A little more info would help, like, does the 'cruise on' light illuminate on the dash when you depress the on/off switch or does the cruise fail to engage and hold speed?

You may want to check the clutch lever, front brake lever and brake pedal switches.



Minewould turn on, but wouldn't engage. Turned out the bushing that the clutchmaster cylinder actuator rod fit into had about worn out, so the wind while riding moved the lever back far enough toprevent the cruise from engaging.



Changed out the bushing and all is well.



Hope this helps.

Welcome aboard John. Most Cruise problems are handlebar switch related, as Dave suggested. If the "cruise on" light is on, spray the switches up and take a test ride.

By the way, turn your caps lock off.

Thank's for reply's yes the cruise light turns on but just does not set the speed. The bike was stood up for a year and i had to bleed the clutch. i will try the wd40 on the handle bar switch and switches. Ta

p.s Sorry i left caps lock on:?

Just a thought-- I use electrical contact cleaner spray so as to not leave any residue. You will find many go wd-40, and many go contact cleaner.
FWIW

play it again sam!!!...most of the time its the rear brake adjustment switch...gets crapped up down there.. and the clutch side-normally open switch...aft market levers might not keep this open to initiate...or a few other fun switches but are more dependable than these.
