Starter button quit working

2 posts in this topic

Posted

My scooter sat in a carport for 4 years in the Philippines and when I finally got back the starter button did not work. So I Jerry rigged an automotive starter button directly to the selenoid for now but I want to remove the original button from the handlebar, brush it and sand it clean to see if it will work again. Any tips on how to do this or how to replace it with a new one would be appreciated. Thanks

Depending on where you are in the PI, you may have a switch that has been corroded by salt in the air, mixed with humidity.  In that case, I'd remove the switch, and swish it around in fresh clean water to remove the salt.  Then I'd take it apart, spreading plastic retainer clips as gently as possible to gain access to the contacts.  You may find a new switch on alibaba or other site(maybe Dan's shopping site) at relatively low cost.  Headlight and turn signal switches are readily available and not expensive, just cumbersome to reach because of all the dis-assembly required.
