It's a good idea to get in to the habit of using kill switch as part of your shut down procedure. That way, it saves it from degrading, sticking and not working when you really might need it. The old saying... use it, or lose it.

This can be a problem if you have changed to after market handlebars without the locating holes for the switchgear.

Over time it can move slightly which is enough to break the contacts.

I usually just give the clutch side switchgear a little twist forward and all is good again.

hand/bike pumps?

Now that I'm slowly getting my tool kit together; what is the best method for pumping flat tyre out in the field? Of course, one of these small http://www.pashnit.com/product/cyclepump.html but at a $150 plus dollars, it maybe on the wish list longer.

So that brings me to using hand pump. Are these relatively efficient at getting air in without busting my hump. Plus most of them seem relatively compact for storage.

thanks in advance.

bark busters

Has anyone had any experience with these type of busters?

http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/310361369...#ht_1485wt_653

Not sure if they'd fit straingt onto the standard DR bars but they are cheaper.

I have the cycle pump and the footpump from motorrad garage/adventuremoto. Both good. Good valve chucks on both which is often half the battle with cheapies.

Cheers, RVT

Just for the record, the kill switch has no effect on lights. They are hard-wired in to the ignition and stay on when kill switch is off or on and same goes for the clutch and side stand switches. They will only turn off when the ignition key is turned to off

makes sense kezza
after rereading cougars problem i now think a problem with the battery terminals or ignition switch(key) as my second guess
missed the bit about the h/lights

I sent cougar a PM this morning stating exactly that. Could be in his ignition switch or maybe his battery has just died suddenly or has bad connection or even broken wire. Because it happened after using his kill switch to cut the bike and when he went to restart there was nothing, no lights, no nothing, is probably just a coincidence.

Try replacing the fuse regardless of whether or not it looks okay.

Hi all and thanks for your suggestions.

Replaced all fuses, pulled apart the kill swith again, bypassed the clutch lever switch, jiggled it around, checked the battery (12.74 v on the multi meter) and all connectiong to the battery fine. Nil.

Could it be the side stand switch (it is still connected).

Bike was going in anyway for a ckeck over before the Flinders Classic so guess what else I will be getting checked out??

Glad this happened in the shed and not bush. All from one press of the kill switch.
