K1300 Cruise Control

Has anyone else had trouble with the K1300 Cruise control? A buddy had one that failed and my selector switch fell off. Is there a general recall or is it just being ingnored?

Never had a problem with the cruise control. I use it all the time.

That is one part of the switchgear which hasn't failed. The selector lever feels pretty flimsy, but I haven't managed to snag it on something or break it off. The cruise is a really nice feature of this bike and holds speed exactly.

The cruise control stopped working on mine, it's one of the signs that there is faulty switchgear fitted, mine was replaced immediately under warranty.

I'm living proof of the old adage "the older I get the faster I was"

There are 2 switches in (at the back of) the clutch lever, one is to prevent starting the bike with the side stand out, the second lower one) is for cruise control (will disable cc if clutch is depressed). If this switch is faulty, it may disable the cruise control.

I have known of an occurrence where changing the lever ended up bending the switch.

Hope that helps
