By-pass stop switch on side stand.
« on: May 15, 2011, 09:17:08 PM »
Has anyone bypassed the cut-off on the side stand. Pretty hard to stop and kick down the stand and not shut off the motor but SOMETIMES it may be nice to be able to start the bike with it down - kick for example ::"" :-\

i think all your switches and sensors should have a  embedded MAC address that way if the CPU doesn't get a answer in the startup config file you u don't get a start....that will take care of you bypassing anything..serves you guys right for not staying old school with the rest of us... ;D :o

RE in India sells 4 or 5 models of these 'new' bikes (UCE bikes) with carb. Still old school for the most part.  Only one model C500 is with ECU in India.

Its easy to disconnect your side stand switch. It's also easy to end up as a hood ornament because you left your sidestand down.

+1.  I did this a while ago to eliminate it as a potential problem while debugging something.  I like being able to warm it up on the side stand to much I never put it back.  Keep in mind, you are disabling a safety feature.

There is a connector just above the side stand near the frame that connects side stand switch.  Unplug it.  Then wrap the connectors in tape or shrink tube to protect from dust.  Tie it to the frame with a twist tie.  Here is a picture -

I never understood how people can drive away with it down.  Hop on, straighten up, and sidestand up. 

I didn't mind my old Yamaha's switch which would shut off the engine when it was put in gear with the sidestand down, but to not let it start at all?  That's pointless.  Still, I left it connected for a while.

Then one day I couldn't get it started.  I gave the sidestand the slightest of upward pushes, and it fired right up.  I disconnected the damn thing the next day.  If it's going to "save me" when the stand isn't even down, I don't want it at all, especially if it's going to activate intermittently on some bumpy road somewhere.

I grew up with out safety switches. 
 Forgetting to put the stand up when taking off or down when parking resulted in a lesson learned,,,,once. ;)
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

I've never owned a motorcycle that had a safety sidestand switch, or a clutch safety .

I have never forgot to put the side stand up ...yet either.

My Ducati was the same and I thought it a good idea.  This way you can warm it up on the sidestand but still won't ride away with it down.

     Sometimes I feel like everybody out there now is suffocating by being buried in "safety switches" in all aspects of life. Kids are afraid of EVerything nowadays 'cause the government & the schools & their parents tell them to be. I survived my whole life with my safety switches almost all internal to my brain & the first thing that came off the Enfield was that that silly kickstand switch. Next was the headlight jumper. I'm not disturbed by the clutch switch (yet). I don't use the electric start.
