Fit sitestand with switch
« on: August 25, 2013, 01:52:55 PM »
Hello MH friends,
there is a MH900e parking in my livingroom.
Now I'm thinking about bringing it on the road next year.
First I want to fit the sitestand with a switch from a 998, because of the original auto-flip-up technology is a little dangerous for this nice bike.
Did anyone do it before? Are there any problems? What about the wiring? Are there connectors available?

My english is bad, sorry.....  :P
greetings from germany

No need to change the switch.  All you have to change is the link at the top end of the spring.  I'm sure I have pictures showing how to do this somewhere.  I'll look for them this weekend and i'll post them if I find them.

Oh, that I've only to change the link of the spring ... Iknow. (I'll use the link of the 916-998)
In Germany the possibility of starting the engine is not allowed while the sidestand is down. Alternativ we use the auto-flip-up sidestand link.
There i need the switch for terminating the ignition while sidestand is down.

Ah.  Same situation here.  I thought you were just talking about removing the auto-retract feature.

You can make your own "switch" by removing the sidestand switch altogether and soldering the wire ends together.
