    Two wires going to it. either use a bit wire and put an end each in the block connector or cut it off and crimp the two wires together.

    Pull the plug off and try it. If it doesn't start, connect the two wires in the plug together and try again.

    I would have thought that as long as the bike's in neutral (or in gear but with the clutch pulled in) it would start with the side-stand down.

    On a lot of the Chinese bikes the block connector sits under the tank; unclipping it has got to be better than cutting.

    Mine's a y2k 800 fi and will engage the starter with the side stand down and the bike in neutral. If you select a gear it will cut out. With the stand up, and the bike in gear it will still spin up as long as the clutch is pulled in.

    Worth bearing in mind it's like that for a reason, riding away with your stand out is easy to do and can be a disaster at the first left hander.

    Twice I've seen people do that. Luckily others spotted it and chased them quickly before the first bend.

    I was wrong - the bike will cut out if the side-stand's down and you put it into gear. Must have had a brain glitch.

    Sorry for the confusion.

    Some of the 1980's Hondas had a stand with a rubber tongue that bent up when the stand was in use and stuck down and flicked the stand up if you rode away with it down.

    Then it wont start. You need to join the wires either use a bit wire to poke in both spades in block connector or cut and join together. Why not cut if you dont want it?
