Need help with ignition switch
I have been following the procedure described in the Verses for cleaning the ignition switch and my bike ('94) seems to be slightly different than what was described there. For example, the Verses indicate that the switch will have two wires that need to be disconnected to remove the assembly from the bike, one multiconnector and one single wire, but mine has the multiconnector and two wires. I disconnected all three, but am wondering why the difference.
Anyway, I now have the switch out of the bike and have some questions abut what I see, the descriptions I have read don't seem to quite match what I have but maybe it's all just a matter of perception.
-The four tabs: I have attached some photos to help me identify what needs to be unclipped in order to open it up, I have read so many warning about how fragile this is that I don't want to go all animal on it without knowing for sure what I am doing
-I have seen references made to the "puck", which I am assuming is the lower piece with the wires attached to it. Because it is not quite circular, I wanted to make sure that this is indeed the puck
I am going to get into this some evening this week, if you have any clarification or words of advice to offer before I proceed I would be very grateful.
