If there is a bike that needs a tilt sensor, its a track/racebike. I don't think the 07 came with one, but I could be wrong
My 07 1098S is a track bike only and I have considered adding one of these lanyard kill switches. It would guarantee the bike shuts off if you leave it, but I have yet to see anyone use one, so I feel a bit foolish.

MPS Tether Kill

I have the MPS switch sitting on the shelf in the garage, I just need to get around to actually install it. Believe me, every morning at the track I slap my forehead, that I forgot, again! :(


Gotta ask though, why would you feel foolish using it?
a combination of lazyness, money and the fact that i have yet to see another racer use one has kept me from buying it. I had done my research in the past when I saw the threads about peoples bikes ruined. I wonder how they even install.

by the way, as I typed this my wife came in and saw all the emoticons (smiles) on the right side of this page. Asked me how often I use them, I said never. She loved this one so I gotta use it.

so, tether switch to avoid :shitfan:

What you say makes sense and should work. The Microtec ECU has a setting for a tip switch and can be switched on or off at will.
I just bought one off eBay for an Aprilia RSV4 that is old and cheap. I'll hook up my volt meter to the bike soon and see what I get out of the plug. I have an extra switch I can plug in to it (I have a kickstand kill switch plugged in to it now, that terminates it so it thinks the stand is down). I may need to add a relay and supply 12V, but I can do all that easy enuf. I'll know more once I get the switch and check out the 1098. maybe this weekend, maybe next. It's so hot now :(

This may prove totally impossible, but I dont think so. either way I'm only out a few bucks.

See what you get out of which plug?
Can you stick your meter on the wires and tip or roll the switch over to check it's just a simple on/off switch for me please?
I plan on checking that. I also plan on checking the plug where the kickstand sensor plugs in to. Like I said, right now my kickstand is removed and I have a plug inserts that simply makes it think that the kickstand is up, so I'll take that off and check which pin does what, then check the sensor, etc. and see.

:EDIT: I just had an idea that if the bike is in neutral, it would still run with my method. Depending on how more complex it may be to do it another way (perhaps via fuel pump or something else) I may decide to take this as an acceptable risk. It's not in neutral when I'd be going down, it'd be a slim chance it'd get in to neutral only out of 6 gears, right? Something to think about at least....
