Clutch Switch

Has anyone change their clutch switch. Mine is dead so I need to replace the switch and would like the heads-up on the How-To.

Like.... where does the wire tie into the harness and how do I remove the switch where it connects to the clutch leaver?

I still do not have the replacement part.

The connector is just under the tank. Cut the wires to remove the old one and use a small socket to unthread it. Hand thread in the new one.

On my bike, the connector was in the left side of the fairing, zip-tied to the fairing frame right next to the connector for the heated grips. Arrowed in the diagram below. Buy a bunch of zip ties...

How does it come off the leaver side? Just unscrew the whole part?

 

Yep.

 

When I did mine, I just cut the wire so I could slide a deep socket over it and unscrew it. I put the new one in and tightened it the best I could using needle-nosed pliers.

Thanks for the replys.

 

I had two of them fail and finally just jumpered the wires together. I always pull my clutch lever to disengage the clutch before starting. I have done the same mod to my R100RS and my K1100LT just because it sucks trying to find neutral in the middle of traffic when the switch fails. frown.gif
