Default Fatboy S Auxiliary Lights

I'm looking to order the Auxiliary Light Kit for my Fatboy S with the Freight Train Nacelle. I ordered the bolt kit for it but not the lights yet. My question is where does the switch mount ? I see no provisions on the Nacelle for a switch, do I have to drill it carefully myself ?

They make an auxillary light bar that'll bolt up to the freight train nacelle? I guess times have changed, use to be the light bar would have to filed down where it bolt up.

On the Heritage, the switch controlling the auxiliary lights is in the left rear fork cover.

I guess I have to drill it because there is nothing capped off for a switch on the Freight Train Nacelle.

Some masking tape and go slowly and you'll be fine. Don't forget to repaint the raw edges to prevent rust.
