    Apparently when Harley designed the thumb switches on the 2006 RKC they didn't take into consideration that not all peoples thumbs are long. Having a issue with me reaching the Hi/Lo beam switch. My question is can I swap the placement of the horn and Hi/lo beam switch to make it a little more user friendly to me. About half the time when riding home from work at night I'll hit the horn button by mistake.

    For me I would leave it as is. I would rather be able to get to the horn easier than the hi/low switch. Other than that I'm not sure if you can swap them around or not.

    It's not real easy to do. The switches are made (soldered or riveted) on a tin piece that fits into the housing. One is a momentary contact 2 wire, and the other is a two position 3 wire.

    I on the other hand have the opposite problem. I want to use the horn and end up turning high beam on.......:nosad

    Here are the old style switches
    IMO the new switches are alot more user friendly
