This switch went bad on my dad's 875KCST, and he was really mad to find out
that they were $350 form dealer boy! Well he bought it and fixed it, but I
did see one advertised in EC some time ago for around $150.....might have
been GPR or IPC, look through EC and call all the numbers and you will find a
cheaper one. If you need those numbers, email me.
Now, as for a temporary fix, he used a piece of foam between the dash and the
stalk to hold it in the normal light position...you may have to swap the
brights/low beam wires for that to work, not sure. If you need to know, I
can call up Dad and see if he remembers what he did.
