    Kill switch

    Is there a down side for using the kill switch to shut of the engine. Should the ignition key always be used and kill switch left for emergencies?

    From the owners manual.

    1. Engine stop switch

    Engine Stop Switch
    In addition to the ignition switch being turned
    to the ON position, the engine stop switch
    must be in the RUN position for the
    motorcycle to operate.
    The engine stop switch is for emergency use.
    If an emergency arises which requires the
    engine to be stopped, move the engine stop
    switch to the STOP position.
    Note:
    Although the engine stop switch
    stops the engine, it does not turn off
    all the electrical circuits and may
    cause difficulty in restarting the
    engine due to a discharged battery.
    Ordinarily, only the ignition switch
    should be used to stop the engine.

    I'm used to turn the engine off with the "emergency switch", I've always done it, as long as I can remember and never experienced any problem, true I turn the key in the off position right after

    I find it handy to use the kill switch if I just want to shut the engine off for a short while. Perhaps when fuelling for example. This seems to cause fewer confusions with the computer, audio system, screen position etc as it means fewer power interrupts which can glitch things.
