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.
yeah Hoss...keep that left leg strong and healthy....kick that sidestand as a regular practice.....we don't want you to get sidelined again

FYI: I periodically test my sidestand kill switch....even if it is not on purpose....sometime I make sure the kill switch on the handlebar works the same way....

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.

I still have my side stand switch intact also so I guess the "every one bypasses" theory is shot down in flames. I agree that it is a handy safety feature to have in working order.

Properly cleaned it'll give you no issues.

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

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?
