Fireblade Problem


I has exactly the same problem with my Varadero, and the problem was the button sticking (it happened to me when behind a cop car - fortunately he didn't notice!!!).  I sprayed some WD40 around the button and kept pressing it - this freed it up and solved the problem.  Might be worth a try.

Hope you get it fixed soon.

Fireblade lights!!!

Thank you both for your help, I sprayed WD40 in the switch and then kept on pressing (no joy) then i used bearing grease and cocktail stick to apply and still no joy so i think that i may just need to change the hole unit.

But once again thanks for your help and ride safe.
