    I wish I could use the TTSE TPMS before  I start the engine, as I do in my other TPMS vehicles.

    I wish I could start the bike with the sidestand down.

    You should be able to start the bike with the sidestand down...  I do every day.

    There is a safety interlock to prevent you riding off with the Side stand down -
    the engine will cut out as soon as you shift out of Neutral if it is down,
    but like brenchley says, you should be able to start the engine ( in Neutral ) with it down.

    Owners Manual Page 63 (my Bold ) :
    Note:
    Even if the clutch lever is pulled to the handlebar,
    the starter will not operate if the side stand is down and a gear is engaged.
    Owners Manual Page 71 :
    The motorcycle is fitted with an interlock system
    to prevent it from being ridden with the side stand in the down position.
    Cheers  :821:

    Nope, bike will absolutely not start with the sidestand down in neutral. I have to pick up the sidestand to start it. I guess I'll have the dealer check that out when I have them check on the am/fm radio that doesn't work at all.

    What year is your bike?  There was a TSB on defective neutral safety switches in 2013 maybe in to 2014.  Topic has been addressed and you can find thread references with a search

    Can you start it with the clutch engaged with the sidestand down?

    I didn't realize there was any error, so I didn't look anything up. My bike is a 2014, built toward the end of the year IIRC. It will start in neutral with the sidestand down only if I pull in the clutch lever; I didn't even realize that until this thread as I assumed not starting in neutral (without pulling in the clutch lever) was some kind of extra safety feature. I assume it should start with the sidestand down WITHOUT the clutch being pulled as long as the bike is in neutral (as my other two bikes do)? If so, as I mentioned, that's another thing I need to have the dealer look at.

    You have to pull the clutch in even if you are in neutral.  Odd, but that is how it is.  I learned that at the dealers as I was about to ride off.
