How To: Bypass the kickstand safety switch on a motorcycle

Bypass the kickstand safety switch on a motorcycle

In this tutorial, we learn how to bypass the kickstand safety switch on a motorcycle. If you have broke your kickstand switch, you can easily bypass it while you are on the road so you can set your bike. All you need to do this is a piece of electric tape. If you don't have this on your bike, the vehicle will completely turn off while it's in use. To do this, unplug the switch that is the kickstand safety switch. There will be two electrical tabs in this, stick a screwdriver in them to remove the wires from each side. Next, connect these two loose wires with electrical tape, then test your bike to see if it's connected properly. When finished, place this back into a spot where you won't hit it and ride your bike!
