The switch to the left of the headlight is the headlight dimmer switch. It is 3-position: Dim, Off, Bright.

The headlight will not function unless the bike is running, since there is no battery...

This switch, especially with the original knurled chrome knob, is a bit rare. It also fits early Sportsters. So take good care of it...



John thanks for the info , i found the kill switch ,
thank-you . i understand the dry kick method and cracking
the throttle as you give that compressed kick ......
i tried all that and still no start . i am confused about
the switch mentioned since it seems to be a 2 way switch
by the left side of headlight . which posistion is it to
be for the engine and brake versus the headlight and back
light ect.? or does it matter ? i tried both posistions
of course / and still no luck i am close to getting there
/ i know it/ do you have to retard the magneto in any way
to start? i did buy a new superglide in 1996 special
order out of milwaukee harley plant drove it 12 years
