The Crazy Hungarian
I got a k8 750 by disabling the clutch switch u guys mean the little plastic box that makes it so u have to pull the clutch to start the engine?
Cuz the 750 one is the opposite of the 1000, ours extends out when the clutch is pulled so I actually cut the little plastic piece so it thinks the clutch is always engaged and I wouldn't have to pull it to start
Exactly. Unfortunately the aftermaket levers does NOT push the clutch switch the same way as the OEM does especially if they adjusted too much in. Just needs a little creativity to fix the problem and not to whine about it...:chucksso what I'm getting from this thread is swapping out stock levers for an aftermarket set (ASV, CRG, etc..) can give me faults and what not? \
Can anyone clarify before I pick up this set of CRG's from motomummy?
It's already bypassed if You can start the bike without pulling the clutch lever in. :hammeri can start the bike without having to pull the clutch lever in.
I just had the EXACT same issue. Started after I disabled the clutch and took it to the track. I just installed a switch as in post 17 (I think). Too late to run it down the street but I will see tomorrow. Hopefully this solves my issue.It just weird, that nobody else had this problem before. I can not believe, that no '07-'08 1000 owners disabled the clutch switch so far...
Anyway. I hope this will be the solution. I'll let you know guys tonight.:cheers
Did you by chance clip or remove the clutch sensor? I cut the clutch sensor on mine so I didnt have to pull in the clutch to start it and it did the exact same thing yours was doing! I replaced it and problem solvedFinally someone! :shifty Yes, i have the same issue when i downshift and the light pop on @ hard engine braking. Do you have any aftermarket accessory, part on the bike what might interfere with the electrical system? Likie Power commander, quickshifter, anything?
Should work, since it does the same thing like the manual switch.Anybody ever try considering a hydraulic clutch switch?? I thought I figured out the problem with my brembo billet master and its switch and it still did the problem, so I went to plan b which was installing a hydraulic switch, I'm gonna see what it does tomorrow if not I'm gonna get a new stock set up. I'll let you guys know.
Thank you Alamo and everyone else for your troubleshooting of this problem.Should work, since it does the same thing like the manual switch.
