Question Kickstand switch eliminator?

I have a 01 M750. I ordered the TPO Parts kickstand switch eliminator. It is $20 bucks. Has anyone here installed this item? How easy/difficult was the install? I don't have alot of electrical work experience...

Should be gravy and take about 10 minutes to install. A switch eliminator is basically just a way to connect both wired from the harness without just cutting and twisting them together, ie: the free way.

I hated our M600 in the fact you could only start it when sitting on the bike kickstand up. She just did not want to have to sit on the bike for 3-5 minutes until it warmed up. So I got her the kickstand reversal harness. It makes it so the bike will start and idle stand down, but will kill the engine if she tries to put it in gear stand down. That took about 7 minutes to install.

Thanks for the tip. How are the instructions? Easy to understand? Again, I am not very experienced with wiring and stuff like that.... Also, where is the module located that this eliminator will be plugged into?

You simply disconnect the harness at the switch and plug in that bypass. It really is that simple.

TPO has some of the best instructions in the aftermarket parts business. It should take you less than 10 minutes to install.

Well, I got the TPO kickstand switch eliminator, and it went on perfectly. Super easy and quick! Nice. Now all I need to do is make sure the bike is not in gear when I start it with the kickstand down.... Great mod!
