Thanks for the heads-up bigbird. I may go back and reconnect my sidestand kill switch even though it hasn't given me any trouble (yet). scratch

I have the side stand safety switch modification. Not going to remove it until I get an inkling there may be a problem.

Now Bigbird has identified a potential problem I will monitor. At the moment I have had no symptoms. The spade connector I have fitted was a very tight fit so am quite confident! (As I type.) Rolling Eyes

Agree with you, I am fortunate being an ex aviator, checks prior to driving/riding away are currently habitual. I wasn't aware I was actually doing them until whilst car sharing a work colleague pointed out what I did.

When I alight or park the car I return all switches to their 'null' position or off.

Always better to err on the side of safety.

I don't think much about it because I nearly always use the center stand. Seems the bike wants to tip over too easily on the side stand. My checklist includes making sure my backpack is properly secured because I almost drove off one time with it just sitting on the passenger seat... OOPS! Shocked

I'm quite confident I could rectify the problem and continue using the bypass. However, after riding all day yesterday with 3 other guys in the same age category, it seemed that every time we stopped one guy or another would forget to do something in regards to his apparel or bike when getting back underway. None of them had side stand bypasses. Sooner or later I know I will drive away with the side stand down. It's just a matter of time. Between the helmet down and locked, gloves on, parking brake off, and side stand up, that's a long checklist for each departure. By eliminating the side stand up from the checklist, at least I can drive away without doing major damage to me or the bike by the time I realize I've missed something.
I'm not preaching at all, but just saying I don't want to be a bigger risk taker than I already am.

Old Age wouldn't have anything to do witj this? That's my excuse

thought about removing SS safety switch long ago,,,but decided against it...thinking about it again! (I like the idea of having it only start if the parking brake is on!)
but think it would only be a good idea if I remove the side stand all together!
