Stupid Clutch Safety Switch

So I went out to eat with a few friends last night and as I was getting ready to put my gear on I went to start the bike I turned the key, flipped the kill switch off... listened to the fax machine noise, and then pulled the clutch in, hit the start button... aaaaannndd... nothing.

As I started to fiddle with the bike getting really that I was going to need to find a way home... I noticed the clutch safety switch was dangling and was not connected. plugged it back in and fired the bike right up.

I rode away with dignity intact.


I just wonder if it is going to need replacing or should I just bypass it? I will probably replace it, but at the same time, the previous owner jerry-rigged a few things on there ("bar risers" and exhaust) so perhaps I will just continue the tradition... LOL

Fix it. Bypassing it actually lowers the redline and takes power out on most bikes. The clutch switch is even operational on my trackturd.

Depends on you...

Have you ever tried or needed to start the bike in gear?

If not, you don't need it...

If so...

U need to fix it. It runs on different maps. Neutral map when pulled in clutch. Good way to see it is run the bike, pull clutch in and out at idle, there is as noticeable change in rpm

yes that is very true, and it limits rpm range. do not bypass it.

On my 07 600rr, when I installed the Pazzo lever, I couldn't start the bike in gear so I filed down the little plastic /switch on the clutch switch go made contact with the lever. Now I am able to start the bike in gear. Does this effect the map at all?

Mr. Whoopie told me the same thing at the track with Endo's bike because I was going to by-pass it.

Why would you want to start the bike in gear with the clutch out?

Pm replied to. It sounds like u did it properly. As long as when u pull the clutch in it dissengages the clutch switch and when u let go of the clutch lever it engages the clutch switch your good

Thanks camero. That's what happened.

Arronp: in case if I stall in gear, I just need to squeeze the clutch and start the bike back instead of putting it in neutral.
