If you have a 2006 with the black powder coated frame, maybe you'll want the black sidestand..
Ohh thanks for the info!
But still, I have a question:
I've heard about the issue that for some models of Adv it restraints the movement of the kickstarter. What can you say about it? How does the kickstarter work with this side stand?

Plug is new, choke is good, battery is new and it starts every time.

Going to check the valves next.

Fixed it Thanks Bill.

It was under the dash. The fuse never blew I think water got into it long ago and it finally corroded away. I have a picture but can't figure out how to attach using my iPhone.

For my '05 the kickstarter only "works" if the sidestand is in the up position.

Does anybody have any idea about this?

If I stall it, then all the instruments go blank, it seems like there is no power, no lights, no turn signal, nothing. But it starts for the first kick, and electrocity is back imediately - lights, speedo, rev gauge, everything. And they are on good power then - driven from the battery imo.

Last time I've stalled it at home just to make it easier to diagnose.. Pulled off the tank + fairings, moved all the cables, and still power didn't come back.. Where should I start looking at?

If it is running, charging voltage is 14.4V, battery has 13.3V in it, but when it has this wierd power off issue mentioned above, multimeter displays 0.0V in the battery.

Maybe the whole thing isn't related to the stalling though.

I had the same problem 2 times:
1. There was a problem with the ignition key connection cable (specifically with contact near the key), I noticed where the problem was when tried to turn the steering wheel to the maximum
2. There was a basic bad contact on the battery

Dunno maybe it will help you.

Thank you! I'll check it out tomorrow.. I tried to wiggle the cables around the ignition keylock, but it didn't make any sense

Center Stand Install

Can someone post pics of where the parts bolt up for the center stand? I've searched and find the parts diagram for the stand itself but not what bolts to where (especially the crescent shaped piece).
Thanks
