Moto Guzzi CEV Headlight Switch Ambassador Eldorado 12746001

No wires included. Do not solder as that might melt plastic base. A conductive epoxy is a better choice as there is no chance of melting the switch components.

Per Greg Bender, This Old Tractor:

"IMPORTANT NOTE: It is very easy to destroy original or aftermarket switches when using a conventional soldering iron. Even if you know exactly what you are doing and are very experienced with soldering procedures, the switches can very easily be rendered useless. Rather than using solder, I strongly recommend the following:

  • Use a conductive epoxy to secure the wires to the switch. Most epoxies, including JB Weld, do not conduct electricity. MG Chemicals makes a conductive epoxy that I've used with excellent results (part number 8331D). Atom Adehesives AA-PROD 123 is a less expensive epoxy that Charlie Mullendore of Antietam Classic Cycle reports works well. Nick Rossi contacted Atom Adhesives directly and found that AA-Duct 902 is the most conductive epoxy and that AA-Duct 916 is more suitable for motorcycle applications as it is flexible once cured and will be more resistant to vibration. Nick prefers the AA-Duct 916 (available from Amazon)."

Consult your parts manual for proper fitment.

Bought 2, both broke in days. Poor quality.

Purchased one that broke day of install, then a second to try again which broke after 3 days. The bottom switch is the primary culprit, quickly deforming out of condition. As a EE with years of experience Im confident in my solders, and current passing through meets expected part ratings. After $150 in failed attempts here to maintain the look, I’ll be building a cheap and easy replacement module with a couple toggle switches and a button for the horn. Bikes been out of commission for a couple months now with replacement shipping times, so I hope you can learn from my frustrations here!

TLDR: Check ‘this old tractor’ for a prefab or build your own.
