The previous owner of my 98 1100RT installed PIAA driving lights. He used a BMW three-way rocker switch which was intended for heated grips and fit in the original panel cutout. On the high setting the lights work fine. On the low setting the resistance is causing the wires to overheat to the point of burning off the insulation. My local dealer quoted me a mind-numbing $75 to order a two-way switch (just the part, not installation). While I'd strongly prefer to have a switch that fits into the original cutout, I can't get my head around paying this much for a switch.
Any ideas on how to modify the three-way switch to eliminate the resistance? Anybody know where to find a used two-way switch or other type that fits in the original panel cutout? I realize I could just leave the switch in the high setting; but I'm concerned it will will be switched to low by accident at some point.
