I usually use the ignition switch. On occasion, I use the kill switch. I rarely use the kickstand switch except to test it to ensure it works. I haven't run out of fuel...yet!

I think it does if you run out of fuel.

If I remember right I'm sure the owners manual does say
not to use the kill switch.

I have an annoying habbit, the key must go into the ignition switch with the narrow side facing forward EVERY time. It shits me to see it the other way round.
Glad I got that off my chest.
