Thread: Kickstand switch...Bypass?

  1. #1
    Can someone tell me how to bypass the kickstand switch on my 03 xb9s? Narrowed my problem down to the kickstand switch. Any pics of where and what wires to cut and splice would be nice.

    Where is the switch located? I'm reading different things on this. I'm seeing by the stand, by the swing arm and under the seat which is why I'm asking.

    Yup, trace the two wires that run to the sidestand & short them together; switch bypassed!

    I don't see a switch anywhere. Killing me! Bike starts, neutral light on, idles fine, put kickstand up pull in clutch, drop into 1st and bike stalls!

    There is a rotary switch that turns and closes a circuit when you put the kick stand up... There should be wires running to the very base of the kick stand.... I'll go take a pic of mine
