Kick Stand Switch Problem

Yesterday when I kicked my stand down the engine kept running? It looks as if a bolt was missing. How does the mechanism work? I thought that if it failed the engine would shut off? Bike is a Triumph Daytona 600.

Hi,
I don't really know how its mechanism works, but the last time I bought a replacement OEM kickstand for my 05 R6, it comes with a small sensor thing that has to be connected under the bike. All modern bikes should be similiar, I think. Just my 2 cents. Is there any error light lit? See you in lab tonight, Higham

Most I have seen are push button type. If the button is not pushed in the circuit is open. When the stand is up it pushes it in. It should kill the bike if it is in gear. Are you sure you were in gear?

Positive I was in gear. Is there a pull type instead of push button? The neutral light comes on so it must know if it's I'm gear.

^^^^ this is how mine reacts, only killing the bike in=gear with the kickstand down, also depending on which part failed you could have a varietyy of symptoms, if the switch failed in a manner where it is constantly showing closed this could be the issue. just because it went out doesnt mean it defaulted to its resting position.

sounds like the switch failed opposite of normal, as long as you were in gear. you can test it a few ways, simplest for you would be to disconect the plug(trace the wires that go to the kickstand switch) and unplug it, see what happens. it shouldnt want to start at all.

I took this pictur of the mechanism. Looks as if a bolt has fallen out? Also looks like it may be a pull style switch?

put a screw in there, and problem should be solved. with it being able to move like that, the kickstand isn't gonna push the switch all the way in, so the bike will think your stand is still down.
