Need to temporarily defeat the side stand sensor / switch

Sorry, no time to search as I'm leaving for a ride.

My side stand is off at the welder's at this time.


I rigged the side stand in a way I THOUGHT I was tricking it to sense the side stand.


I wrapped the sensor twice w/ elect tape to protect it, placed two ktm plated washers on the sensor side (not potted side) to think the side stand was up. Then I realized that makes the system think the stand is down.


Then I tried removing the washers and wrapping the hell outta the sensor with electrical tape, hoping to shield it.


No dice.


Any quick and easy suggestions?

I just tried to trick it with a magnet and that didn't work either.

Guess I'm riding tomorrow instead.

Thanks. It's at the welder's shop, too.

I shoulda researched this first, then taken the side stand to the welder's shop. Oh well, I get it back today and will be ready to go ride tomorrow.

Thx

I taped a magnet to mine and that has been working for me. Not sure but I think the direction of the magnet is important so try it both ways.

Connect the neutral wire to ground. Its the light blue wire you dont cut when you do the 2nd and 3rd gear full power mod.
