Why do you need a side stand switch for? Just remember to kick the stand up before you take off and problem solved.
Huh? I've never heard of anything like that happen. How would the spring just fail all of a sudden?? Plus, if it did, that would mean your bike would shut off as you're riding...not sure that I'd want that.In case the spring mechanism fails during a ride and the sidestand drops. That would not be pretty.
