The joys of the switch cluster

Post by Gadgetsandwheels »

After having the 2015 GSA fail on a number of things... One of which being the left hand switch cluster, I may well be having the same problem with my (now c2000 mile) RT.  After being in the garage for around 2 months over winter, the cruise control refused to work yesterday.  If it is the switch, the quality of these units must be ridiculously poor!

Historically, yes, the quality of the LH & RH switchgear on R & K Series bikes has been abysmal!! Disappointing to hear that they're still possibly playing up! :(

Looking at other Threads on the Forum, the Switch could well be the problem.

Mine stopped working early on, less than 1000 miles, & was replaced under warranty. Not good tho...
