    Engine light Side Stand.

    Hi guys not posted for a while, since being stood outside a dealers for 3months my bike has developed a side stand fault, BMWs and Motoscan both report the same fault, 3A1331 Side Stand, I've done the obvious and replaced the switch, same fault unfortunately, side stand down Engine fault light for a second then off, stand up no fault however if its ticking over on the centre stand with the side stand down, it intermittently throws up the engine light and starts running lumpy/stuttering, this in itself seems like it's not a problem, however I'm concerned it could start while riding along, any ideas? My next steps is to check the wiring, I'm guessing it's patched into the harness as well.

    Check the wiring for the switch where it goes behind the front sprocket cover...they sometimes get pinched behind the cover.

    I've done a visual check and the obligatory wiggle, going to just bridge the wire, rule out the switch and take it from there, if it's the wire I'm hoping it's a part separate to the loom.

    Have you physically removed the sprocket cover to check for pinched wiring..??

    Yeah of course, motoscan can also see the switch actuating when I move the stand, so it's looking more like wiring, I also wiggled the wires while on live parameters to see if any of stand values changed, but no, so I'm guessing it will be a trace back to see where it connects to, then the multimeter
