Kill switch always.

From halfway down the block.

Coast it in with no rumble so the neighbors don't complain. Always leave the house at idle for a half a block too.

Oh, the joys of living in a neighborhood of bike haters.

25 years of riding and I've never fried an ECU or worn out a switch from doing it.

Brits never can seem to get electrical right!

where did you get that info from? I looked on the 675 forum and all that I could find was they have had 16 cases of ecu failures for some reason or another.

my cx500 when it went to about 120k miles it had a worn out insulation on the wire going to the kill switch and would randomly kill until i figured it out.

edit of course everything on that bike was worn out except the motor transmission and driveshaft.

I put it in first gear and put the kickstand down, which kills the engine, then I use the key. Just habit.

I never use the killswitch and actually for a while totally forgot about it. Don't ask. Let's just say, when your bike doesn't start and someone says, "check the switch on the right", they mean kill switch.
