    Hit a big rut and it dies

    Would restart but die when put in gear. This says kick stand switch. By passed switch and ran well. The question was why. So I took the switch apart. (2003 TW) The plunger pushes up a piece of plastic with a piece of copper to connect and disconnect switch. There is a piece of plastic that goes in a slot on the plunger. This little piece was broken and would not let the switch connect so it though the kick stand was down. Took the broken pieces out and put switch back together and works like new.

    Is your kickstand switch functioning as it should now, you were able to fix it by removing the broken pieces of plastic? Or is it disabled now?
