KLX 250S kick stand switch

are there any issues with removing the kick stand switch. Can you just solder the wires together to make the circuit, or is it tied to other electrics? The guy I bought the bike from said he tried it and had to take it back to the dealer to "re set" something, as it wouldnt run right. It looks like a simple open/closed circuit to me.

With the advent of today's electronics, wiring is still the same (yes, remove the switch and wire together) but an on-board computer somewhere somehow may well store the faulty switch input as a fault code that needs to be reset manually or, in newer bikes, with special communication equipment and software from the mfr. As yet, there are no standards for OBD compliance for bikes like on cars so sometimes it can be expensive. For instance, Yamaha's newer sport touring bikes give a check engine light for stoopit stuff. With 2015 and earlier models the owner could reset the fault at home. From 2016 on, no more. You either see the dealer every time or you buy the stuff to do it with.

Words aren't children and there's nothing wrong with killing them to clarify a point or keep the peace.
