Well go ahead and buy yourself the $200 handlebar control unit and have at it! LOL....joevano said:Perhaps it is from a dealer breaking the exhaust chamber on my '94 1500 when he unbolted the mufflers and let them drop to save him time when he removed the rear wheel?
Perhaps its from a friend almost totaling a bike (not to mention the potential for injury) because a dealer did not tighten the brake caliper after a brake job causing the the bolts to shake out and the caliper to jamb into the front wheel?
Or, perhaps it's because since I was old enough to turn a screwdriver, my favorite thing to do is take things apart and put them pack together.
Whichever excuse you pick, it's a minor repair, no special tools required, no extraordinary knowledge needed, and because I want to do it myself!
Okay, spend $5.00 for the part and repair it. LOL... I don't like them working on my bikes either, but if you can buy the kill switch separately go for it. Myself, I wouldn't spend the big bucks for the complete assembly which I thought you would have to purchase.joevano said:Red, it's not a $200 repair, probably $5 worth of parts, even at Honda prices!
Dont think its a recall item on your bike. Only the first 7000 +/- units in 01 were covered - rest had the newer switches installed when built.My kill switch is getting pretty sensitive and doing it's job when it's not wanted to! I know it is a recall item but I'm wondering if I can buy the repair kit and do it myself
