Reverse button got stuck on reverse

My first problem today with my new to me 2002 Goldwing. The reverse button got stuck on the reverse position and it took me a good 2 or 3mns pushing on this button to get it of the reverse position. I was afraid that I was going to get stuck forever on this parking space. I noticed the same problem with the cruise control button that gets stuck on the ON position. Would spraying WD40 on the buttons help? What do you folks suggest?
Thanks

I've never used anything but WD-40 on my sticking switches. It certainly worked for my Starter/ Reverse button and my radio volume Up/Down handlebar toggle. Can't hurt and it may cure.

Lee, for now.

Unlike my musical friend, I use an electrical contact cleaner. Then blow out loosen dirt and crud with some canned air.

Well I sprayed contact cleaner and then some canned air and now the reverse button does not stay on when I press on it. It looks like the reverse and cruise control buttons mechanism inside is not operating properly either because it is broken or worned out. Is this button assembly on the left side easily removable and or replacable?

Ok, try the WD-40 now.

Parallel universe, alpac. " liflyboy " has similar issues over on this thread. You two should team up: Cruise Control Switch won't stay in

Lee, for now.

@alpac here is a schematic breakdown of sorts on the controls. What you need to do to access the switches is take out the screws on the bottom (21/22) that will split the control, then you will have to disconnect things and further disassembly is required to get to the switch and remove it (19,12,23,8). Once you get the switch out you may be able to separate it (at least on the 1500 you can), and then that will get you to the inner workings of the switch itself.

It's a bit of a trying task but one that is chock full of accomplishment when completed.

Pay little attention to the two posters prior.

alpac, definitely report back here with what you find.
My 07 has had the cruise control button stuck on for years. I tap the brakes or the clutch to disable the cruise.
