Hi! From Spain. Sorry for my English...
I have a problem with my VRSCDX 2008 and nobody knows why.
When I've been riding for a long time, I get the message “SIDE STAND”, but it's not.
I have changed the battery, I know it can give that error for a low voltage, so I changed it and put a voltmeter to always see the battery charge. Everything is correct, 14.0 v with the bike started and the battery is always above 12.5 v with the engine off.
The sensor seems to be fine, when it gives the error, I put a metal plate on the sensor and it keeps giving the error. It usually fails when I've been riding for a long time and I can't stop anymore, because if I stop, when I put a gear the motorcycle stops for safety.

I see that in the USA you have more passion for VROD than here, to see if you can help me.

Thank you!

Sorry, we don't use those here. Have you replaced it yet?/ I suspect it's the sensor itself. If you know the resistance value or can get it when it's behaving correctly , rig up a resister of equal value to fool it for testing purposes. That will at least confirm if it's the kickstand sensor or not.

it's a good idea, I'll try to see if it keeps the error or not.

Thanks!
A bit more info. As you can see the NA models use a dust cover where the sensor wire would plug into. That dust cover is #72519-09BK The sensor itself is 50277-08A. . At least with the pic, you can track the power , ground and signal connections. The sensor hall effect would be the signal for the ECM.
