Broken sidestand finder

Posting for a friend:

He took a turn too tight and broke the foot peg finder clean off (no clue how he did it). Question: he called the dealer for the replacement part and they asked him if he also needs the side stand switch. I looked at my intact stand, and did not see one. It seems to be sandwiched between the main stand and the finder. Does anybody know what it is, does he need it? It does not affect the automatic engine switch off.

Attached are pics of the sidestand without the finder, and the diagram of the stand and it’s parts. It’s part #2 I’m referring too.

Not sure but can't see how a switch could operate if it was sandwiched between the finder stem and the side stand - I would have thought the switch sits where the side stand assembly pivots so that it operates when the stand is in the up or down position. Can't check my bike at the mo though.

The switch has nothing to do with the finder. Itís mounted at the top of the stand arm and looks to be a sensor type rather than the old fashioned plunger operated switch. I suspect the dealer doesnít actually know how it works and is just going off the parts diagram.

So does that mean he does or does not need it?

To answer your question.


If he has just demolished the side-stand from the pivot then there is no need to replace the sensor unless the side-stand has collided with the actual sensor on it's 'departure' from the bike, highly improbable! The sensor is a Hall Effect (magnetic) switch, square plastic plate with 3 wires, mounted on the underside of the mainframe so, unless he did a big number on the damage then it's probably still in-tact. On the side stand itself there is a small plate secured by two Allen button head screws. This is the magnet which actuates the sensor, detecting the side-stand up/down position. Won't need to replace this either unless compromised by physical damage, just swap over.


Just order the bare stand.
