    Sticking red engine start/stop switch.

    Has anyone tried removing from the bars the combined red engine start/stop switch as mine doesn't spring back following starting the engine ?

    I am sure it just needs cleaning and lubricating, but I am wary if I open the switch it's contents, springs etc. might fly out. I have tried WD40 down the sides of the switch but with no improvement.

    Yes, its a known issue. Possible the plastic parts expanding somehow, as lubing etc doesn't help

    If it's a known issue how come my dealer knows nothing about it? I'm the fIrst of his customers to have this problem and now Robin is his second.

    You don't have to live with it take it back if the bike is still under warranty and keep taking it back until it is put right.

    New starter switch fitted this morning under warranty, whilst there I looked at the 2017 09s no demo's as yet just display bikes, rather fancy a new one but will have to see what deal can be done.
