Is there a quick test to see if the kick stand switch is defective? I'm trying to help a newby on another forum. It's a '93 and the switch sounds like it's bad. If they cut the wire, will it bypass the switch, or should they connect the wires after the cut? The bike starts ok with the clutch in. When they let the clutch out, the tach jumps around and the bike quits. They've tried to pull out the switch peg and no difference.
