Kill switch
« on: June 26, 2013, 08:56:10 pm »
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.
