Unhappy Trike died

MyTrike died on the highway yesterday, it turned out to be a simple fix. The side stand switch is tied up after trike install, it somehow got broken off by a rock I guess and the engine died. After a quick call to dealer he said it was the switch which was no longer there. He told me to jump the brown and white wire together and sure enough it worked. Hope this will help others
