Since I'm waiting for a new switch which is on backorder from the manufacturer I reassembled mine, did the continuity test and everything tested fine. And in the process I lost the springs that caused the switch to return to the run position which was causing the engine to die so I put it back together and started it and was able to have it run as the switch was not returning. But if I attempted to drive it that way, letting the clutch out while in gear killed it. I'm assuming because the starter motor was running continuously. But I did notice another symptom, there's a high pitch whine, an electrical type of whine, coming from under the tank. Is that off the actual starter solenoid do you think? This starts as soon as I turn the ignition to the on position and continues regardless of the position of the starter / kill switch...
Any help in this matter would be greatly appreciated thanks!
Also I have a video but can't figure out how to post it..
Let's see if this works...
