    Default Kickstand sensor killing bike

    The kickstand is slightly coming down over bumps occasionally and it kills acceleration. Should I just replace the springs or is it something else?

    I never had a problem with my kickstand switch, but I eliminated it when I got the bike because they always piss me off. Take the switch off, cut off the connector on the bike harness, solder the wires together, cover in heat shrink. You could use a crimp cap. They are usually white and are like a butt connector but only open on one side. Then heat shrink.

    Removing the kickstand switch is a safety issue and if you need any sort of inspection down the road, your bike will probably fail.

    It's likely the connector is loose or full of crud/corrosion. Take it apart, clean it, inspect the wires and check for obvious issues to correct.

    "The kickstand is slightly coming down over bumps." Has someone seen this happen? If so, replace the spring and do what Fraps said. I've never heard of another 9 having that problem but there is always a first. Good Luck!

    I had this happen on my Gixxer. The ‘ears’ where it mounted were spread a little and let it shift. I took it off and closed them a little with a hammer, perfect after. I don’t recall how ours mount though.
