    Ignition switch replacement

    My switch is getting kind of weird and concerned it may go out on me unexpectedly.

    I found a 2016 post about a WEMOTO plug and play switch. I looked it up and it is still available.

    Has anyone tried one recently that can vouch for this part?

    EMGO is another good US supplier of ignition switches.

        I have one on order, it’s currently in Fla. customs. So far as I can tell, it’s a direct replacement for the OEM. I’ll report my findings when it arrives…

          some other search resources show it as a Revere switch, so not sure it is going to work on the Hawk but hopefully it does. Not a cheap solution but if it comes with a key and works that would be great. A couple of my bikes just need an igniton switch due to having modified subframes and afermarket gas caps. Please post back with the results!

            This was a reply from Parc concerning the OEM Hawk pigtails. As soon as mine arrives, I’ll let you know if it’s proper.

              Thanks everyone for the replies....This site is the best! $62 does not seem like a lot to fix the problem.

                When you come down to it, $62 for all I’ve put into my bike is chicken feed. Let’s hope it’s the correct piece…

                  Well, I finally rec'd the ignition switch from WeMoto. It's not the proper piece. I contacted them and there appears to be a packaging snafu and they are working to get me the correct switch. I'll continue to keep you posted on my findings.

                  First pic is what I need (and what they do have), pic 2 is what I rec'd. They've been very prompt with their communications.

                      UPDATE:

                      Wemoto has identified a mix up in parts/labels and are working to correct the issue. They are shipping me a replacement piece at no charge and told me to just keep the incorrect switch as shipping it back would be costly. I am thus far very satisfied w/their support, I'll update again once the replacement part arrives...

                        I really appreciate the update. If they come through They have another sale coming their way.

                          Well, this was totally unexpected! I contacted Wemoto on Monday and the part arrived from the UK today. All indications are it’s the correct part. Box says Taiwan, but isn’t everything these days? Time will tell.

                          These guys know customer service. I highly recommend dealing with them.
