Support the motorcycle on a level surface.
Check the side stand spring for damage or loss of tension. Check the side stand assembly for freedom of movement and lubricate the side stand pivot if necessary. Make sure that the side stand is not bent.
Check the side stand ignition cut-off system:
- Sit astride the motorcycle and raise the side stand.
- Start the engine with the transmission in neutral, then shift the transmission into gear, with the clutch lever squeezed.
- Move the side stand fully down.
- The engine should stop as the side stand is lowered.
If there is a problem with the system, check the side stand switch (section18).
