That sidestand switch, and the switch that prevents it from starting in gear without the clutch in were the first 2 things I removed from my bike, right after buying it. I have removed them from every bike I've ever owned that had them, with the exception of my Vino 125, which is automatic, with no neutral, and you can't leave it in gear on the sidestand. Now if there were just some way of removing that positive neutral finder, so I could get it into second gear to push start it if necessary, since Kawasaki did not see fit to provide a kickstarter.
