If you bypassed the switch, you should get that fixed as it is a safety feature so the bike can not be ridden with the stand deployed. It is also a common practice for BMW riders to use this feature and deploy the stand when parking in first gear to kill the engine and leave it in gear so the bike does not roll off the stand.Joint all wires together. It is working
That is truly sad, but I can't think of better justification to keep such a critical feature in good working order.Yes, do get your side stand safety switch working. I had a friend that was riding a Goldwing with the side stand down. He tried to put it up while his was riding . He went into the ditch, broke his neck, & was a quadriplegic the last 10 years of his life.
