2015 cruise control problem
« on: May 20, 2019, 03:32:36 PM »
Hi, my 2015 xca cruise control is not working. I've traced it to a faulty on /ff microswitch on controls on throttle twist grip side.   Anyone know where i can get one. I'm considering just soldering in the switch locally rather than rerunning cable under tank etc.  Anyone else had this problem?

Where's Maplins when you need them.  :003:

What sort of mileage/use of the cc have you done for that to pack up ?

The micro switches used to be a bit of a weakness on the old Tiger 1050 scroll function for the OBC.

Any markings on the removed switch?

If it's just the switched that turns CC on/Off as opposed to the engage/disengage could you not just solder two wires together and have CC on but not engaged?

That's my thought. Way back in 2012 I took the front brake switch apart on my Explorer. Looks to use the same switch on the throttle roll-forward switch as posted by the OP, and has some ID marking on it.

Failing that, just dismantle the faulty switch and give a it a good clean & test. Just be wary of tiny springs flying out as you prise it apart!  :156:

Thanks for all replies. Yes , there are markings on it. Followed up with alps and some electronic outfits with no success.  At present I just shorted the wires and put bike back together. Not tried it yet as im changing tyres and brake pads also at the moment. There is only 6000 miles on the bike. Cruise control hardly used.

Assuming (but I'm not certain)  this microswitch is used to cut off  the cruise control if the throttle grip is rolled closed, it is just an added safety feature, because your brake and clutch switches will also cause cut-off of the CC. You could get by without it. The test to do though, is to determine whether it is a normally open or normally closed switch. Wired as inactive,  you could continue to use you CC, albeit without the throttle cut-off.
Laterally unstable unless moving.

bike back together. works fine probably for the first time since I bought it. Roads around here are not long and straight.  Button is shorted so now on permanently. all safety features work including throttle

Good to know, as my 2015 XRx doesn't work either.
