Kickstand kill switch sensor

2487 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  bwringer
So today while I was on the freeway something hit me and shut off the bike. Turns out the kickstand kill switch was damaged. I was able to splice the two wires together to bypass the switch and was able to get back on my way. I鈥檓 not having any luck finding the part, would it be ok to install a generic kickstand kill switch in its place? Ty in advance 馃檹

As long as the switch makes a continuous circuit with the stand up it will work just like it is working now.
It's on the "Wiring Harness" fiche, part number 37840-06G01 . Looks like about $60 for a fresh one from your favorite source for Suzuki bits.

Or, this part is common to all V-Strom DL1000 and DL650 models (yes, really... all -- 2002 to today); Suzuki never redesigns a working part.

(Click "where used".)

So you could rummage around on fleaBay and such or at your friendly local moto-boneyard and find one easily enough for not much money. Clean it up before installing, flush the gunk out of it with a decent plastic-safe contact cleaner, get a little light lube in there, and you're all set.

It does look like there's something doofy going on with the fiches for the 2020 and 2021 models. All the part numbers, not just this one, have an -000 added at the end and are listed as not available.

IOW, they show 37840-06G01-000 and not just 37840-06G01.

Personally, I think this is just some weird software or database problem with the parts listing service. The part pops up again for 2022 models, so I think you can be 100% confident it's the same. As I said, Suzuki never reworks a part unless they have to.
