    Instructions for installing 2011 650 Exec. starter switch?

    Has anyone on here replaced the right hand starter switch module on a 650 Exe? I am having intermittent start problem and from what I read the starter switch could be the problem. I have tried cleaning it but no luck. It seems like it would be pretty simple, but I would appreciate any help.
    Thanks

    I have had to replace mine twice on my 2009 burgman. I first took it apart and sanded the contacts but it didn’t last. Best to buy a new one. Remove the cap off the center handlebar, then the apron cover, now the work begins. Mine has 3 wires: the main cable and 2 small wires. Be sure to tag the as not to get the crossed. Unplugging the and plugging them in again can be a bugger. The local cycle shop (privately owned) did it under $100 dollars labor, plus the cost of the switch. The switch and wires come as one package. I removed and replaced the cover ahead of time. Arcwing

    Along those same lines, how difficult is it to remove the cover from the handlebars? Been considering using that as a place to mount a GPS unit.

    Removing the plastic cover surrounding the bars is a tricky snap just be careful not to force them. As concerning a GPS mount I can make you one and ship it to you. About 3” squire mounts on the right over you brake reservoir cover. Works great for me. 2 screws and your done.

    I really found the the instructions for working on the bike helpful on Le Dude.

    Once you work the bottom half of the handle bar cover loose, you can get to the 2 hidden push pins. Once they are out, the top can be raised. It has two legs that straddle the handle bar pipe right in the middle that a good friction fit.
