Clutch switch stopped working

Iíve just changed my levers over to fully adjustable versions.
I was VERY particular to compare the exact profiles of the standard levers against the new before fitting.
But a few days ago I noticed that when I stalled and tried to restart by just pulling in the clutch that nothing happened!
What did I do wrong? How does the switch operate?

Check the clutch inhibitor switch. It is affected by some aftermarket levers.

There is a hump on some levers that prevents the lever from contacting the micro switch. I had to grind a bit off the lever to make mine work.

Yeh see what you mean. The hump around the lever adjustment pivot was fouling on the bulge in the mirror/switch mounting screw. Simply slackening and moving the mirror mount 1/4Ē inboard solved the problem.

I cannot give you exact info. I know the levers that I obtained needed a slight bit filing off to make the switch work, as have others. You really need to compare the originals with the ones you are to fit. Sorry I can't be of much more help. If in doubt just purchase OEM parts. They are guaranteed to fit.
