    I can see some benefit from it on a GS if one was doing some relatively serious off road work .....on the RS ? imho a waste of money :)

    I fitted the Wunderlich version to mine as once you fit crash bars it requires the removal of the fairing that would normally protect the switch. One rock in the wrong place and byebye switch.

    Is the switch normally open or closed? If it was torn off would the bike run or stop?

    Thanks for the comments. I think if the switch is torn off or damaged the bike thinks that the sidestand is down and kills the engine. I imagine you could work out some way to bypass if needed though. I agree that it would make much more sense on a GS.
