Question about 2005 Honda VT 1100 C2 Shadow Sabre
I'm aware that some motorcycles, possibly even this one, can't be started in gear with the clutch held in. I want to rig it so that I can. At one point everyone has popped the clutch or the bike was still cold and died at a light. Trying to find neutral at a green light can be dangerous, people getting ****** off or not paying attention at all. There is probably a safety wire somewhere that needs to be grounded or shorted. Does anyone know where that wire would be located and what I should do?
Its on the side stand Close to where it pivots (side stand safety lockout switch).
