I don't know if anybody else has had this problem. Twice now I've had a rock bounce up off the road and hit the side kickstand switch. And both times have broken it, killing the engine right away. This happened once on the highway and once on a side road on my way home from work. I was none to impressed. Once this is broken you can't start the bike again. The first time this happened I traced the wires back to the plug, cut them and spliced them together to get the bike running. I had to do this because it was another 20km home. The second time I just used the pigtail that I made from the last time. Can you redesign the switch location or should \i just get the skid plats? Will thess cover the switch, or should \i carry this pigtail with me always?
