I have a VX 800 and the lights are wired to be on all of the time. I've always liked to start my bikes with lights off and then put them on when starting off. Has anyone fitted a separate switch to enable this to be done and where would be the best place to splice into the wiring loom?  Cheers Glyn.

Does your bike not have a relay that switches the headlight off automatically when you press the starter button?

Not that I have seen or am aware of. I will check next time I start it however. I still would like to have control over the light however.

You do not need to splice into the loom, the UK version of the bike had a light switch, so you could just replace the switch on yours. Looking at the wiring schematic, the loom is the same on both bikes, it just looks like a couple of links in the connector where your switch plugs in.
