Nice video. I documented the same procedure for a starter button switch from a 1982 GL500. It seems to be so similar to the one in the video that I thought I'd throw in a link to my efforts here: http://cx500forum.com/mediawiki/index.php?title=Rebuilding_the_Starting_switch

Just did my GL 1000, it's similar but start button switch is a little different. Taking apart and cleaning no big deal, getting everything positioned just so to reassemble is tougher. Kind of like trying to put the snake in a can snakes back into the can. :D

I like the video. Wish i had a laptop to take outside with me rather than have to go back and forth in and out of the house. And surprise surprise my bike don't fit in living room!! My question however is, can this also be done with handles still on bike? I don't have the luxery of being able to take the handlebars off. And if so is there anything that should be done differently or anything that can make it easier to do? Thank you for any help that can be provided.

A very useful addition to a toothbrush is another dental implement, the interdental brush - those fine brushes on a wire, designed to get between your teeth. These are very useful for cleaning out small holes and channels which get clogged up with grease and dirt.


The game's afoot;
Follow your spirit: and upon this charge,
Cry — God for Harry! England and Saint George!
