Re: Tip over cut off switch
Nope, no tip over switch on LT's that I know of. However, owned a 1990 GW and it did have one. It was effectively a mercury switch kind of like what's in the older home thermostats. When the bike exceeded an unnatural angle from the vertical the switch would open the ignition circuit and the engine would shut off. Problem was that it was too sensitive and every time I rode over a big bump or rough railroad track the engine would die! I put a jumper around the switch on my bike to solve the problem. Later on Honda had a recall to replace the switch.
