Electrical current through levers..... ?
Posted March 09, 2010 - 07:03 PM
08 WR450F Aussie Spec.
Need some advice on where to start -
While out riding I have noticed an intermittent electrical current current going through my clutch and front brake lever (maybe the whole frame, but my hands are the only thing that feels it). I'm not sure where to start. Has this happened to anyone else? It makes it pretty difficult to feather the front brake when the current causes muscle contraction
Any help would be appreciated.

Place some electrical tape UNDER the engine cut-off switch (wrap tape around the handlebars where the kill switch mounts) and you should eliminate that problem. It happened to me on my WR400 when WOT in the desert....sucks to be "bitten" like that at high speed!
I will have to give that a try. Pretty funny, I thought it was just my bike:bonk:

If it's any consolation, my '08 has the same issue, apparently .....
it only happens (sometimes) when other people ride it believe it or not.
I have never felt it!
I put it down to damp (sweaty) gloves or something.
I've never bothered to try and fix it because, as I said, it has never happened to me!

It's definitley related to the ADR street legal kit in Aus. Not heard of this issue any where else.
Hmmmmm, could be on to something. I have a dual sport kit on my bike.
