Douglas Dragonfly Miller Switch Orientation
« on: 07 Jan 2019 at 15:42 »
Hi Everybody. 'm fitting a miller switch new to the bike.
It has the park/emergency/off/Ign & charge/head/Pilot positions
I've removed the Miller Switch front and need to confirm the orientation before re-fitting.
What moulded switch text faces forward on the bike?
What moulded contact number aligns with this?
The wiring diagram shows the contact numbers from the underside.
Many thanks

I started with a clearer head this morning.
It could be that the switch could be in any orientation because it rotates in the headlamp shell.
But a logical orientation could be :-
The moulded OFF position towards the LEFT of the bike looking forwards.
The moulded terminal number 8 corresponding to the moulded off position.
Does this sound correct?
Many thanks.
ps the switch and the bike needs to be completely re-wired, which is why I want to cross check the wiring at every stage.

But a better orientation could be :-
The moulded OFF position facing forwards towards the FRONT of the bike,
The moulded terminal number 8 corresponding to the moulded OFF position.

On my dragonfly the Off location points forwards as you describe.

That's what I'll do then.
Just for information.
I didn't have the correct switch knob for the Dragonfly switch.
So have modified a large knob,  which was originally on a 3 position BSA switch on the bike.
So it fits the brass slotted shaft of the Dragonfly switch.
It looks very good.
No innuendo's intended!
Thanks Andy1303
