That would seem to be a fix only at the cost of eliminating the throttle roll off cruise cancel feature. This is a feature I like. On the highway or higher speed non-highway where I have the cruise engaged, I prefer to not press the brake to cancel the cruise since this flashes the brake lights and can cause a bit of havoc to the vehicles behind me which are often other bikes. I lead a lot of small to medium size groups on rides.

The problem is clearly in the throttle/idle cable switch. More specifically, it is in the adjustment of this switch and/or the position/tightness of the idle cable. Before I took the step of permanently eliminating the throttle roll off cruise cancel feature, I would plan to monkey around with the adjustments on these cables.

Then something is wrong.

The DEC should work just like ACC function, just opposite.

That switch is the one weak link in my CCT cruise control as well but I hated it. I rest my hands on the grips on long trips and bumps in the road cause my hands to disengage the cruise. Was glad it stopped working. I unplugged it and have never had an issue since. It will likely continue to give you grief over time. I was told by the vic tech that if it was his he would disconnect it because he sees alot problems with them

My bad. Decel not decrease. Ps- rode my newly tuned magnum 10 hours today to my folks. Strong crosswinds, 4 hours of light but steady rain and temps from 48 to 68. Performed like a dream! Passed everyone easily in 5th

My hand brake micro switch wasn't activating the brake lights today but it was disengaging the cruise. A quick shot into the switch with some CRC Contact Cleaner and all is well again. The first time that happened, I ordered a new switch. I need to remember to service the switch more often as it seems to be susceptible to getting dirty.

Like Reelmin, I've never heard a respected tech unofficially suggest replacing the inline throttle roll back cruise control switch. It's simply a known weak link/failure item. But it can also be replaced and hopefully the replacement switch is of better quality than the original one. Mine lasted over 5 years of service, which IMHO, is a very poor service life. I've had similar switches on old FIAT cars that were still working fine after 25 years. If throttle roll off cruise disengagement is important to you, the only option is to replace the switch.

My throttle cables were adjusted 48K miles ago by Rylan Vos when he installed a Lloyds 1/4 turn throttle ring. Once the throttle cables are adjusted correctly, I'm here to report they'll be fine for a very long time. I've replaced my handlebars twice in that 48K mile span and they're still perfectly adjusted. Therefore since disconnecting the switch allowed the cruise to function, the throttle cable adjustment 'may' be correct.

All the best,

Mark

It would make sense to me that rolling forward on the throttle would turn off the cruise but not activate the brake lights.

I'll have to try mine. I always cut it off by the button or tapping the brake.

My clutch lever microswitch is a little sticky. If I tighten the two tiny screws to the point where I think they should be tightened, the plunger in the microswitch will not pop back out after it has been depressed. I would like to lubricate this plunger. I don't think the microswitch can be disassembled. The two halves appear to be glued together. Does anyone have advice on a suitable lubricant to use and should I just apply this to the portions of the plunger that are visible?

G'day,

Vinish

This is what it does.
