cruise control

Postby russ85228 » Mon Jan 06, 2014 6:29 pm



My 2006 wing is not kicking out of cruise control when I pull in the clutch lever. Need a fix and how to. Any help would be appreciated.

Check the switch mounted to the bottom of the master. May just need a squirt of contact cleaner.

It's #7 in the diagram.

Very common failure item. $15 for a new switch, 10 minutes and a screwdriver to install it: http://cyclemax.com/inc/sdetail/clutch_ ... 120/201582

You know, that just might be a good item to check once in while to see if it will disengage the cruise control. I, for one, NEVER use the clutch to disengage the cruise. Since day one, which was many years ago, I've always disengaged it with the front brake lever (99%) or the brake pedal (1%). It always seemed unnatural to pull in the clutch lever while riding down the road at speed. I also never thought about checking the clutch switch. My bad, I guess.

Also do a quick check of the wires connected to the switch(es) on the clutch lever base. When I found I couldn't start in neutral and found I had pulled a wire connector back from the switch when washing and drying off my bike. Really easy fix though... push it back on! Doh <big foolish smile here>
