    /5 handlebar controls

    We have a72 /5 with bad handlebar switches (both sides) looking to purchase or repair both switches. I think Iíve tried every outlet in the states. Help.

    Are you talking about parts 61 31 1 351 219 and -220? Benchmark Works has them listed on their website...I don't know about availability.

    There are some used part places shown in that section in the link in my signature line. Internally they aren't that complicated, although they could be quite fiddley to work on. I believe the suggestion is to work inside a large plastic bag so that the small bits don't jump for freedom.

    Thanks

    I have 2 problems. The left switch is worn out and the right switch has the wires soldiered to the terminals

    Check with Tom Cutter at Rubber Chicken Racing Garage in PA. He usually has them in stock.

    Switches

    Available from your dealer as well! $90 or so. Not worth the hassle of trying to fix a switch that old besides being a PIA to fix!

    I checked the dealer fiche for availability, now listed as NA. So best to check other vendors or e-bay.
