Fog light Question

This may sound like a stupid question, but is the fog light switch suppose to light up when it is pushed in to turn on?

Hey,
If you rally wanted to it would be easy to mount a small led in the fairing by the switch wiring it to the switch so it would light up when the fog lights are on.
I have not done it but I am thinking about doing it. A nice blue light I think.

Or you could replace it with a switch like this (yawn): https://www.amazon.com/HOTSYSTEM-Lig...lighted+switch

or this (much more interesting): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00M1Z4TCW...=3F2JFDISLWP12

I wouldn't use that first one. Unless you want to hold your finger on it while you're riding. Looks like a momentary switch to me. I use one similar to change the pattern on a paired set of strobe lights

Just wanted to say thanks for adding yet another thing to my already endless upgrade/customize list.

Yeah, it's a momentary switch. I was trying to show a boring example to highlight the more interesting one.

You're welcome! I was thinking of putting in a small panel of them ("This switch turns something on", "Zombie Targeting System", "Windshield Wipers", "Interior Light", etc.).
