The switch will save your butt if your bike goes down. On older carbed models the carb bowls wouldn't work if it went down. Now with FI without that switch, it will continue to run and starve your motor of oil. It only takes a couple seconds to screw your bearings up and finally spin one.

They fixed the problem with the switch, if thats your concern.

+1. I recently went down and after discovering that my collarbone was broken (plus my vision was pretty much 'whited-out' for about 6-7 mins) the last thing on my mind at that moment was my bike. Im glad that switch was there. You'd be stupid to disable it.

...unless you're doing something that i cant think of.
