Side Stand Switch
I noticed last year that my side stand switch was not working. I could start the bike and drop it into gear with the side stand down. Not a big deal since i always check that it is up before i depart, but thought i better figure out what the issue is.
I pulled my front gear cover off and discovered the wire coming from the switch had been pinched by the clutch slave cylinder. Bare wire was visible. I cut out a section of that and spliced in new wire, soldered it, then shrink wrapped it, and finally electrical tape over the whole thing.
I put the key in and was raising and lowering the side stand, but no indication on the console. Isn't there supposed to be a yellow light when side stand is down? Maybe that wasn't the only issue there.
Is there a fuse for the side stand?
The strange thing is, the bike starts fine still. I didn't try putting it in gear though.
