Reading this thread reminded me that I need to check my sidestand switch.
Leaving work a few days ago I pushed the bike vertical while sitting on it, fired it up and pulled on my gloves while it warmed for half a minute or so.
Shifted into gear and just started to move off when I realized the stand was still down as I had not followed my usual practice of kicking it up into the raised position immediately after taking the bike`s weight off of it.
I was half way down the 1/4 mile driveway to the main road before I realized the engine should have died when I shifted into gear.
I guess a guy needs to consciously check these safety switches once in a while to be sure they are working.

|slimvulcanrider||i meant when there are problems with it... mine broke long before I got my bike. and I never worried about "Fixing" it.. then rewired my bike to bypass all the stupid safety switches... except the neutral switch.|

It'll save you from making a big mistake one day with the sidestand down. :P

|slimvulcanrider||every one bypasses the said side stand switch.|

Sidestand switch bellow
It would be really cool if I could replace just the protective rubber bellow on the sidestand switch (98 VN750). Mine is shot and I kind of hate to replace the whole switch as it is working just fine. Anybody else ever creatively dealt with this?
