Side stand switch bridge
« on: September 30, 2015, 06:51:23 pm »
After doing lots of swimming in Baviaans on Friday my engine cut out on Sunday in Jeffreys. Knew it was the side stand switch, but not sure which of the  2 wires to bridge. BMW mechanic not sure and I did not want to take the risk of damaging some other components. Fortunately some HD guys had an empty trailer. My first ride on the back of a HD something softail!. Name a bit of a misnomer (the soft tail part) Switch had been campaigned already, but no more warranty! Dealer gave me a switch under goodwill and I have just fitted it. Problem resolved.
For in case this happens again- lucky it did not happen in Baviaans- which 2 of the 3 wires do I connect to each other? Dealer does not know.
