KTM/Husqvarna have gone to great lengths to provide a side stand sensor that cannot be tampered with. This sensor does not allow gear engagement without the side stand in the “UP” position.
While I understand the safety aspect there are a few issues. If this sensor is to fail (or you lose the magnet) while in the field you WILL be left stranded. This is not a simple roadside repair like the old days where you cut the switch off and twisted wires together or even dug up a proper resistor to temporarily alleviate the problem. This is a 50% duty cycle square wave that would be almost impossible to duplicate without proper hardware, an oscilloscope, and knowledge in circuits/electronics.
Carry one of these dongles on your bike for a little piece of mind should the OEM product fail.
WARNING: This product is to be carried as a spare part and used to get you and your bike to safety when the OEM sensor fails. It is NOT to be installed while your OEM side stand sensor is operating normally as this allows the bike to engage gears with the side stand still in the down position which can result in property damage and/or injury.
