Thought I'd pass this on, andpossibleits already made its way on here. Riding from work yesterday, bout 5 blocks from the house, bike dies at a red light. Luckly a vacantaccess road within 20 ft, and (mother Honda, justin case) with in a 1/4 mile It would turn over just no spark, checked the fuses all good, everything else seemed to work.Tex ted the wife to let her know my situation, friendpulled up and minutes later so did the wife. ( I know, get on with it ) anyhow the wifestops by Honda and a fellow named Bulldog happens to be there, he passes on trying to rotate the kill switch several times. I did, and it worked, got homeand messed with it somemore.Had gotten bad enough thatjusttapping the switchkills the engine.I just happen tohave a spare switch assembly so I have the fix. Wanted to pass this onif youhavethis issue itsanother place to look or you might want to testthe switch. This one didn't cross my mind since I don't use the kill switch, may have been a factor, not using it, contacts dry out or get corroded (maybe).

Yes I had the same thing happen with my 93 last summer on a trip in the Adirondack mountains. It quit three times, the first two it was momentary and the third time we were at the side of the road debating what to do when something prompted me to wiggle the kill switch- and, varoom!

When I got home I took the assembly apart and cleaned the contacts of the kill and cruise switches and no problem since.

The worst thing for switch contacts is to never use them since they are "self wiping"- and who operates their kill switch?
