No Kickstand, No Start?

took the kickstand off my 07 track bike, but left the little switch and zip tied it to the bike. i had the kickstand in the up position when i took it off, so the switch should be set as though it were still on and up, right? i have no idea... anyway, now it'll turn over but not start. i have to imagine that's what the problem is, because it ran fine prior. i put the bodywork on it since removing the kickstand, but can't imagine what i could have disturbed doing it to keep the bike from starting. any advice would be appreciated!

clip off the sensor with enough wire to put it back on if you ever decide to and solder the two wires off the bike together and zip tie em outta the way

some tracks require it being secured in place or removed all together

Without looking at my bike, i'm pretty sure the switch is on a spring.....meaning it needs pressure to make (or break) the circuit which the kick stand does in the up position.

Just Jumper/short the connector or you can solder a switch bewteen the wire.
So its basically a bypass switch.

Try rotoring the kickstand switch. Maybe there's a return spring in the sensor assembly, telling to bike that the kickstand down?

Is it diffenect from the 03?

The kickstand is what pushes the switch in. When you remove it, no matter what position it was is... now it thinks its down.

What else did you do to the bike? The bike will start in neutral no matter what position the kickstand is in. So unless you have it in gear... it should start.

that's what i thought too. the only thing i can imagine is i didn't have the bank angle sensor bolted down tight, and maybe it came loose when i put the fairing on or something.

Does the FI prime? Or will it just not fire up? Make sure the BAS is installed correctly and like the guys said above, insert a jumper wire between the two leads of the kickstand switch. Let us know how you make out.

Like Quagmire said... does the fuel pump prime? If not then you have something either not connected or wired incorrectly.
