SOURCE: kickstand kill switch inop

Connect the two wires together that goes to the kickstand it should keep it from starting. With wires unpluged it should start.
If that is the case you need a switch

SOURCE: bypass kickstand switch

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.

How do you bypass kickstand kill switch on a R1200CL


What you propose isn't wise unless the kickstand is to be removed. Lots of people forget to lift the stand and sometimes that causes a nasty.

If the switch has two wires to it you need to know whether it is normally open or normally closed when the stand is up. I expect it will be normally closed so by-passing it will be a matter of connecting the two wires together. If it is normally open it should not need any action at all.

If the switch has more than two wires it will be a matter of checking on the wiring diagram for an answer.

Location of lean angle cut off switch


Depending on the make/model of your bike, there might be a "kickstand" switch (which prevents you riding off with your kickstand down) sometimes this can be faulty (or broken from a fall over) and prevent the bike from starting. I would check (bypass the switch) usually located near where the kickstand attaches to the frame, to see if the bike starts with the switch bypassed. If it does, replace (or remove) the switch. Depending on which side the bike fell, you might have damaged the kill switch (generally located on the right bar/clip-on). Basically carefully inspect the side of the bike that it fell on, look for any obvious signs of damage and then meticulously inspect that area for loose/broken wires/connectors. Do all the lights, instrument panel light up when the key is turned on? Check the battery connections. There are numerous possibilities, but use standard troubleshooting methodologies and you should be able to find or narrow down the problem. For future reference I think you were probably referring to the kickstand switch as opposed to to a "lean angle cut off" switch, which would be very dangerous to have on a motorcycle. Anyway, if you want/need more help. Post some more details such as; make/model/year, side it fell on, do the electrics (lights, turn signals, brake light, speedometer, tach etc.) work (or which don't & under what circumstances), does the started motor turn etc. etc. etc. Good luck.

Suzuki dr350 is cutting out after engaging gear


could be a clutch issue but first make sure it doesnt have a saftey switch in the kickstand it will be like a secondary kill switch that kills the engine so you don't ride of with the kickstand down its a little sensor that usuall has 2 wires coming out of it sometimes you can bypass it although i dont recommend this as a permanent fix, look near the kickstand pivot for this sensor

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.
