Pull clutch / high beams come on ?

Last night my 2006 wee started this problem. When the clutch is fully depressed and lever is at the bar grip, the high beams come on !! Partially depress lever and everything cool ???
Anyone seen this before ??



NEVER MIND !!! figured it out in the daylight, the repositioned clutch lever because of the Acerbis install barely hits the flash to pass button..DOH !!!

Check to see if you are accidentally hitting the "flash-to-pass" switch as you pull the clutch.

yep, sounds like you're hitting the yellow button in front. Easy to do.

Don't know how many Suzukis have the flash to pass button but I can tell you many 109 riders have had the same problem after reposioning their levers.
