Is Scotts still around?

Does anyone know if Scotts MC is still around? I was just about to order something from his website today, but when I went to the site it is not working. Hopefully he hasn't gone under as he had some neat goodies on there...

On the surface, it appears either his business or his site has bit the dust.

Exactly like the rear underhang brackets, however that wasn't the part I was looking to get. On the RC I had a few years ago, I had ordered the headlight switch that is from the European or Japanese models where it has the passing button and you can actually turn the headlights off. Anyway, that was what I was after as I liked that little mod on my old one.

So, if ScottsMC is gone or appears to be, anyone know the part number for that headlight switch or how could I get my hands on one. Scotts was getting them from somewhere....

According to the fowlers online parts fiche it is number 5 which is part number 35020 MCF 640.

I much prefer this option on my SP1.

Thanks! Looks like there are 2 different part numbers a 35020-MCF-640 and a 35020-MCF-670. I'm assuming the 640 is the one with the passing button/on-off switch and the 670 is one without? Obviously that is an assumption so if anyone has any knowledge here, please let me know.

Also a guess here...shouldn't be any difference between SP-1 and SP-2 switches correct? I have an 03 (SP-2) and would rather buy the correct part the first time...

there's no way that this switch will interrupt your low beam for you. the low beam wiring never touches the connector for the handlebar switch on the US model rc51.

in fact, if you plug this thing into your bike, it won't even work properly for most of its functions.




to make it work right, with limited functionality, you have to re-pin it. If you want to control the low beam, you'll need to do some harness modifications.

No offense, but when I installed one of these (which I purchased from Scotts, hence why I want to go back for another) it did in fact work exactly as you expect it wouldn't. I do know that the low beam on an 07+ 600rr is on the same circuit as the starter and I wouldn't be surprised if you tell me the same on an RC, however all I can say is that this did work on my old RC. Unfortunately I sold that bike a few years ago and where it went I have no idea.

I just rewired one of these.

The low beam circuit doesn't touch the connectors that this plugs into.


It can operate the high beam just fine, and also the marker lights in the front signals, as well as the horn and signal lights. But the low beam no. Unless you do some wiring in the harness.


Scott was probably re pinning these so they would work on these bikes, but if he was adding the functionality of shutting off the low beam you would have to pull some wiring out of the harness and re-route the headlight low beam circuit through this switch.

I'm not sure what Scott did before it got to me, all I know is that it worked.

Anyone have the number for Scotts? I'm still partial to using him if he is still in business...
