Depending if the switch is normally open, or normally closed (you failed to provide YEAR/MAKE/MODEL, so there's no way to tell), try unplugging the wires from the switch (two wires).
If that doesn't work, unplug and jump the two wires together.

Just picked up a 94 FZR 1000 theft recovery.Its getting no spark.I noticed kickstand safety switch dangling.Can i bypass?

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Fouled spark plugs.
2. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Loose connection at ignition coil or plug between ignition sensor and module.
4. Spark plug cables in bad condition, shorting / leaking, spark plug cable connections loose.
5. Faulty ignition coil or ignition / electronic module
6. Failed CKP, CMP, or BAS sensor.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Security alarm failing to disarm needs reset

Bike starts but cuts off when put in gear for ome reason

Sounds like the kickstand safety switch is not making contact. There is a plunger type switch that the kickstand pushes when it is in the up position. The switch makes contact allowing the ignition system to operate. The switch is bypassed when the bike is in neutral, allowing you to start the engine. However, if the kickstand switch is not engaged when the bike is taken out of neutral, it acts the same as the kill switch on your handlebar. Some of these switches have adjustments and that may be all that is necessary. In a pinch, you can short the switch out (taking the two leads that go to it and twist them together) bypassing the safety circuit.

When i put gear my 250 venox quit.what need to do.

Check kickstand interlock. If you have a switch at your kickstand, this is used to prevent driving with the kickstand down. You can bypass the switch by pulling off the connector and trying to start. Also try to put a shorting wire across the connector terminals. If the bike will go into gear, you have a bad interlock switch.
