All,

Having a problem with my bike. It starts when i turn the key. Like the starter switch is jammed on. I took it to the dealer and they replaced the starter switch. When i went to collect it it did it again... So they kept it another week but said it never happened again. I've now just got it home and the problem is back. Seems to happen more when the bike is warm, hence why no problems with a week at the garage.

Anyone else had this and might be able to point me in the right direction? Probably not the starter switch as it's now new. A bit worried my starter might be constantly running when the bike is playing up. That would not be good!

Steve

A bit more info on this. So the problem is intermittent. I've now realized the bike starts if the handlebars are turned to the left. I can now use the handlebars to start the bike rather than the key! Looking like a wiring loom issue.
