98 Honda XRL650 sidestand switch

2 posts in this topic

I recently purchased a 1998 Honda XRL650. I would like to know how to disconnect the sidestand safety switch before I get stranded in the woods. Can anyone help me?

If you just unplug it, the bike won't start. Two of the three contacts need to be shorted together, you can figure this out with a screwdriver. Then cut the old harness, solder the wires together, and finish up with electrical tape or better yet, heat shrink tubing. I don't recommend just twisting the wires together, this could leave you stranded.
