That is an interesting idea. Why not take it one step futher and take the side stand switch and rig it to your shift lever so that when you move you lever a certain amount it activates the switch. No buttons to mess around with. Might have to mess around with this one.

Why remove the sidestand switch altogether? As it is a NC switch all you need to do is wire in another switch to break the line? Then you retain the sidestand funtionality...

And doing a switch on the gear level isn't that hard... That's actually all there is to it with an expensively bought quickshifter... Apart from the obviously more sofisticated adjustment options... And that some are affecting the FI instead of ignition... Depends on the bike...

That was kind of what I was thinking. It seemed the the version in the article was way more complicated thean it needed to be.

I am thinking of some like a spring loaded brake switch. Just need to find one that is NC.
