To take starter button out do I have to remove the throttle cables loose from the carbs? Or can I loosen enought to get the control apart. My head light will not work unless I push the start button to side.

Sorry, have never had mine apart. I think someone here did a write-up on disassembly and cleaning, but not sure who or where. Have you tried cleaning. Sometimes....many times.....a liberal amount of electrical cleaner from aerosol can, while wiggling buttons, followed by some WD-40, will take care of many issues. While still on the bike.

Throttle cables can stay hook to the casting.Get a extra pair of hands,a phillips,some grease,a small flat file,sand paper,rag.It should take a hour to do.
