Hi all, my beloved 2008 silverwing has a dodgy starter button so it’s be decided to replace the whole right hand switch cluster- how do I get to the connector below the handlebars and behind the headlight, any ideas welcome, thanks

IIRC First remove the handlebar covers. Then remove the Windshield Garnish (the W-shaped panel below the windshield). You may also want to remove the right cubby pocket. With that access you should be able to disconnect the switch harness plug. There are also two screws on the underside of the switch & throttle assembly which need to be removed so that the switch separates. Then you may also need to disconnect the throttle cable so the the throttle tube, switch assembly and wire harness can be slid off the handlebar as one piece.

If that doesn't work you'll need to remove the entire Front Cover, i.e. front body.

Have you tried spritzing the start switch contacts with some sort of electrinic contact cleaner?

Have you checked for clean & tight electrical connections (particularly earth)?

Starter relay takes a heavier load so is more likely to fail than the sspush button switch.

Can you hear the relay clicking ?

I believe in simple repairs, at least at first. Spray the switch and gaps around it it with WD-40 or something similiar. Switch should then work. This method always worked for me.

What John says. However, WD-40 could attract dust/dirt. I would use a contact cleaner.

Sometimes, switches botton or rocker just needs a little lube---contact cleaner not lube. Ride a lot and bottons usually continue to work.
