How to strip and clean the start button and kill switch.

Postby yorkie » Sat Jun 13, 2009 8:42 pm

If you cant see the pictures click on the blank image not the CLICK

Lately I've notice that I've had to dab the start button a couple of times before the engine will start, so I stripped it today and cleaned it up, SORTED =D> .

I also took pictures and have now done the usual picture guide, because I know some folk like myself can't read, because were in the National Dyslexic Association, or DNA for short. :D

This is a C model If your doing an E/F1 the plugs and wiring are different more of, as is the F2 but less of.
The extra red wire in the pictures is a shorting link, as the standard wire which is still in place, goes out into the main loom and back into the switch :| :?: , the link mod is there to help prevent dirty loom pin wiring problems.

These pictures are for a zx12 but the internals are the same. I did a resistance check and found the contacts were giving 20 to 50 Ohms so they really needed cleaning as they would of caused problems.

Just got yourself a ZX-9R, then do your bike, and yourself a favour, read this thread. viewtopic.php?f=21&t=28097

Please will forum members put their bike model letter, & 1 or 2 after their Profile Location. eg: Your Town & B1,2,3,4 C1,2 E1,2 F1,2
As all zx9's are all slightly different, and I get fed up having to ask which model & number, as year may not be accurate.

i have the r/h switchgear at home with me to inspect further.i tested it in the workshop and the start button is not working,it wasn't working on the bike and after testing the relay i then decided to test the switchgear.i tested for continuity and there isn't any so i'm going to try this tonight and see if it works.

according the haynes manual though the two wires that go to the switch are black/red but this is not the case.on my switchgear one wire is black and the other is blue/white.and looking at your pic it appears to be the same as mine.strange one that.

If you have a wiring diagram you will notice that the stop switch wire comes into the switch and back out into the main loom again, only to return to the start button.
The extra wire is a shorting link from the output of the stop switch to the input of the start button. This reduces the risk of a voltage drop to the stick coils from dirty pins in the right handle bar switching loom plugs.
I only put it in because I had wire and the switching unit open and it seemed a shame not to.
