Starting the Engine with the Side Stand Down

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.

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.
