The starter button has a dead spot, sometimes it will start the engine, other times I have to wiggle it to make contact, I’ve sprayed contact cleaner, and it’s fine until the cleaner drys, than back to wiggling the switch, I’d appreciate any help. Also had it to the dealer, and he said the switch is bad .
thx

Just no way to do it without disconnecting the throttle cables from the engine which is quite a job.

Try removing the switch, disassemble, clean, lube with dielectric grease, assemble and install. No WD-40.

Why is that the case? It seems like you could wiggle it out of there. Pretty sure I did on mg 99 but it was a long time ago.

On the left side of the frame , close to the steering neck there are adjusters for the throttle cables .
If you loosen those fully it is possible to disconnect the cables from the handle .(at least it was for me ;) ).
