Strange Happenings with Ignition Switch ?
I got an 01 KLR with 23,000 Miles 3 weeks ago, lots of fun ! However, a strange thing happened on the way home with it the day I got it. I turned off the bike with the with the ignition switch and when I got ready to continue riding, I switched the bike on with the key hit the start button and nothing happened? I played with the key, turned it a bit harder to the right and hit the start button and it fired right up. During the past three weeks, I have ridden the bike about 500 Miles with no problems except for today. I was riding, stopped on the side of the road to rest - got ready to go - hit the start button and nothing. I did notice the headlight, blinkers, and horn all worked when I turned on the ignition, but nothing happened when I hit the start button. So I pulled the seat, checked the fuses - all good. Tried to start again - nothing, but I did notice the green neutral light would not come on. So I fiddled with the wires, speedo cluster, turned on the key on and off, and let the bike sit a bit. Then I turned on the key and noticed the neutral light was working, when to hit the start button and it fired right up. I drove the bike home made about five stops and the bike gave me no problems at all. I'm confused, Has anyone run into a problem like this before? Any suggestions would be welcomed!
