REBUILDING THE IGNITION SWITCH ON A VN750REASON:My 1991 Vn750 developed a "dead spot" in the ignition switchwhich would cause the dash lights to flicker or go out completely.For two years I lived with this problem and temporarily solvedit each time it would occur by slightly turning the key towardsthe off position. It worsened to the point where the defective switchwould cause the bike to begin stalling - something had to be done. Anew switch is about 70 bucks, plus I didn't want to have todeal with having to re-key my bike.TOOLS REQ'D:10mm socket/drive or nut driver13mm wrench12mm wrench#2 phillips screwdrivermedium sized jewelers scredriver6mm Hex driver/hex key/allen wrenchcontact cleanersmall needle nosed pliersPROCEDURE:1.
