Clutch lever safety switches
« on: May 25, 2018, 01:49:52 pm »
Iím having issues when my bikes stalls in traffic, when I try to restart while in gear it will start again but other times only after I go to neutral,  I also have tested this at stand still and experience the same random starting issue when in gear. Could that be one of the switches in the clutch lever?

Definitely sounds like it - they are quite finicky, get dirt in them and also need careful adjustment - very small adjustment screw, easy to lose. I would try some switch cleaner spray first.  Often if you listen carefully you can hear if the switch engaging.

Had the same problem on my 2010 ADV it is the clutch lever micro switch causing the trouble.  :thumleft:

Sounds like the clutch lever switch.  In most cases a cleaning will sort it.
