Side Stand Bypass Dongle

Select Dongle Type

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.....

Please read the fitment descriptions carefully and then select the appropriate SKU above. These are two very different dongles and apply to specific makes/models and country designation. If you are in doubt, check the parts fiche and find the factory sensor part number for your motorcycle or just send us an email.

These dongles replace the factory sensor. You can locate your sidestand sensor behind the sidestand pivot point. Trace the wire from sensor upward until you get to the connector (typically located around throttle body area). With ignition off, unplug the sensor and plug in the correct dongle. 

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.

Vanasche Goodness/Lifesaver!

The folks at Vanasche are always coming up with quality parts for the off road/dual sport/adventure community and make themselves available for any questions or support you may need. Sidestand bypass dongle can be a lifesaver. I learned my lesson on a 7 day ride down into copper canyon. We were about 4 days in when the bike would not start after a break on the trail. Spent about 10 hours of trying to identify the issue, had to have the bike brought back in a locals pickup truck and then home. Only to later find out a rock had kicked up, damaged the switch and ended the ride for myself and my riding buddy.

Very expensive lesson, now it’s the very first thing I do on a new scoot. Save yourself the aggravation and get the bypass! Thank you Vanasche!!

Side Stand Dongle - I can now sleep better

Title says it all. No more nightmares about being embarrassed having to call a friend to come get me because the ridiculous side stand sensor failed.

Prud'homme Kenneth

For me is working perfectly. No need the switch on the clutch lever as well so is less electronic.
