my Panhead rebuild project. Used the POSH switch housing with a three way switch ( headlight ) and a push button ( horn ). All I can say is use a LOT of bits to get to the final size, the tolerance on the holes leave no room for error.

    For controls I went with a set of GMA controls from JP Cycle. You just need to make sure you get the right bore for the type of caliper.

    I have used PM hand controls and changed to a hydraulic clutch on two bikes. I think they really cleans up the bars. I ran the lines into the bars along with a internal throttle. I didn't run any switches or buttons on either of them.

    On my sporty I took the stock controls and filed down the mounts, elcheapo single throttle cable, pressure switch for the brake light, and a small push button for the horn.


    Mounted the high/low beam on the headlight shell.
