I'm interested but would appreciate if you could describe what you would define as plug and play.

Would your kit include a toggle switch? What about a wire harness sufficiently long enough to plug under the seat (as opposed to deep under the instrument cluster)

For me, īPlug and play' implies more than a led light with Honda type connectors.

Good luck with this project. Winter is long here so I will monitor this thread before pulling the trigger on auxiliary lights.

Right now we are trying to gauge interest for these kits. We don't know if it will be High Beam activated or triggered with a toggle switch.

If we decide to make a kit for the Africa Twin it will definitely be specific to that bike. All of the wiring harnesses and other parts will be designed to provide the cleanest installation and highest performance.

For now a user can purchase one of our Universal kits that mount on 7/8 and 1" crash bars.

Thank You,
Bailey, Baja Designs

I've voted yes as it would be handy, however.....
I think it might be pretty difficult to do as everybody has very slightly different requirements, we're awkward like that

Red M/T, the shinyness didn't last long...

Yes, Id be interested, certainly in some more details. Plug and Play electrics are always good as far as I'm concerned, wiring's not my strong point.

Do you have any specific things you would like to see vs. wouldn't like? I definitely understand

We will definitely have some more details as we get closer to developing the product. We (Baja Designs) like to provide an easy, pain free, installation that can handle abuse for many years to come.

If you do put a kit together I think it would be a big plus to have the oem fog light switch and have the fog symbol work on the dash.
