Smile I ran over our LT with our motorhome(;-»)

Well, back in the middle of June we were at a small sidecar rally . I thought I had the LT/Hannigan out of the way , wile I was trying to get the motorhome parked . So I see my wife doing a Mccally collagen from left alone , you know the two hands on the face ,and a real suppressed look on her face . I thought something must be up ... So I stopped ..., and go to the side door . But I can't get out the door , because the LT/Hannigan is stuck to the side of the motorhome . Then the motorhome starts rolling forward , so run back to the drivers seat and get it stooped ( it stopped just before it ran over someone's pop up camper ) .( In my excitement I didn't get it all the way into park .)

I thought I took the hole side off the LT , But somehow I only knocked the mirror off ,and bent clutch handle . It didn't do anything to the rest of the bike ( or the motorhome ). But I did brake part of the clutch control off & bend the handle , also one of the switches on the clutch control stooped working . There are 2 switches on the clutch one for the cruse control & one for the starter safety . It was the starter safety switch that went .

Well , I got a used clutch master cyl. off a 2005 with the 2 micro switches left on it . And so I started to take the bike apart to change it out today , and do the annual service on the bike as long as it has it's dress off . (;-»)

So I would like to ask this question , were do the other end of the wires from the 2 switches plug in at ? I can't find it anywhere on the sight Thanks ...Patric ...

It's not as bad as this guy that wanted to captain his new submarine.

I wonder how they explained to Auto Club that they need a tow truck driver with scuba gear.

Good thing he stopped when he saw water up at the windshield.

As for Patric's original question, I don't have my schematic with me, but I think the wires go all the way to the relay box under the gas tank. I remember some thing about having to pull the tank to replace a handlebar switch assembly.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
