the bikes only seven months old

I'm wondering how many people have this problem with the starter switch not springing back to the middle position properly and if there will be a recall on it

i'm not sure how the button works i'll have to look up the manual to be sure but i'm guessing there's a small spring that pushes the switch back from the start position which has weakened due to fatigue and could probably be replaced very easily

Not heard of this problem before and I'm sure there hasn't been a recall about it.....I assume you've tried the 'cure-all' remedy - a good squirt of WD40?

ill get the silicon lube out tomorrow and give it a good spray, couple of times this week the bike has started turning over as soon as the key is turned in the ignition because the switch has stuck in the start position seems to be ok just now though

cheers m8 had a read of that just now. probably watery dirt or grit making it stick then plenty of it about at this time of year.
