What exactly is a swing arm sensor ?
Is that the ABS/Speed sensor ?

Guess removed....
I don't always drop my bike, but when I do, I prefer to drop her in front of a crowd

After some investigation the text is incorrect... it should read "Side Stand Switch".. 

Link for more detail with regards to problem..

http://bmwmcmag.com/2014/03/recalled-side-stand-switch-on-some-2013-bmw-motorcycles/

In Short - BMW states, “Water may enter the side-stand switch preventing the motorcycle from starting or potentially shutting off the motorcycle while it is being ridden.” And further “an unexpected shutdown increases the risk of a crash.”
