    The only problem I can see with disconnecting the side stand switch is that you will not know if its up or down...................could be embarrassing :-)

    Without having the electrical drawings to hand ( im at work) would it be possible to leave the sidestand down indicator on the screen but to disable the engine cut-out function

    Right

    Ive sorted it.

    The sidestand switch is a major problem.

    As a safety issue it is advisable to leave the green wire intact inorder for the light to illume for the sidestand on the dash .

    The priniciple is to bridge the 2 outer wires in order to satisfy the Loom that there is a safety contact that the sidestand is up.

    The brown and Black are spliced together leaving the Green wire intact.

    see below



    Best of both worlds.
