ignition switch diy repair
« on: March 02, 2018, 10:59:56 AM »
So to follow on with the dreaded ignition switch fault i was running the bike as i have not started it for a couple of weeks and thought i would just check the ignition switch wires, as i was a bit concerned as the last time i rode the bike it did cut out on taking a left hand bend briefly with the gauges swinging to the right and it did start up again with no further faults.as i moved the wires from the switch the bike cut out. now my bike is now out of warranty and i did not want two keys even if my local dealer would do it [there not very helpfull different story] so i thought i would have a go at repairing it myself first you have to remove the head stock triple tree for you yanks, there are two screws on the bottom of the ignition switch remove them this gets you to the bottom of the switch then you can solder new wires on to the switch pack and solder them further up to the switch loom.i realy dont now why triumph dont just sell the ignition switch part of the lock with new security bolts as it is a separate part from the lock?. will ad some photos when i can. the photos are in the gallery will try to link them to this post

Looks like those wires have all been chafed
by being pulled tight against the edge of that cover.

yes mr nut the wires from the switch go over to the left hand side under the lock box so when you turn the steering it turns the wires hard. have moved the mutiplug to the center behind the headlight to put it in the center of the steering only time will tell if this helps the problem

Wish this post was about a few years ago, when my ignition switch problem occurred, would have saved me a fortune, and the hassle of changing the locks in the luggage.  :028:

Looking at these pictures again, I wonder if it's possible to re route those wires so that they exit straight down from the switch? That removable cover, maybe there's scope for say someone with a 3D printer to design something else to allow that??
