The front brake lever operates the two sensors,one is for the cruise cancel, and the other is for the brake lights when you squeeze the lever. I can get the cruise to work by pushing out on the lever,if I let go, the cruise cancels as it should. I was told its because of the after market lever.Question is if I buy a Honda lever will it fix the problem of pushing out on the lever to make the cruise work?

Thanks

JB

You can put tape on the area where the switches contact the lever. Might have to layer it.
Stock lever should fix it.

Yes, it is because of the aftermarket levers not making proper contact.

Here is a cheap and effective solution that bypasses the CC micro switch that still allows the CC to function as normal. IE, when you apply the front brake, the CC cancels (assuming your front brake lever still activates the brake light)

Depending on the age of the bike ...or maybe how much you ride, what I have found is the problem was a brass bushing that wears down aftertime.

this link takes you to a finche diagram of the clutch lever of the wing...item #2 has been what i have replaced and it fixes the issue! No more needing to "push" the clutch lever to engage the cruise control. Cost is about $6.00



(I am also using aftermarket levers)
