Simple is always best. My life is simpler without that side stand switch, & the jumper cable in the headlight wiring that prevents you controlling YOUR PROPERTY. (NUTS to DOT)
............. It appeared the crown had a high spot in it which caused the kill switch not to close and open properly at times. Thus, no electrical power.A little grinding with the Dremel Tool on the crown of the side stand took care of the problem.
...........I long for the days I could mount a horse, destroy a dragon and no one nagging about my health 'n safety.
This switch is a poor design and should be replaced as a recall by RE and a properly designed replacement installed free of charge by RE dealers. If this was a car this would probably already have happened!In a car, it was called an ignition switch. It's taken them 10 years or so to start recalling them!Bare
All this nanny stuff just annoys me. I bought a new aluminum step ladder at Home Depot last year, and it had about 20 warning stickers on it. Took me a couple of hours to get them off. All it really needed was one sticker "If you don't know how to properly use this ladder, DON'T" When I was a kid, I could never have imagined that things would go this far.
