I got a fair warning that it's a bad habit to make, as that's not how you're suppose to use it.In an emergency would anyone think of the kill switch? I wouldn't because I never use it. Maybe it would be good to use the kill switch as a shut-off every day so you remember in an emergency. I can't imagine an emergency where you would need to use the kill switch but maybe that's exactly the emergency that you need to train for. How many times I have been surprised by the emergency I didn't prepare for when I thought I was prepared for the emergency I expected?
You do realize that the kick stand does exactly the same as the kill switch? They are on the same set of wires, the exact same ones. Those wires are also the very same ones that your ignition uses.I use the kickstand to "kill" the engine. Dont like the switch as i dont like to shut down my pc by pressing the on/off button...but i cant imagine how it should damage the engine. When i got the bike i once wanted to ride and it didnt do anything when i turned the key and for a few moments i paniced, then noticed the flipped killswitch...
Yes, i understand that. I only said i dont like to kill it by the switch. Moreover, as somebody mentioned, by using the kickstand it tests it and ist very practical. Im not afraid of damaging it by the killswitch, but it seems like some people are. :wink2:You do realize that the kick stand does exactly the same as the kill switch?

So if it's not bad for the engine to turn the key to "off" then I'm pretty sure you ain't gonna mess anything up by using the kill switch either, or the kick stand. All they do is simply cut the power supply.
