OEM Fog Light Switch in USA?

I am interested in adding some driving lights to my AT and would like to use the OEM Fog Light switch. As far as I can tell, neither the fog lights, nor the seperate parts like the Fog Light switch or harness are sold in the USA.
Does anyone know if this is correct? Any idea where I can buy the Fog Light switch in the USA?

Thanks

I'm not sure if you give the part # to a dealer if you can order it in Canada and the US.

Rugged Roads in the UK sells the switch *08V04MJPG50A

Eastern Beaver a small company also sells the harness Eastern Beaver - CRF1000L wiring

I'm in the process of installing some MondoMoto fog lights I took off my old bike I got the part number for the oem button and asked the dealer, it's not a good part number in Canada. I ordered the switch and some spare connectors from Rugged Roads and the harness extension and tail light wiring harness from Eastern Beaver and had both orders shipped to my US postal address they were both there in about 10 days.

The harness extension works great I was able to pick up power for the oem power outlet and power for the fog lights including the return signal so the fog light indicator lights up on the dash when the fogs are on. All this was done with the harness extension, spare connectors and some of my own wiring harness fabrication for a plug and play installation with no hacking of the factory wiring at all.

I bought the switch from Rugged Roads and it's on the way now. I'm thinking of adding the Denali D4 lights to mine. I'm glad to hear that the dash light works with a bit of tweaking.

The accessory 4 pin connector behind the gauges has the following wires:

Green = Ground.
Red / Yellow = Switched power, fused at 10A marked "spare" in the small three position fuse block under the seat.
Blue / Black = Put +12V to this to illuminate the fog light symbol on the dash.
Blue = This wire becomes +12v when the high beam is on probably to turn off the factory fogs when the high beam is on.

I wired the switched side of my dash fog switch to the fog light relay and the Black/ Blue wire which lights the fog symbol on the dash.

Hmmm not sure why the pics are rotated.

So the dash "fog light on" indicator is illuminated NOT the push button switch, right?


I keep hearing that there is a version of the push button switch that is illuminated... but no one seems to know what that number is.


Does anyone know it this is true or have the switch number?

OU812,

Do you know the part numbers of the required harness connection? Also, is the taillight harness required? If so, do you know the part number? Also, which spare connectors did you use?

I can help you build or fix any Honda engine, as I was a dealer for almost a quarter of a century before I retired. However, I know my achilles' heel is electronics. So, please help if you can...

Like you, I will be installing the Givi lights from my previous bike.
