Starter switch waterproofing


Recommended Posts

The last two time I got caught in serious rain, my 1200RT start switch got hinkey; requiring being pressed several times before engaging. Seems to resolve after a few days. Is this something a little dielectic grease will solve? What is the easiest way to get at the inside of this switch.

What you describe is unusual. You shouldn't have to come up with a solution yourself.


1200RT = in warranty = let the dealer replace it!

I have had my 12RT in some pretty serious rainstorms. Riding, then sitting in the rain for 2 hours and I mean it was downpouring, then back on the bike. Starter button worked 100% normal. I hose the handlebars when I wash the bike. You should not have any problem. Take it back to the dealer.
