Thanks to dannytroy
for the instructions for this simple mod. If you have side by side headlights, with one set to high beam and the other low, like my scooter, here is a simple way to have the option to have both on. Usually these setups have a three position switch, with high, low, and both on with a spring to return to low when released.
This spring loaded both on position can be easily made to stay on instead of springing back when released.
-remove the two screws holding the switch on the handle bars.
--Option 1 -cut the black tab holding the spring with an exacto knife, this is not reversible
--Option 2 -use a jewler's screwdriver to pry the spring out
--Option 3 -disassemble the switch and remove the spring, then reassemble
-put switch back on handle bars and put in the two screws tightly
I was able to do option 2 without breaking the tabs, but I could see one or both being broken this way. I did gouge the palm of my hand when I popped the spring out.
Now I have a three position switch, with the ability to have added visibility at night with both lights on when I want.
