Exclamation Safety Warning Side Stands!!!

WARNING, THE PIN ON THE BACK OF YOUR SIDE STAND MOUNT CAN WEAR THROUGH!

WHEN IT DOES IT SHUTS YOUR ENGINE REGARDLESS OF WHAT SPEED YOU'RE GOING, THIS CAN KILL YOU

This is the pin that holds the spring bracket......

Mine failed as I backed my bike out of the garage and parked in the alley, the springs and bracket were just behind the bike

CARRY SOME ZIP TIES, SO YOU CAN TIE THE STAND UP!!!......remember you will have to do this while sitting on the

bike, unless you can lean it on something on the right.....

OTHERWISE, YOU'RE WALKING

For those of you with intermittent cut out problems that can't be explained otherwise, the side stand is a prime suspect.

You can bypass that side stand switch altogether ( as I'm sure your aware)

Of course you do so at your own risk.

But that doesn't hold the side stand up !!! Which is the problem Noel had.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

I presume this is across the model range? Did they ever do a recall?? Is there a bolt-on replacement, or do you have to replace OEM and then wait for that to fail too???

Hi @Diablo: Nope it is a one-off at this time.

It is simply something that happened to a well used bike.

on my 2014 F4RR i have this issue where when i ride no matter what speed or gear the throttle stops to work, i cannot accelerate no matter how hard i turn the throttle

after awhile the engine shuts down (or instantly when i pull the clutch)

Side stand switch will kill engine immediately if you are in gear.... So that is probably not it.

Maybe your fuel filter is plugging up and engine is starving for fuel.? How many miles? You should start a new thread for this.

thanks will do

the bike has 50 miles now

the thing is that i cleaned the tank already but i think its some electrical issue because when it happens the engine doesn't die and i cannot increase throttle no matter how much i turn the throttle
