Hi guys,
due to my recent thread concerning two sudden power losses, I set about cleaning the ignition switch, along with all other connectors.

The small set screw would not budge, therefore I had to drill the head off.

You can guess the next sentence...

I bulldozed through the plastic threaded tang on the white housing..

The switch contacts now cleaned and greases, the switch works as it should.

The damage to the white housing means the indent track that the position ball bearing runs in has a small hole in it.

Although not sufficient for the ball bearing to fall out , but  I have no way to secure the switch halves together without bonding it . This is not something I prefer as any future removal would be interesting.

Has anyone else done this or am I the only numpty ....

Or...

has anyone out there in the uk got a box of ignition switch bits with a spare white housing..

 or a better way to secure the two halves with permanently bonding them

Thanks for any replies

Bob

Is This what you are after?  Came off my 1991 K100RS 16v. Wires have been cut, but can be spliced very easily.
Let me know.

The oldest of the Ducatis that we have, it is 50 this year and as soon as I have the French registration sorted it will be used as an everyday bike.

 If I cannot find one  then super glue will have to do.

Thanks anyway

Hello!

The ignition switch he is looking for is 8V yours on the picture is for a 16V K 1100 or a K100 16V. Totally different.

Cheers

Just what I said in the post above yours.
It is the only one that I have so it was worth offering.
