I purchased and installed a set of ASV F3 levers about a year and a half ago. Im asking because i haven't ridden in a long time and im just getting my bike up to spec to get back on the road. I didn't notice a difference in the bike after installation. Are there any negatives to not having the clutch lever switch activated?

it just means that if your bikes in gear and the kickstand is up it will start.

clutch lever switch? as in an electric switch on your lever? or are you referring to the red adjuster?
ugh, i know what the red adjuster is for... :facepalm:


Thanks F_iT23 and crash277! ! was just concerned it might be tied into the ecm.

Not quite...

To get it to all run properly you need to cut the green / red wire (pin 27) on the grey plug of the ecu and wire the ecu side of it to ground. Then just leave the switch unplugged at the bars and the wires disconnected.

If you don't you can have issues with the idle... if you just wire the two together you can have issues with roadworthy and its not exactly safe to have a bike that will start itself in gear and the clutch not pulled in...

What else does the switch acctuate then? The exhaust valve? To add a little info to the mix, i do have a bazzaz with afr. I never noticed an issue but i would like to make sure the bike is 100% up to par. Im not so worried about the clutch being engaged. It is a natural habbit of mine to pull the clutch on start up.

Other than the starting bit, the clutch switch only affects the idle as far as I'm aware... the exhaust valve is based on rpm.

Thanks Nico. Im wondering if it may affect the timing? I used to have an Audi A6 and when you depressed the clutch pedal you could hear the sound of the engine change a bit. Never researched the cause but i think it was pulling a few degrees of ignition timing to smooth out the transition of shifting gears.

Any other input out there?
