How To: Make a Bazzaz Fuel Map Selector

** Alright Ladies and Gents, if you own a Bazzaz and don't want to pay $70 for their Map Selector Switch, well, you're in luck. I decided to make my own today. The Bazzaz Map Selector Plug is just a jumper wire, when the circuit is closed, Map 1 is selected. When the circuit is open, Map 2 is selected. So, a regular on/off toggle switch would work perfectly. When the switch is ON (circuit closed), Map 1 is selected. When the switch is OFF (circuit open), Map 2 is selected. **

First off, tools /parts needed: 4mm Hex head to remove trim panel, wire strippers/crimpers, soldering iron, and (optional) razor blade





Ok, you want to locate the Bazzaz Map Selector plug in the supplied harness. The cap simply has a jumper wire in it. Forgot to take a picture of it BUT after you find said plug, cut the jumper wire directly in the middle to turn it from one "U" shaped wire into two separate wires. Solder a length of new wire to each respective wire coming out of the plug. After some heatshrink, it should look like this:



Now, take the switch and mock it up on the dash panel (or wherever you desire to have the switch mounted.)



Yet again, forgot to take a picture, but if you are using this exact switch, remove the top nut, 2 washers, and bottom nut to figure out what size drill bit you need to drill through the dash panel. Once you figure that out, drill through and test fit your switch. It should look like this:



Ok, now that you have the switch test fit, you can begin connecting the opposite ends of the wires that you attached to the Bazzaz Map Selector Switch. Solder each wire to its respective terminal on the switch. In this situation, it does not matter what wire goes to what terminal on the switch. After some electrical tape, it should look like this:



Hard work is done, now just run the wire in between the foam on the underside of the dash panel like so and secure with some electrical tape.



Hook everything back up, install the dash panel, and congratulations, you just saved about $65!

Nice write up. I prefer making stuff myself. I wanted a USB port to charge my phone and gopro at trackdays and I saw one that connects to the battery for £22 but instead took the few hours to make one myself and saved a whopping £15 lol I felt id achieved something at the end though which was half the fun.

Thanks d1. I could never justify spending $70 on something that I could easily make myself for a fraction of the cost. Just like the servo buddy (servo eliminator). There's no way it's worth $20 or $30, so I followed the DIY instructions and made a fully functional one for $2.

Actually, the Bazzaz switch is pretty nice. I just put a Bazzaz system on my ZX6 and put on their map select traction control adjust switch set. It's got a nice bracket that will bolt up right to your clutch perch. It's also a very nice water proof switch set.

Which you should take into account when you make your own. Go to a marine supply store for a good waterproof switch, not Radio Shack. I suppose the worst that can happen is the switch gets water in it, shorts out and your stuck with map 1 only.

The TC adjust is an 11 position rotary switch and the connector is a 3 wire I think. It's a bit more complicated but you might be able to figure out how to make one as well.

The switch won't get wet where it is mounted anyway. I see your point about a waterproof switch but if you mount it in a dry area, you're fine. Also, this is not designed to be a TC switch. Just a map selector switch. If people want to drop $70 on something that really costs, at most $10, then I'll let them waste their money. Meanwhile, I'll be here with the extra $65.
