Starter switch board

so the actual board that the four wires are grounded to is broken between the headlight setting and the start setting on my bike.

is there a way to replace just this item or do I have to order an entire handlebar switch assembly?

I think it's only available as the whole assembly, but for the break you describe I would try a drop of super glue as long as the electrical part is undamaged.

My solution was to solder the headlight wires together on the switch.

So far so good.

I lose the ability to have the headlights shut be off when starting.

I have the Eastern beaver relay setup with the switching(uninstalled).

After that I should be good.

I'll post more if I have problems

Not great pics but should convey the concept.

Does the fix you did have any effect on the hi beam/lo beam switching? I'm guessing not as that switch is on the other side.

The EB set up is good. I got the extra cut off switch for one headlight too. And I installed LED's, cheap'os from China that are nice and white bright.
That gives a bit of power available for other toys.

I have the EB set up to I just haven't installed it yet but still doesn't fix the actual wearing out problem with the starter board.

Does it give you a number of switching options you didn't have before though.

Have you looked at easternbeaver.com. I'm not affiliated with the site, but a student of mine pointed me to it after my starter button broke for the second time.
