This is a so-called 'kill switch' that has (3) positions, left-center-right. Left and right are STOP while center is RUN. Use this switch to stop the engine, and place it back into the RUN position when you want to start the engine.
When you shut off the engine with this switch, the brake power booster remains on, so if the bike rolls you still have finger-tip stopping ability,
Since this bike is new to you , I offer a parking tip. After you stop the engine with the STOP switch, leave it in gear, ease out the clutch and roll forward until it takes up the slack in the gearbox and stops. Then, swing out the sidestand and ease her over. Notice that the engine now prevents it from rolling forward and the sidestand prevents it from rolling backward. This is a very stable position.
When it is on the sidestand and stable, go ahead and switch off the key.
To start, turn on the key and watch the red flashing light on the dash go from fast to slow blink as the brake booster does its self-check. Lean the bike upright, fold in the sidestand and pull in the clutch. Last, flip the switch to the center RUN position, press the starter button and she will start right up.
Enjoy the ride!
