the starter switch is a little touchy. i look at the headlights when the engine is on, and when i slightly touch the starter they go on and off. is this an easy fix (tightening the little hinge inside perhaps?) or is this for a pro.

i figure i'd have to take the right handle off

my headlights were going out on occasion too during the daytime for some reason i noticed and i just took it all apart and tightened everything. nothing super hard if your electrically knowledgable. heck pretty easy actually. havent had the problem since. that switch brand new is over $100

solder it to the other freaken wire and it'll stay on all the time, and not cut out with the starter being pushed. its what i did. otherwise the solder just won't hold, and make the connection. basically the bad wire is in a row of three others in one direction - and a row of two in the other. solder it to the other one in the two direction.

i was affraid it was gonnna cost a lot to replace it. so i think i will try to do it myself first.

i just wonder how long i've been having this problem cuz i mostly ride during the day, and the one night out of like 2 or 3 weeks i decided to go out, and they were flickering. i do the pre ride checks but they only seemed to be doing it while riding

:scratch umm am i missing something? i know on my bike if i hit the starter while it's running the light goes out as long as i have the switch depressed? this isn't abnormal as far as i know.:scratch but if it's really touchy you might wanna take the switch assembly apart and try stretching the spring out a little to give the button a little more pressure.
