Light switch

Unread postby armouredtrooper » Sat Sep 30, 2017 3:16 pm

Being that I'm an ex military type, I watched a video where the Ural bike operator hit a switch that turned off headlights and allowed him to drive the bike tactically. Where can I obtain a switch that will allow me to operate the bike under tactical conditions? or hunting situations? I cant find a switch like that in Canada. :sidecar1:

I'm a retired RCEME Sgt myself.

A switch like what you saw in the video could be installed on your rig, you just need to source a weatherproof toggle switch from Princess Auto and wire it into the circuit(s) that control the headlights, signals and brake lights. But, really, the words "tactical" and "Ural" shouldn't be used in the same sentence. Contradiction in terms. :smiwink:

I believe this is what you are looking for.

Not sure what year / model Ural you have, but if it came stock with the Italian controls, then look at your wiring diagram. The headlights are actually wired through the right controls as well. There is no switch there because rules are we are supposed to have lights on all the time.

In Europe though, you can get the right control with the switch you are talking about.

Doesn't cut out the tail and brake lights, though.
