Are you sure you're turning it to ON and not to P? Check to see if just the tail light is on.

If you determine that the switch is bad JC Whitney may have one at a lower price than the Honda switch. I bought one years ago, it fit perfectly and the wiring is a simple plug in connector.
Good Luck.

ok i look at the switch and it wasn't on the p . So with that being said, could it be posable that the switch is bad and not leting the power flow all the way through. still no turn sig or break light from the front or back ped. :? it is got a apt. with the bike doc. as soon as the new coils come in the old 1's mia that shouldn't stop it on the power.

Thanks Mike
