Starter button

This is more bitching than anything else. I replaced the whole starter kill switch unit the original was working. I replaced it because it looked old and worn and I found an exact replica . it is 4 years old and the button is sticking in and half the time my headlight does not come on and I would have to wiggle the button around to get it to come back on I guess it is beware of aftermarket stuff I have seen the cleaning video and I did not want to deal with all the tiny pieces

Just as an advisory, I have replaced my left hand switch on my 1100 with one from a Pan European - ST1100. That is almost identical and they can be found in very good used condition here in UK.
If (when) my right-hand switch fails, I will go down the Pan route for that as well.
