The starter switch on my Valkyrie has been giving me trouble. I took it apart about a week ago and cleaned it up. It seemed better for a few days, but then got worse. I took it apart again, and checked to see that the plate on the slide moved freely.


...  ...  ...  ...


My camera quit on me, so I don't have any more photos. But I found that the slider had actuall melted, and the contact plate is welded into the plastic slides. I remember that Willie's Valk had the exact same problem.
I've got the tabs bent out so that it works if you know how and take it easy. The button wants to stay down if you push it too hard. It's a temporary fix. I'm going to have to order a switch.
The thing that frosts my shorts is that I don't believe yo can get just the switch. You've got to order the entire assembly. That an $80.00 part because of the failure of a $2.00 plastic switch.
