Default Re: Ignition switch problems

Sticky clutch switch sounds like a good explanation. I prefer starting without the clutch anyway, except for those mornings when I forget to take it out of gear and it lurches forward a bit

It's supposedly better for the thrust bearings in the engine, since the clutch puts an axial load on the crank when the engine is cold and less lubricated. Probably doesn't make much of a difference though.
