Hi all. A good ride yesterday up to Abergaveny, a round trip of about 180 miles. However, I had a small problem after a coffee stop. When trying to restart the bike, turning the key there was no ingnition/oil light, in fact nothing apart from parking and hazard warning lights. After turning the key a few times and checking that the kill switch was in the correct position and every thing else that I could think of eventually the speedo lights came on and she fired up. Has anyone had this problem and how was it resolved. This has happened three times now. HELP!!!!

Hi Pete, Sounds like a good ride out, certainly had  the weather for it,  first things of check would be the side stand switch and connections and the kill switch and connections, clean them and a dab of Vaseline, then see how it goes?.

IGNITION 428386 to Sim's comments, remember to include checking contacts on starter switch when looking for clean connections/contacts.
WD40, or similar, can be useful to clean plunger switches (such as side stand trip switches)

This will definitely be a bad connection, sounds like ignition barrel contacts to me. I would say the contacts at the rear of the barrel need cleaning, to give them a proper connection & then slapping some Vaseline on them to keep them good.

Hi Sim.   I have taken the kill switch apart, seems pretty clean, removed the side stand switch which is a sealed unit and used WD40 around the plunger. I will be buying a tin of electrical cleaner and working this into the ignition barrel soon. As this is a problem that only happens now and again I feel that it could take a little time to sort out.
