Disable the side stand kill switch?

Any suggestions on how to temporarily disable the side stand kill switch? My springs have lost tension and it's going to take a week or so for new ones to get here. I rigged a zip tie but don't think it will stay put on my commute. Thanks

There is a green wire from the fuse box to the switch. Connect the green wire to a black wire with a white stripe like the other wire to the switch or to the battery negative post. That will bypass the switch. Remember not to ride off with the stand down.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

When the stand switch failed on my V2 I used a blue Scotchlok to join the switch wires together and get things going again.

As a temporary solution scotchlok's are quick and easy and I always keep some in my tool kit.

As others have said you just need to connect the two wires together so that the bike thinks that stand is always up. Just disconnect the connector and put a small section of wire into it on the side that connects to the bike.

Yep. Simple as following the pigtail from the side stand switch to the connector. Pull apart the connector, installing a jumper and taping the jumper in place. While on a trip a few years ago my buddies F650 side stand switch quit working. Used a dime as a jumper and go him back up and running.
