    Hi all, first post…

    I am bringing a 1974 T-150, US version, back to life. I just fitted a new wiring harness on it and it’s mostly been going OK. However, the old three position headlight switch was toast, so I have a new one. Of course, the wiring diagram shows terminal 1 through 8,, with connections on 3,4 7 and 8, but the new switches have combined 3/4 and 5/6 connections. I’ve tried every way I can think of to connect this new switch and have everything work, but when I get it sort of nearly there, the coils and ignition are always “hot’ even when the key is out, which is clearly wrong. Removing the brown/blue hot wire from the headlight switch allows the keyed switch to work again, but I’m kind of lost and there’s probably a know tweak for this in this community. Any help will be really appreciated before I set the bike, the garage, and me on fire, in that order.

    Hi Gareth.

    The LP Williams site has instructions for this switch.https://www.triumph-spares.co.uk/light-switch-3-position-5-pole-lu31788-99-0563

    Those instructions say to not use the brown/blue wire so that must mean no park lights.

    Almost never used park lights on a bike so not much of a loss. I think I may have set bike lights to “Park” more often by accident than on purpose over the years.
