Postby wilsonoo » Fri Mar 01, 2013 5:26 pm



Hello I own 1990 1500 trike, my problem is the cruise control , when I have on, the first good bump it comes off. I engage it agine, hit bump, off it comes, so I don't use it, but nice on long trips . Any ideas. Thanks

bad micro switch; at brakes or clutch..bump moves it and it turns cruise off..wore bushings at the levers could do it too..but still a micro switch issue..yo ucan unplug th clutch side and see if it cures your problem..brake side I am not sure..

Yes it could be from clutch or break lever micro switches. Could even be a bad fuse to fuse holder problem from heat issue. Check that fuses are securely in sockets. Light pressure on foot brake pedal will trip. Also possible the set button is worn.

Test your clutch lever for excessive wear. Take out on a ride that you've previously experienced this bump/fail situation but keep your clutch lever pushed forward while you're riding along (on cruise control.) If the bump(s) do not cause C.C. failure, then you may be experiencing the problem(s) I described in the 7th entry to this thread: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=12019

If holding the clutch lever doesn't prevent the C.C. failure, try the same technique with the brake lever, and after that, the brake pedal, until you've found the faulty control, or eliminated them as a problem.


Keep the rubber side down.
