My recent “falls off at 3mph” accident was caused by the kickstand switch killing the engine while moving so I’m not a fan really. It took me a while to figure what had happened, I got moving by (as Marcel indicates) simply shorting the wires leading to the switch.

 

My switch seems to have locked (I mean really, really stuck) indicating the stand is out even when fully retracted (? dirt & vibration) so I’ve tidied up the wires to it leaving it always shorted for now.

 

I think these switches get neglected and need a little TLC occasionally as in a vunerable position.
