Self inflicted wound should be painful.
I can break it better,,,,at night, in the rain, on the trail,, 20 miles from nowhere.

Just a quick update.
Indian customers do not get a side stand switch. Its just the clutch s/w.
I tried pulling mine off but if you do that the bike wont start.
Which means Ive got to short a few wires to by-pass it.
So just plugged it back on.
At least now I know whats causing it. So if it cuts or the starter button feels dead. I just pump the clutch a few times and it fires up. My Fuel sensor is still shot. And Im still waiting for the up turned exhaust to land up at the dealer.
The stock Exhaust is absurdly restrictive. And this is with a single cat con.

Agreed.
If I had any of that stuff on my bike, it would be yanked-off there by morning.

This is one of the reasons that Old Brit bikes appeal to me - They are NOT made for some soft-handed mamby-pamby whose only requisite for owning a motorcycle is the ability to write a big check. You CAN start it in gear, you CAN ride off with the sidestand down, you CAN let the clutch out and take off because there is no neutral light .... It takes a MOTORCYCLIST to operate one! I had some gnarly skate punk walk up to me on the Norton in a parking lot when I was starting it and say "Cool, dood - That's one of those old bikes that you have to pump up before ride it ....." I about bit the end of my tongue off to keep from laughing at the youngster .....
Spare the pig iron - spoil the part!

Perspective, I guess.
I laughed when someone pointed at the bicycle pedal on my kicker and asked what that paddle was for.  Yet- I can't do much with one of these picture boxes besides answer e-mail and read forums.

I'm right there with ya on that, Ernie. The computer is a tool to me - not a toy. I use what I have to get it DONE .... then get away. Posting here is the closest that I'll come to "recreation" - that and I'm hopelessly addicted to the oh-so-cute-pictures on LOLcats .... Perspective indeed!
