1974 R75/6 starter button loose
 
Anyone have experience with this problem:

My 1974 R75/6 wirh the /5 switch gear on handle bars the starter button is loose - 2 set screws that hold it on are tight. Starter button works fine but if you touch it it wiggles around. I have had the bike for 5 years and just noticing this is there a way to tighten it up?? :ear

If you remove the two small screws and gently pull out the switch.

(Helps if you feed the wire harness into the side of the switch.)

There's a large flat head screw under the switch. This connects the housing for the 2 small screws to the whole mount.

Hope that makes sense.:huh

Thanks - I will do that fix. Just didn't know what I would find in there.:freaky

And be careful you don't tighten it too much- it is a very short thread into cast alu and can strip easy (DAMHIK). Locktite is probably a good idea.

Sounds like my headlight switch on the other side. It wouldnt get tight or would loosen up. I put some silicon in there and gently tightened it up. Has stayed in place for 4 months now just fine. I like the idea of loctite, just make sure not to get the permanent kind!
