Has anyone purchased or have any experience with the left hand switch assembly available from Yambits?
Here is the link to the item in question:

Thanks!

Pure junk, I bought one, It doesn't even fit together, I fired it in the bin with frustration,
I ended up buying a FZ600 I believe or some old Yamaha switch and repainting it and using new decals, Looks like new.

Many Yamahas of the era used the same switch. RZ350, TZR, etc. The plugs may be different to the 500, but it's easy to swap out the wiring.

Good to know they are not worth the shipping cost, let alone the price. I haven't run across any other Yamaha OEM switches from other models that have the "PASS" switch on them. If anyone knows of a straight cross reference switch with the same layout (other than the wiring configuration) as the RZV, please let me know. Thanks to all for the input!

Shouldn't that be any of the UK bikes? RD500, RD350 YPVS, TZR, FZ, etc?
