Does anyone have a wiring diagram for a 1025r? I want to install backup lights to it for blowing snow. My old x595 had them when I pressed the reverse pedal. Not sure if there is a prewired circuit on these or if I can relay any existing reverse switch.

There's no such circuit in place for backup lighting, at least from the factory. There is a pigtail already in place at the base of your ROPS for either fwd facing lights or rear facing work lights. That circuit comes on and stays on on certain headlight switch positions.

Thanks Dieselshadow. I did find that harness, but there must be some electrical connection on the reverse pedal to make the RIO operate. If I knew this circuit I could add a relay and turn it into a backup circuit.

The RIO switch lives on the transmission speed/direction lever input. It's on the right hand side, near the top of the hydrostatic trans.

This picture is of a 1026R, before RIO and the newer 1025Rs. But the linkage is similar.

I don't have a diagram of the RIO circuit....

The reverse pedal is tied to the power take off controls...has to be a switch somewhere in the pedal linkage, I'd think.

Discard this thought...didn't read the last post...

I would think the easiest maybe to use the Existing Rops rear light pigtail circuit and just add a micro switch and two wires to connect to the reverse pedal to do the switching, no relay required or disturbing the factory wiring.

I did think of adding a another switch, but I was looking at all my options first. And by the way, why don't they incorporate a clock on the dash? Seems like I'm always blowing snow just before work and I can get lost in the moment.

I've always wondered the same thing. When I had the 2210 bought digital clocks from Adv , Wally World , after a yr or so tractor setting in sun display would fade. One evening I was in Wally World waiting for wife (normal thing ) standing beside cheap analog waterproof wrist watches I think at that time $6 . I take the wrist band off, get some velcro with sticky back then stick it to the dash. Every couple of yrs I buy a new one instead of putting in a new battery. Saves trying to look at the wrist all the time.

A DASH CLOCK? Next thing you'll want is "power windows"!:laugh:

I'm going to be shameless here... If you look up <Clocks4bikes.com> you just might see what you're looking for. I've been thinking about getting one of these and put it somewhere on my 1026. Haven't figured out where to put it yet but I like that it's made in U.S.A. :good2: If I wasn't supposed to put this in here, sorry and just go ahead and remove it. :flag_of_truce:By the way, there is a sticky on the RIO switch, it's location and what it looks like. And of course on how to bypass it.

Don't get me wrong on buying USA products , but paying 35-60 bucks for something I can get for 6-10 that I look at maybe 5-10 times during the winter mos.. I will admit those are nice looking clocks and if you look close and long enough at Wally World you can find just about the same looking item. If the bike didn't have a clock maybe but for the tractor where a rock could fall off the fel and wipe out the dash and my clock.:thumbsdown:
Just my 2 cents and no one is right or wrong for what we choose.

I was thinking of the WOW factor for our WOW tractors! :laugh: You get one and put it on your JD and someone comes over and sees it and thinks "JD puts a good looking clock on their tractors. Must be worth buying a JD". Naahhh, that wouldn't work. They would probably think, "I can get a 5 dollar clock that would work just as good as that high dollar clock". :lol: I was hoping that someone would buy one, mount it and show pics as to what it looks like so I could see it in place and say "I can get one at wallyworld for 5 dollars and save me some money". :laugh: I have to say though, it's a good looking clock and see why bikers get them. BTW, you're not supposed to let a rock fall off your FEL and wipe out the dash and clock. :unknown:

Didn't give it a thought today when I down at the tractor I could have taken a picture and then you could have gone WOW:lol:
BTW have not had a rock that large and hope I never do to wipe out the dash and clock, just saying:lol:

Replace the switch

There's no such circuit in place for backup lighting, at least from the factory. There is a pigtail already in place at the base of your ROPS for either fwd facing lights or rear facing work lights. That circuit comes on and stays on on certain headlight switch positions.
I know that this thead is a little aged, but there is a simple solution. Locate the existing switch that the reverse pedal hits, take out the two screws that hold it in place. Zip tie the switch closed with the wiring intact and lay it aside. Purchase Stens 430-213 Reverse Switch on Amazon. It its the same switch used on many lawn tractors (less than $10.00). The switch has a normally open side and a normally closed side. Run a new hot wire to the switch and then power lights that you install. When you hit the reverse pedal the lights come on. I added this to my 2017 a couple of years ago and it works great.

This would be a great idea ONLY if you were able to restore the original switch’s function and keep the lighting setup on a separate circuit. You’d pretty much need a second pole to do that. The ICC looks at that switch and has some logic for starting and RIO. If that switch doesn’t function correctly, depending on the year if the tractor, you may not be able to start it or use the PTO in reverse.

One could install a relay on that same switch to activate reverse lights with very little risk of losing functionality of the tractor. :good2:

Again, as stated in my post "Zip tie the switch closed with the wiring intact and lay it aside", it bypasses the RIO, which may not be the best idea for some, however, it does not affect the performance of the tractor. You keep the original switch plugged in.
