On the weekend I was having some trouble starting my BC. At the beginning of the day it started no problem but a few times after stoping it wouldn't go. Hit the rer button & it would start clicking but no fire. I would get off the rer, play with kill switch a couple of times and then it might start clicking again or starter would role over but no fire. I would play with the kill button again & usually on the 3rd time it would start.

This worked most of day except once when we stopped for gas, I tried the rer, play with kill switch routine for about 5 min but it wouldn't fire. So I walked away for about 5min came back & it fired no problem. We were on the way back to the trailers So I didn't turn my machine off for the rest of day for fear of it not starting again. When we got home & unloaded it fired no problem & has been starting with no problems since.

I'm a little stumped, any ideas?

Dirty or wet cap on tether ? Or moister in the kill switch or dirty .....shoot some contact cleaner on both . Make sure the wireing harness plugs for the steering pod is seated and tight . Look for wires near the stearing colum that could be damaged . Did you install a different riser to the handle bars ?

I believe it's the stock 6" riser (bought is used this yr). Only electrically changes I've made is to add a wiring harness for my electric shield and heated riser bag.

I'll try the contact cleaner.

Had starting issues again this weekend. Thanks to helpful sledder (I had stopped on the trail to help pull him out of a deep hole) I now know the source of my starting issue.

The starter would turn over & starter wheel would spin but not engage the primary. After giving it a pry with a screw driver & trying the electric start again the starter wheel would engage the primary & start. Had to do this a few times over the day.

Now I need to figure out a fix. Is it lubrication issue or something else? Has anyone else had a similar issue?

Try carrying a small can of lock De-icer to spray in and around the starter gear!
