Aprilia RSV Light Switch Dipped Beam Wiring Modification


Firstly, this is mainly for RSV's that have had the headlamp dipped beam converted to HID but can be used on all RSV's.

What will this modification do?

It will allow the dipped beam to remain on when you activate the main beam switch. This will give you much better night vision due to having all three lamps illuminated at the same time.

Currently, when you hit the main beam button your dipped beam will go out. Try it and see, if it doesn't then you don't need to do this modification.

Apparently we have two types of light switches fitted to the RSV, we will call them old and new for this exercise. Please refer to the correct part of this 'How to' for your switch type.

Old-style Switch
For the older switch type, un-solder the black wire and re-solder to the centre connection point.

Standard wiring


Modified wiring


New-style Switch

The newer switch looks like this when you get it apart:



Remove the plastic cover that hides the dip switch then pop the dip switch out.

Either unsolder the black wire (A) and re-solder it to the white wire (B) or solder a short piece of wire between A and B (I think this is easiest). Make sure you use a similar gauge wire to the other wires in the switch.

See picture below



Reassemble the switch and your conversion is complete.

This is a how to guide and all modifications are done so at the owners’ risk.




Blue ones are so much faster than black ones.

Ideal thanks for this one just what I'm looking to do, my dip beam has a hid conversion and sometimes when going from main beam back to dip the hid doesn't ignite.
