Self Diagnosis #19

Hi all, a new member here, I recently became a FJR 1300A owner...out of blue the bike's self diagnosis programme had shown number 19, asked the dealer and they said, it shows that there is an open circuit where the side stand switch is...somehow i have to by-pass this and manage to start the engine so that I can take it to the dealer to sort the switch problem...the problem is I dont know how to? Any help please? Thanks...

Can you put the bike on its center stand and spray contact cleaner up into the contacts of the sidestand switch, while you work the sidestand up and down? That will probably get the gunk out of it enough to make it work...

Liquid is probably correct... if however, that does not do the trick, you can short the 2 wires that go to the switch. closing the circuit. That will let you get it to the shop.... but I don't recommend leaving it that way for long.
Good luck.

Least destructive way to short out the switch is to follow the wire up from the sidestand, and you should come to a 2 way plug and socket (IIRC on the Gen 1 it's under the tank, near the injector bodies, but I could be way out - memory not working too well at the moment) Tape a 'U' shaped piece of wire in there to connect the two wires and you should be up and running. Tape is to hold it in place, and stop it grounding on anything it shouldn't.

There is a safety switch underneath the clutch lever which can give the same problem, cutting the engine. Clean and use contact grease.

Buying a new sidestand switch may not cure the problem - don't ask me how I know that......
