Just found a momentary (normally off) switch with the right thread and size to replace the washer pump bellows that connects to the wiper switch. I can now press the wiper knob for water and the electric washer pump runs.
This has the added benefit of being in my local hardware store (Lowes)

The next bit will cause comments I?m sure, I?m fitting a usb socket in the original wiper switch hole as I want power to charge my phone and sat nav, it?s the same size as the switch so is completely reversible at a later date if I want to return to original.

This has 2+off twist positions. Push activates a microswitch .
The hex rod is pretty much the right size. I eased the flats and the brass button with a file as I didn't want to damage my knob.
I got this from James paddock (UK triumph spares). I returned the first as the rotation force was too much and then it jammed..this one feels excellent.
