Your brake or clutch lever might not be all the way out... when riding push them out and see if that works... if that dont work check fuses...

Check that the rear brake peddle is not "dragging", also the switch, If it's not adjusted correctly the cruise will not stay on.

I had this problem also with my 88. It was a wiring problem with the low speed sensor.

Did you check the connections on the handle bar by the brake? I had that once and had it in and out of dealer and they couldn't figure it out. Turned out to be simple thing of tightening the nut on the connection down the handlebar.

Contact switches at one of the levers. I have chrome aftermarket levers, and it disengagues ever now and then when I hit bumps.

The same thing happens to my 89,and found out the clutch lever moves just enough to disengage the cruise when i hit a bad bump.I have extended my fingers to keep it engaged on slightly rough roads.

This seldom happens with original levers - it's usually the chrome aftermarket levers that cause the problem. You might consider going back to stock levers if you have the aftermarket ones.

I ended up wraping a couple round of foil tape around the tab that makes contact with the switches. This took up the play between the two. Has worked so far.

For a less-tacky temporary fix for this problem, on the CLUTCH side only, just unplug either of the spade connectors that attach to the clutch switch. This is a 'normally open' switch, whose contacts are closed when the lever is pulled. Unplugging either one, or both of the wires will totally remove the switch from the equation, so keep in mind that the CC will NOT disengage by pulling the clutch lever' Benefits to this temporary fix are: can be done on the fly, without any tools. bumpy roads won't affect the reliability. the temp. fix is totally reversible with absolutely zero ill-effects.
Keep the rubber side down.
