Funnily enough since this post in Jan 2016 mine had been OK until a few weeks ago when it stopped working again. This time it felt like it was clogged up, no positive feel when pressing up/down. A quick squirt of WD40 and all was OK with a nice little click when pressing.

I havnt had an issue with the select switch, but today I noticed my indicator switch is not working correctly....when I try to cancel it feels like the spring is not as strong and doesn't return fully.
My bike has 1400miles and I've only washed it once, it's never got wet otherwise, I'd be surprised if it's corroded in any way!

Yep!
I think itís their lube too.
Had the same problem with the ignition switch the first cold damp day I took the bike out. Put the key in but it wouldnít turn. After about ten minutes the heat from the engine permeated up through and the key turned. Went home, gave it a liberal dose of WD and Iíve never had a problem since

My BMW always used to have a mode switch that would stick each spring. Once it hit 60 degrees, the issue went away. And here I thought I wouldn't have to worry about that anymore, lol.
