The sidestand switch is nothing more than a switch to ground. When the circuit to ground is broken, it kills the motor. Since both the SS and QS basically interrupt the circuit to ground, I would think that hooking these up in series should work. In theory.

By hooking them up in series, neither will work as the circuit is open all of the time, at least until both are activated which will close the circuit. Try connecting them in parallel.
You sure about that? I think when the circuit is closed (sidestand up) is when the bike is allowed to run. When the sidestand is down, the circuit is open. When I do track days, I take the sidestand off and close the circuit at the connector with a paperclip. So, hooking these up in series, not parallel, should make them both work, since the circuit will normally be closed until a) the sidestand goes down, or b) the QS senses movement of the shift rod and opens the circuit.

I think I have my head around this from looking a the schematic for the bike. We can try the following with some temporary jumpers...

All the stock connectors should be intact. Each AMP connector has a numbers on them for the different wires. Each connector should be a 3 terminal connector.

Connect the #2 from the bike harness to the #2 of the Starlane. Connect the #1 of the Starlane to the #2 of the sidestand switch. Connect the #1 of the sidestand switch to the #1 of the bike harness. This will put the two components into a series connection.
