Just another quick shout out to all the great people here on the forums!!!! I was able to quickly fix my poor X after a break down at a huge charity ride when the starter switch contacts were slightly burned up. I was looking in the right place for the problem, but wasn't sure what to look for. My AMA membership had roadside so the X was taken home at no additional cost and in just a few minutes on here I had the solution.
Thanks again to all and ride hard and safe!!!!:choppersm

I'm glad it was an easy fix for you, did you put some electrical grease on the connectors.
We just don't stop with the pointers do we? :) Good add.

Congrats on the fix.
Everyone should put a little dielectric grease on their switch contacts. It will help prevent problems.

Did you just put new connectors on or replace the stator.
Was it the plug that comes up from the stator behind the left cover in the black boot.
That's ware mine was burnt in the connector.

Wanderingbear, Doc, put the grease on as soon as I cleaned up the connectors....thanks for the follow up...

Donut, I was lucky and just cleaned up the switch and added the dielectic grease and all went well.

OK thanks, I was confused.

kmesser - did you stretch the little spring under the contact just a little - You should.
