919 has been put away for a month or so. Doing maintenance & turned on the key to see mileage for my log. No fuel pump noise. Kill switch is on run. tried starter--nothing other than the headlight goes dim. All lights work bright as day. Fuses are good. Where do I start? Battery is relatively new & lives on a tender.
Its the kill switch. No continuity between black & white/black wires at connector. Put in a jumper instead & got fuel pump. Opened the switch halves at the handlebar & really moved it around hard & now it started working again, but for how long?
The real question is how to get the throttle cables off. Looked under the tank--aint happening there, I would never get everything hooked up/adjusted again. Suppose I'll have to take the bars off & hope they can slip off when the throttle tube is not on the bar.
Yep that's how I got my throttle cables out of the starter/throttle assembly. Took handlebar yoke clamps off, so I could slide/undo assembly. Manual says find the slack by adjusting the nuts down at the throttle assembly. Bugger that.
Nope; and since I have to go to the hassle of taking the bars off just to remove the switch to clean/check the contacts I will be putting a brand new one on because I surely do not want to do it again or be stranded somewhere. Lucky it happened in the garage.
