wierd goings on

Any ideas why my brute has begun to play up when I try to start her.the normal ritual is to turn the alarm off on the fob place key in ignition turn the key and press the starter button, now I turn the alarm off place key in ignition turn the key and the bike starts immediately without pressing the starter button.Any advice or ideas will be much appreciated, thanks.

sounds like your starter switch/relay is stuck on ,try checking for continuity through the switch with a multimeter. That`s probably the easiest place to start.

Does the starter switch on the 1078 control the Sport/Normal mode like the newer bikes? If it still works for that it would eliminate the start button itself and move attention to the relay. If not, then I've learned a bit more about the 1078

Speed is relative, but fast is fast.

Only one mode on the 1078's mate, FAST mode.
