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.
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
I actually had this happen a ways back, long story short I had to rig the switch on the side of the road to get home. It needed to be cleaned because it was shorting and I broke a tab on the switch case. When I got home parked it and the lights wouldn't go off. Had to disconnect the battery and when I repositioned the switch it was fine again until I replaced it. A good cleaning will fix it up just be gentle as to not snap the plastic tabs. There's two little screws on either side of the ignition switch just remove them (easier said than done they are tiny and hard to get at past the headlight and forks) slide down the black plastic case and then proceed to carefully lift the tabs over the notches. The two halves of the switch will separate be careful not to loose the tiny pieces. Clean the contacts (copper tracks) and re-assemble.
