well! i was able to locate and disconnect the kill-switch on the cupcake. bikes starts first kick not. so i think that is a good sign my switch was going bad. all i broke was the genuine emblem on the from of the horn cast. not bad for no mechanically inclination at all! was going to play with the neutral fuse but when i called John at Urban Moto he said it is behind the spare tire and to bring it in and he would replace the entire unit. i want to do it! i just need some instruction. that was totally fun. but i need a shower now. i am dripping and dirty! *wink wink*
i am going to go out to the garage and attempt to disable the kill-switch to the cupcake as a first step in diagnosing the sudden death problem that is getting worse. wish me luck.
