Clutch Sensor Question???

So I've heard that a clutch sensor can cause you to loose power if it goes out, or has to be bypassed. I know it keeps Kawis from starting in gear, but to my understanding and per the dealership, it does not decrease any power. Kawi

Forum only has folks mentioning the clutch sensor changing a map to the computer which prevents the rpm from hitting the limiter...but it looks like it on my tak when full on each gear....

anyone experience this before?

I could see the electronics limiting the RPM and possibly power to the engine if if thought the clutch was engaging in order to prevent high revving while the clutch is pulled in. The more I read posts like this, the more I like my old carburetored, non ecm bike. I don't have experience with this problem, just a lot of electronics experience.

still workin' out the bugs though. When adjusted right, it's pretty awesome. And yes, I rag about all the electronic controls on bikes, and then decide to add some to mine. Wouldn't trust my engineering to something like antilock brakes ... might not live to revision 2.0

I am pretty sure the ECMs on the Suzukis are the only one that lose power if you jump it. That being said there are ways around that you can build a circuit that reroutes the power just like the sensor and boom... no power loss and no need to pull in the clutch.
