Damn electric gremlin

Just put a new battery in my baby and noticed all my lights are on. Funny thing is the key wasn't even in the bike... Could my gremlin be in the key cluster? Bike started just about right up lol.

Doesn't start without the key. Guy is tracing all the wires. His initial thoughts are that its sole kind of diode.. Now he's playing with the ignition

Are you sure you have the key in the right position when off?

Needs me an ignition switch boys. Who's got one. Bike will run but the key can't be all the way on. Has to be half way on and off. Also had to wires rubbing and killing my battery. That's fixed. Hopefully this ignition is the last problem for a long time.

I believe there is a whole write up on redoing your ignition switch. Do a search and I am sure it will show up. Good luck.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

let me know when you are available Tom, and I will help you out. Bring that bad boy over my house and we will take apart the ignition puck and clen/rebuilt it together. Then we can fire up the grill, have a few beers and chill for a bit.

Anyone else in NNJ want to stop by to have any issues investigated, let me know. We might as well make a day of it....lol
