Please Explain the Side Stand Switch

My 2007 990 Adventure will only run in neutral! It dies as soon as you put it in gear whether the side stand is up or down. It will crank in gear. I am going out now to check the clutch lever. Thanks!

The piece that is mounted to the side stand was loose and not making contact to the proximity switch. Thanks!

The sidestand switch, neutral switch and clutch lever switch work together to keep the rider from riding off with the sidestand down. The ignition is cut if motor is running, bike in gear and stand down--as soon as clutch lever is released. The sidestand switch is a 2 piece assembly. It is a Hall effect type with no physical contacts. The circuit is made/broken by a magnet moving through the field created by an energized switch. The magnet is on the sidestand. The switch/field part is bolted to the frame. The sidestand switch can be bypassed with a plug in device from KTM or DIY by removing the 2 pieces, leaving the connections intact and securing the magnet piece to the fixed piece so that that the circuit is complete--making the ECU think the sidestand is down. Sidestand switch failures are very common.

FWIW

Another bush fix

The other get out of jail for this is to short the wires going to the neutral sensor. Fools the bike into thinking you are in neutral and away you go. Netral light stays on but you are rolling

This bodge can best be done with a paper clip shorting the plug from the dash, duct taped into position
