Question about 2002 Honda VT 750 DC Shadow Spirit
A side stand switch is just a spring-loaded, momentary switch.
What you have to figure out on yours is if it's normally opened, or normally closed (in electrical terms).
The best way is to use an Ohmmeter or a continuity tester.
Remove the 2 wire leads from the switch, and hook the test leads to it.
Pushing the plunger on the switch and watching the Ohmmeter gauge, or the continuity tester light, will tell you if it's normally open or close.
What you need to do is to replicate the reading when the plunger is in the same position as when the sidestand is UP.
The end results will be that (depending, again, if the switch is normally opened or closed) is that you need to either just disconnect the switch (having the 2 wire NOT make contact with each other), or connect the 2 wires so they stay in contact with each other (run a jumper wire between them, cut/strip/twist/solder the wires together, etc).
