PostSubject: Clutch lever switch plug won't seat   Wed Mar 30, 2016 9:59 pm

I was putting on a new clutch lever and I noticed the clutch wire plug sticking out. I tried pushing it in and it just slides out. It's not seating at all. How does it seat? It looks like a notch on the end but there is nothing to seat it on. I've tried twisting it and moving it around but it will not seat. Could the switch plug be broke in some way? I tried looking it up in the service manual but it says nothing about the clutch switch plug ..... I'm stumped. Any help would be appreciated.

Yes, it is supposed to slide in with a little tab that clicks into place and keeps it put.
Sounds like yours is broken.

Thanks for the responses. I found a picture of the switch and how it seats in the service manual. Somehow I managed to break off the tab so I'll just order a new one.

Looks like yamaha is backordered on the clutch switch. Any trick solutions to do until I get the new clutch switch? What about using tape to hold the switch in or some other trick?

You can ditch the switch by removing it and cutting the wires off, either leaving the wires unhooked or twisting them together.
Im not sure which, try it with the wires unhooked, if it starts in gear your good, if not twist the wires together. thumb

Not on the wrr, that switch still works good on mine, but I had to do it to my race quad and KLR650, I twisted the wires together on those ones to get em to start in gear.

The small plastic tab to release the clutch switch is on the underside of the clutch lever housing. Loosen the housing and rotate it along with the clutch lever so that you can see the tab. Depress it with a small flat bade screwdriver and gently pull it out of the housing. I do not recommend bypassing the clutch safety switch by cutting off the malfunctioning switch and connecting the two wire ends. If you do the bike will start in gear without depressing the clutch. You might be in for a big unwelcome surprise.

Yeah bypassing the switch is like 6 of one and half dozen of another when it comes to good and bad things that can happen.

While you could start the bike in gear it is also pretty convenient when you need help pushing the bike out of a mud puddle.
