I need to remove my kickstand because it gets in the way when I shift with the rearsets I just purchased. I primarily fo track days so not too concerned with losing the kick stand and looks like one bolt but I know there is a sensor on there. What is the best way to remove the kickstand and by pass the sensor. Can I just remove the one bolt to get the kickstand off or will the sensor give me problems?

Thanks,
Jeff

You will have to close the circut for the kickstand switch. Its as simple as cut the two wires strip them and connect them together.

is there a picture of this anywhere (the two wires)??? I'm doing this very soon and with my luck I'll end up setting the damn thing on fire or something.

hate to bump an old thread, but is this the two wires that go to the kickstand plate behind it?

Yes, the ones that are connected to it. When you'll remove it, you'll see them. Just tap them to close the circuit.

Just be sure it's a good solder and check it periodically. That's something you don't want coming undone down the back straight...

Be sure to heat those 3 bolts that hold the assembly to the frame ( if your removing the entire assembly) a blow torch works great. Otherwise your gonna round out the Allen heads
