Has the clutch safety switch been bypassed? - Does the bike start without the clutch pulled in? if so replace the clutch safety switch, most common cause of the Cruise not working, Remember that you must be in 5th gear, clutch & break levers out, foot off the break pedal, throttle twist grip not below idle - into the spring loaded portion below idle (There is a switch in there to turn the cruise to standby), The cruise switch on the right switch block is on. Any more than this, refer to and join the email group.

I'm having fuel problems. Does the cavalcade have an electric fuel pump? Best way to check it out.

Yes. It is located under the right (sitting on the bike) below the seat. The fuel fitler is located there as well. Remove the seat and forward rear wheel guard portion that is under the seat. The fuel pupm can be operated by pressing the starter button only, if your clutch safety switch has not been bypassed. If it has, then the starter wil operate (and your cruise control will never operate) Pressing the starter only, allows you to "Prime" the carbs to fill the fuel bowls up proir to starting.
