The trigger button on my 2015 FLHTK stopped working. Has anyone else experienced any issues with the trigger button or any other buttons on the Rushmore Touring bikes?

It is on the top of the left switch housing. It is used to cycle through the odometer menu and is also used to start the diagnostic menu.

At least you know where/what it is. I rode for two months and couldn't figure out how to toggle my screen back to normal ODO. LOL

Hence the acronym RTFM.

But just to out do you. I knew where it was in June and used it several times. An then forgot where it was in August and had to go back and RTFM.

But I did have fun with a friend who was thinking about upgrading from a Softtail to a Street Glide. He was sitting on my bike and I was showing him the electronic goodies. I had my left hand resting on the button. I told him the Odo change was voice activated and said change Odo and it magically changed. I never did get around to telling him otherwise and he just bought a SGS a couple of weeks ago. I can't wait to watch him yell at his bike.

After the test ride on my Street Bob, I told the salesman it was a great bike, but I found it highly unusual that it didn't have a tachometer. He reached over and demonstrated how the switch for the LCD tach worked. I was amazed. (I had been away from the motorcycle scene for a very long time, mind you.)

I took it back to the dealer and they replaced the switch assembly, they also had to trim away some of the grip where it fits inside the switch housing to when tightening the housing it will come together without any gaps and without the horn button binding.

This is great info to have. I was about to switch mine for the black Get-A-Grip units that I kept when I traded the RGC... Thank you!

Just so there is no confusion here are two pictures. One picture is of my "Trigger Switch", the other is a picture from my owners manual.

Here is a post I wrote for someone asking questions about installing grips on their 2015 Road Glide.

I have a 15 Ultra Limited and had the dealer put on Slipstream heated grips, love them! First off, as previously mentioned, get the HD service manuals! Secondly, you are going to need to purchase the electrical connection kit P/N 69200722 if you are buying the heated grips. Lastly, the left grip is glue less, regardless of heated or non heated, the end of the grip closest to the switch is shaped to fit inside the switch housing so when everything is tightened (switch housing, clutch lever) the grip is snug and won't move, now to the problem. When tightening the the switch housings to torque specs you may end up with a gap where the front housing meets the rear housing, if you tighten more to try to eliminate that gap, you will find that your horn button becomes jammed and you may damage the internal wiring of the switch assembly. Yesterday I had to take my bike in and have the switch assembly replaced, warranty item, because the trigger switch witch is on top of the left left switch housing, stopped working, I was told that it probably wasn't due to over tightening of the switch housing but probably a defect, I think it was from over tightening. What the dealer had to do to get the switch housings to fit properly was trim down the inside of the left grip where it fits in the groove of the switch housing so the two pieces fit together with no gaps, do not trim off too much, you don't want that grip moving. I would remove the housings from the handle bar and put them together on the grip to see if there is an issue before installing the grip. Get the service manual, it was $48 from Kutter Harley Online. If you have any questions, ask! Good Luck!
