Question Cruise Control Operation

Having a few problems with the handlebar cruise control. Can somebody remind me how it normally operates?

When cruise control is active is the little red LED glowing. Does it normally go off momentarily when the SET or RES is toggle is depressed.

If you are talking about the Austrailian unit no. The red light actually is on at all times whether the cruise is on or off. Depressing set or resume should not make it go off.

hello NigelDav (Nigel?)
The cruise control needs to be switched on in the first place. If the slider switch is set to "on" then the red LED stays on at all times; this both enables cruise control to operate and, additionally allows the toggle button to be uncovered to allow the cruise to be set (from 30mph upwards to around 100mph I believe). I leave mine "on" most of the time because it's quite handy when entering (say) a long stretch of 40 mph to set the cruise to 40mph (in 4th gear) and avoid the problem is speeding !

Hope that helps.
