Side Stand Bypass Dongle 690/701/1090/1290

KTM/Husqvarna has gone to great lengths to provide a side stand sensor that cannot be tampered with.  If this sensor is to fail (or you lose the magnet) while in the field you WILL be left stranded. This product defeats the sensor and has saved countless rides from ending early. Don't get stranded with out one.....

The factory sensor does not allow gear engagement without the side stand in the "UP" position. While we understand the safety aspect there are a few issues. This is not a simple roadside repair like the old days where you cut the switch off and twisted wires together or even dug up a proper resistor to temporarily alleviate the problem. This is a 50% duty cycle square wave that would be almost impossible to duplicate without proper hardware, an oscilloscope, and knowledge in circuits/electronics. 

Carry one of these dongles on your bike for a little piece of mind should the OEM product fail. 

WARNING: This product is to be carried as a spare part and used to get you and your bike to safety when the OEM sensor fails. It is not to be installed while your OEM side stand sensor is operating normally as this allows the bike to engage gears with the side stand still in the down position which can result in property damage and/or injury. By purchasing this product you agree to assume full liability.

Husky 701 rack, drive sprocket guard & sidestand dongle

What can I say; great coms and quick delivery to the UK. The dongle does what it says on the tin, the sprocket guard looks great and keeps the sprocket clear of mud and crap and the rear rack is well made and really well thought out with all the locations for straps and Kriega loops ~ perfect. Thanks guys!

Don't Need it Until You Do

I bought this because every thread about the 701 said "this will break, you'll need it". Sure I thought, happens to everyone else but me. Sure enough, my buddies 701 has had multiple issues with his side stand sensor until finally going out. This saved our bacon. Light, small, pricey - put it in your toolkit and ride hard knowing it's there.

701 Side stand sensor delete

701 Enduro was cutting out. Used this to troubleshoot bad side stand sensor. Shop then replaced under warranty so a win on the purchase of this delete/bypass. I'll carry it with me now if it ever goes bad again.
