1977 Gl1000 Wont start

Post by Jbravo59 »

Aright so I recently have done a handle bar switch, which has caused a lot of issues... I replaced the battery and the clutch mini-switch and thinking I have to replace the right hand controls. So she won't start, I hit the starter button and nothing no cranking no clicking not a thing... so I'm thinking I need to replace the whole right side controls. Anyone with any suggestions or agree with replacing the right hand controls?

My right hand starter switch does nothing until 12 hits at the start of the day. The switch gets dirty and if you can generate a spark the it cleans the contact and allows use for the rest of the day. I would not replace the right hand controls for this issue. There is a radio Shack replacement part that others have found success with.
