Thnx a bunch @kylerhsm

Just ordered an r3 pod 

My oem pod was causing a short in the cluster that wouldn't allow the indicator lights (neutral, high beam, l/r flasher) to actually light up


ATGATT... ATTATT, two acronyms I live by.

kylerhsm - This post is so good I had to join the forum!  I'd love to do this to my XSR700 but the switch pod harnesses are much longer on the XSR (around 10" longer if I remember right).  Is the R3 harness the same length as the MT07 one?  If it's somewhere between the MT and XSR ones it might work, as I installed a shorter bar on my bike.  But I tried to fit a MT07 pod (to take up some of the harness slack after installing the shorter bar) and the harness wasn't even close to being long enough.  To fit I'd need a harness 6" longer than the MT07 one if memory serves.

This is fantastic. Thank You! 

Any particular spread of years to shop for on the R3 switch?

Ah, damn! Anything to get away from that awful placement of the horn button.

How much are people paying for the pod? Is this a $50 or $250 upgrade?

Well done, thanks.

I've got a head start on this problem because both of my bikes have the 'funny' switch switch.


Just do it!

I received a "yzf R3 2015-2017" switch in yesterday but noticed that the plug is missing the green #10 pin.

I am curious if i ordered the wrong switch from ebay.  Either way, thanks OP for the handy work. Defiantly a worthwhile mod.

I found a used one on eBay. Guy was asking $25, I offered $20. It's on its way to me now.

Mine came specifically from a 2016 MT03. The cable was far longer than the standard MT07 one, which made it actually slightly difficult to remount the headlight as I had to work out where to cram the extra cabling.

To all who have been reading through this post. As per this comment, up until now I was not aware that the R3 switch, although identical in appearance to the MT03 switch, does NOT have the green wire. I have just downloaded an R3 service manual to see what this is and it's because the R3 has two headlights. One is the low beam, which is always on, and the other is the high beam which is only on when switched. The MT03/MT07, because it runs a normal H4 bulb which is switchable between low/high beam, uses both the yellow and green wires from the pod. It looks like the R3 uses the yellow only and has no green, as the green runs internally within the loom straight to the headlight (not via the pod).

I am very sorry to those who purchased the R3 pods already, but I had no idea they were actually different and it was only coincidence that I happened to get myself an MT03 one. I have updated the original post at the top. Whilst it would probably be possible to add the green wire to the pod, as it's esentially the same hardware, I'm not sure how easy this would be and so I'd recommend getting the MT03 instead. Again, apologies for only realising this now.

Someone might be able to confirm if the green wire is actually there but just blanked off, but I have now confirmed they are a different part number.

OK great, thanks for the follow-up!  For those of us in the US that's not a cheap part to obtain (no MT-03 here), so I'll have to ponder on this.

I'm wondering if the loose pink ( power to horn) wire is present on the R3 switch. Also curious why there seems to be two power wires for the horn (brown and loose pink). Either way, I'll dissect the R3 switch when it arrives and see what the headlight rocker witch looks like. If it's a single pole, double throw switch with the ability to operate two beams then adding the green wire for low beam should be a breeze. Unless it's got a different switch inside and only the outer rocker is the same. They dang sure look identical!

Pics from the ebay ad for the switch I found. The switch is listed as 2015-18 R3

The black/yellow clutch switch connection there, along with the loose pink/black horn wires. Can't tell much about the main harness connector, though.
