The sidestand on my DR-Z used to kill the bike when my boot would push it down. Fixed that with a tie-wrap that keeps the switch closed.
But...today on the way to my break-in service my GS8 stalled in traffic as I came up on a stopped car. While stopping I pulled in the clutch and the engine quit. Started right back up with a push of the button. I told the service writer and they updated the software. We'll see if that has any effect.
The good news is that my skid plate arrived yesterday so they were able to install it today
Looks great. Will have to take a pic this weekend.
