Auxiliary Power switch location

Upgrading my 05 DL 1000 to a 2014 DL1000 and am looking for ideas of where to mount my farkle switches.

I have the need for three multi position switches and a USB charger. 2 on/ on/ off switches (One for Aux lights/fog lights) the other for ( GPS/ USB/Volt meter). and 1 on /off/on (for heated grips hi low)

Started out with one of these.

Amazon B07MMDGKMJ

Then changed the switches out.
Amazon B00X5MNWX2
Amazon B074C7LBD5
Found this Box to keep everything waterproof
Amazon B005T7SBHS

5 Possible locations

1. Above the dashboard using the Givi FB 3114 Windshield Mount
2. On the dashboard by relocating or eliminating the adjustable windshield springs. ( what a bad design by Suzuki) PN 94631-31J01-291
3. On the handlebars by mounting a 6.5 inch X 3" plate over the handle bar mount.
4. Center Gas Tank Cover. (In the front) PN 44191-31J00-YKV
5. 2 on each side of the Cowling PN 94430-31J01

What has everyone done to address this issue? Please post up pictures.

Would also like to share this double bus fuse block that has room over the negative bus to mount a couple of relays. Fits nicely under the seat in one neat package.

Is that Muon, Tau or Electron based?
LOL thanks for silencing the crickets.

It seems I should expand my research to other forums.

Well being new to this forum (in the number of posts that have contributed to the forum) you may want to do a little research before trashing it. Google is your friend. There are as many solutions to what you want to do as there are members. You can't really expect people to go out take the time to take pictures and then write up what they done to do the design for you. Ask specific and relevant questions and you will get relevant answers.

And introduce yourself and fill in your info about your ride.

I came up with a little shelf to acommodate those kinds of things, but it hasn't ben real popular because it woudl be obsurred by a tank bag. It would be a realtively easy DIY project if you have a home shop.

Here is what we do for the other models.

And here is a pic of the one designed for a 2014+ DL1000.



When I make them the holes are CNC machined for the specific components the rider wants to mount. Here are two powerlets and signal dynamics voltage monitor.

I apologize if I came across pushy. I have over 60,000 miles on a Vstrom and spend my time in the seat rather than on the keyboard. I have done extensive research and shared Suzuki part numbers as well as Amazon part numbers in an effort to facilitate a meaningful conversation on this topic. Google Search has failed me in exploring switch mount options on this forum.. A picture is indeed worth a thousand words . Once I get to ten post I will be allowed to even share links that I was unable to post to this thread. Again sorry for wasting your bandwidth.

Thanks for sharing this. I am seriously considering modifying this design by mounting the base plate over top the Handlebars using longer bolts and stand offs. The Aluminum waterproof box ( BUD Industries CU-476 Aluminum Econobox, 6" Length x 3-1/4" Width x 2" Height,ASIN: B005T7SBHS) would fit there nicely but would not be aesthetically appealing as mounting directly into the bike. Thanks for sharing.

You are welcome. i thought about doing something similar with shelf (the use of stand offs), but just so much time and so many distractions.
