    Cruise Control

    My cruise control isn't working  :187:

    Antares had a quick look while we were in Scotland, weekend before last, and I'm sure he'll have a fiddle when he next visits my place but until then, has anyone had an issue or does anyone know of an issue and how to solve it? Thank you.  :028:

    Bike is 2017 6500 miles ...

    Normally microswitch on clutch lever, but I'm sure that's the first thing Antares probably checked... :084:

    In fairness, we only had a quick look, we'd just arrived in Ayr after a long ride.. having read up on a few threads I'm pretty sure that's where the issue lies.. :084: Thank you.  :028:

    Yes I did have a quick look but his quickshifter works perfectly fine which is also linked to the micro switches, not sure if it's the same one though. Worth pointing out he has the PUIG levers rather than stardard but they do have accommodation for the micro switches. :028:

    I believe one of the switches is for the clutch "lockout"/cruise deactivation, the other for quickshift operation. I've locked out the lower one as I was also having issues with the cruise control.... might be worth a look, just turn the little metal plate 90 degrees to lock out the switch.

    I can vouch that his particular Puig levers works perfectly well with both cruise control and quickshifter, as they used to be on my bike  :001:
    As Smithy says, there are two different micro switches for the two functions. I had the same problem at some point on my Gen 1 as the actuator pressing down on the micro switch had somehow been bent out of shape and didn't engage with the pin on the levers (or had even gone over to the wrong side of the pin). I'd have a good look in that direction.

    Cheers, I'll take a look, it'll be Saturday afternoon after work when I next get a chance to take a look though..  :028:

    Just be aware though...turning the little metal plate 90 degrees will disable the ability to turn off cruise control using the clutch lever....all the other methods will still work though, brakes, throttle roll-back and gear change.

    Will have a look, it looked like the bottom microswitch on his was barely being touched by the lever so it's probably to do with that, can you post a pic of what it's supposed to look like?

    If you listen really quietly, you can hear both microswitches 'click' as you pull in the clutch lever slowly. One will click at the start of the lever travel, and the other at the end of the travel.
