Does anyone know what the part number is for the sidestand switch for the TLR? Mine is going bad and I would like to replace it.

Unless you reall think you'll need it, pitch it... just short the wires together. Not sure what's more dangerous - a motor cutting out when you least expect it or a sidestand that (usually...) folds back anyway.

I'm sure there's enough people on here that'll give you theirs anyway (I'd give you mine but I think it went to the bin - I removed it when I took the sidestand off for the track).

if you take it off, you have to put a 1N400 diode with right polarity

there's a diode in the sidestand switch
There is a diode in the switch but there's no need to duplicate it if you want to bypass the switch. Steve or les could probably explain why, but I can verify that simply bridging the wires at the side stand connector works just fine:thumbup

You're right, Bike pilot, the side stand works with simply bridging the wires. But on racetrack bikes with this modification, some have problems after few mounths with the sidestand relay ??? I don't know if there's a link but now i prefer switch with a small diode to protect this relay (it's also a very expensive parts, you can't buy it without the harness :-( )

No need for the diode when eliminating the switch. There is one in the switch, but it's to protect the reed switch contacts from an arc when it opens and the side stand relay causes a spike.
