starting issue

Post by mike188 » Mon Jun 06, 2016 9:03 am



I recently purchased a 2008 trike with 9400 miles. On several occasions when I try starting it after either getting gas or stopping somewhere for a short time it won't start. Nothing happens when I push the starter button. When I put the bike in Neutral, it starts right up. On other occasions it starts up no matter what gear I'm in. Any idea what could be going on. I had a 1994 trike and never had this occur. thanks

This is a good thing.
On other occasions it starts up no matter what gear I'm in.
This is when you pull the clutch lever to start it in I hope.
Check the clutch lever pivot bushing or oversized grips interfering with the neutral safety switch operation that's attached to the clutch lever assembly.
