There's a switch on the clutch, the plug is right below the perch. You probably knocked it out. You can also bypass this switch with a paper clip....
Threadjack.


Hey Donnie, could you elaborate on this? I've tried contact cleaner on the terminals, yet still have the problem.

My bike does start, sometimes right away, sometimes after 10 minutes of messing with that plug. As someone who hasn't dealt with electrical issues in the past, I would just like to know where this paper clip bypass is to be placed. At the female end of the plug to bridge between the terminals? That was my first thought. But I want to be sure before I try it.

I discounted the possibility of the kickstand switch being the problem because I never had to mess with it to get the bike started, and my kill switch is always in the on position.

Are there any other places to check? Thanks Bossman.
