electric gnome, need help

HI, I decided to start today my tambo after winter. So I placed a baterry turned on ignition. Everything works fine untill put any gear or put down a sidestand. Fuel pomp stops, speed and temp gauges disapear, lights turn off, but starter still works. Changed side stand switch, but nothing changed. It seems to me that tambo is good only for keeping it in a living room.

Yes, I think you are correct.

Seriously, the bike won't run at all with the side stand down?

Damn. That really sounds like the switch. Are you sure the switch you replaced it with is good?

It seems like it would be the S.S. switch, but it could also be the neutral switch. I'm not near the manual at this point but there should be a sender on the transmission. One other thing to check is if there is a switch on the clutch mastercylinder it would tell the computer if the clutch lever is pulled in.

If you have the engine running, pull in the clutch lever and put the sidestand down the bike should still run in gear. If it doesn't I would suspect the switch on the mastercylinder (typically these are on the underside of the MC).

You forgot one of the 2 ground cables to the battery, every symptom you descibe is what happens when only 1 of the grounds is hooked up. The ecm is taking ground through the neutral saftey switch.
