Yes sir, that's it. Remove both wires and tape them individually to prevent them from touching each other. When that switch goes out you simply won't be able to set your cruise control. By removing the wires, it should engage just fine. The only downside is that rotating the throttle backwards won't disengage cruise once its set. You can still disengage cruise control with either brake or the clutch lever. My switch went out a few years ago and I don't miss that switch not working at all.

??? So that switch is activated by the throttle but if it goes out then you can't set your cruise either?

Correct. That switch is the one that allows a roll-off of the throttle to disengage the cruise control. With the switch broken, the cruise control computer thinks that the throttle is ALWAYS in the roll-off position so the cruise cannot be engaged.

I am going have to remember that or write in my XR binder where I printed off the factory repair manual years ago. I rarely ever use the cruise control because I am rarely on a straight enough road to engage it. I've got a 4-lane near my house with a straight stretch that I turn it on a few times a year to test it and thats about it.

I'm having the same issue with my cruise control, I tried disconnecting these wires last night, it didn't help. I get the momentary green cruise light on the dash, but the LED on the control stays red, so I thought this was it. Does it matter if both are removed or just one? Could my switch be bad enough that it still doesn't work with both wires disconnected? I've checked all the fuses, those are good, also.

I saw in another thread about a voltage issue, but the only thing I can think of is I added the saddlebag saber lights, but those plugged right into the accessory harness going to the trunk.

I rarely use my cruise, so I'm not sure when it actually stopped working, I'm heading to Austin this evening from Dallas, for ROT rally, so I tried the cruise the other night.

If the control light stays on it should be working from my understanding?
Now I'm confused. Hopefully you get resolved soon.
