I have a 2002 Bonneville T100 and on the RH handlebar there is what appears to be a blanking plug above the starter switch and below the cut off switch. Does anyone know what this is for? It seems like a switch should go here but for what? There are two unused wires behind it that may be something to do with bar mounted indicators from a different model.
Thanks, Jim

This is from my 2008 T100.

Are you talking about that place where it says "Triumph?" The T100 is pretty much similar to the T120/T140, except they have more options/features, so I always figured this is where they would have put the cruise control switch. But, like yours, mine just looks good.

That's what I'm talking about. It seems that there should be a switch in there but no parts diagram that I've seen lists it.

If I interpret my wiring diagram correctly, that is where a headlight on/off switch is supposed to be. At least here in the USA federal standards dictate the headlight must be on at all times so we did not get this switch. I do not have a part number for it and have never been able to find where to buy one. ...J.D.

The switches were not for sake in the US. I bought one from GB back in 2004. These are no longer available in GB. I could not find one for my wife's T100

Do you know the part number?

It is in the screen capture, in my message. T2026029; cost: 112.28 Euros.

They told me "nothing listed", so I will pursue another avenue.
BTW does your '08 have factory heated grips?

No, it doesn't. My area rarely gets that cold for me.

I gave up on finding the factory light switch. I bought a relay and socket on ebay and am going to put it in the headlight bucket to switch the common lead on the headlight. I also have a small push/pull switch to add to the gauge cluster on my America that will activate the relay. Project for this winter. ...J.D.
