Maintenance and repairs



On this page I will outline some of the repairs and maintenance I have performed over time.  This is probably as much for my own reference as anyone else:

Sidestand switch repair:

After cutting out on me a few times, I discovered that the sidestand switch was the culprit. When I removed it, I found that water had gotten inside, the main spring was corroded and broken, and the switch was filled with moisture. I cleaned it up, dried it out, replaced the spring, sanded the contacts a little and hit them with some contact cleaner. Then reassembled the switch using dielectric grease on all the moving parts inside.  Works like a charm again!
