Well my buddies 2003 naked blew over in some high wind a while ago and somehow managed to break off the starter switch...no idea how that happened by the way. He recently went out and tried starting it just by placing the thumb switch where it would normally and nothing happened. Assuming everything else is kosher, just the metal on metal contact of the switch should turn over the engine correct?? I realize the clutch safety switch, tip over sensor etc might be involved but we are just trying to eliminate possible reasons there is no ignition. All help would be appreciated .
