Why would you want them backlit? you know where they are some you cant even see anyway ( headlight main/dip for example) I want to see the road ahead and possibly the speedo and fuel gauge everything else is just a distraction
My feelings exactly. FWIW the Goldwing also has backlit switches, I had a 2010 and had miscellaneous lights on the left grip, right grip, tank center, left fairing, and right fairing. Mostly they were out of my sight line but still annoying.
