Emergency Side Stand Sensor Bypass Dongle for KTM 790
With the new era of over-complicated sidestand sensors it is easy to be left stranded by a non-functioning safety device. Our product solves that inconvenience.
The Dongle is equipped with a toggle switch which allows the rider to switch between Safe Mode (factory setting) and Bypass Mode where the sidestand sensor is ignored.
Many aggressive off-road riders choose to bypass this safety switch off the pavement due to the engine cutting out if the sidestand/kickstand is bumped downward momentarily. If you case a jump and engine cuts out due to sidestand inadvertently flicking downward you’ll likely end up over the bars….its happened to us here. There is a time and a place for this safety device but likewise for it to be turned off.
Typically we have created a bypass dongle that is plug and play. There is usually a connection where the sidestand safety sensor terminates and we ask the customer to replace the sensor with a dongle that shares the same end connection. This of course should only be done in an emergency situation where you have been left stranded due to a faulty sidestand sensor.
We had to approach the 790 differently because this connection is located beneath the fuel tank/battery/ecu/etc… and requires a multitude of tools and disassembly time to access. We could not offer an emergency device that is almost impossible to install in the field. We do not want people to install the product if the safety sensor is operating properly and this is what would happen in the confines of the garage where tools and time are prevalent. Therefore, this product can be permanently installed in the garage, wired in line with the sensor, and with a flick of the toggle switch the sensor can be bypassed in a time of need. Please see the full installation video in the How-to Video… tab above.
Note: This product is to be used for off highway/racing purposes only and is not intended for use on public roads.
