That must have been a good feeling when you pushed the starter button and it fired right up.. WOOT!!.. Congrats.


They did but they didn't. It obviously would have been worse without them but it's worth a set IMO. Once I blew out the starter button out with air and I pressed it in I immediately noticed the difference. Put the switch back together, connected the battery and it fired right up! Too bad it is supposed to rain until my surgery Thursday morning. I will be riding sometime this month even if it means bringing a passenger to help me lol.

Hey, good luck with your upcoming surgery.


I chose to do the work myself. Insurance gave me that choice and I ended up making a grand or more plus they gave me $25 an hour to work on it. I have it back to normal now.

Yes. I crashed in September and went down on the right side. I remember the grit in the button when I first started it. A pebble must have got lodged in there after I took the kill switch off the handlebars. They took a good brunt of the impact and ended up bent. Here's a pic right after I crashed.

Ok, I see what you mean. It may have but the spark was so big I let off immediately. Thanks for explaining it better.

I'm not sure I understand. The starter motor is not bad. The start button that you press to start the bike is what I'm talking about. It had dirt or a rock behind the button preventing it from pushing all the way in.
