Clutch Sensor

I put on some new levers on the 07 GSXR 600 today and I quickly noticed that there's some kind of sensor that the clutch is SUPPOSED to make contact with. Everything seems to work fine without that sensor but I'm just curious as to what it does. Anybody know?

It's your clutch safety switch which prevents the bike from starting in gear.
On GSXR's with it disabled it will also make it run it's neutral map which gives less power.

I could be wrong, but I think that's just a safety switch to keep you from starting your bike in first without the clutch pulled in.

With your kickstand up, of course.



Edit: Patrick beat me to it.

Damnit. Well I can make it stay put for a while but I pops out whenever I over-extend the clutch, which is another annoyance.

So the NEW LEVER is the problem

It lets the clutch safety switch slip out every time I release the lever

A sticky is just a thread that stays "stuck" on the home page for more exposure.
It'll always show up regardless if there is a new post or not.
