But, I'll visit your link though I'll allow I don't see how a relay can be a work around repair for a defective combo switch that makes a dead short on high beam resulting in smoke coming off the wires in the switch (seen when unattached from handlebar).

I just hate giving up on taking the stock switch apart and trying to repair it. I'm pretty sure someone, somewhere has tried this, problem is, finding them. Having said that, your idea has some attraction, and I guess you were facing a similar problem when you decided to install the VW relay under the gas tank as a work around. Thanks.
