So when I dropped my Bonnie in the parking lot the other day, I didn't have the presence of mind to hit the kill switch as I was trying to lay it down, instead I must of wound open the throttle and the motor screamed until it lost consiousness after a few seconds. After picking it up and riding home the motor seems ok but is it detrimental to scream the engine like that? And does it have an automatic cut-off in the event of a spill?
Your '09 SE has a tip-over safety switch that detects when the bike falls down and turns injection and ignition off. It resets when the bike is picked up again.
It's described here:
It also has a rev limiter so no mechanical damage from over-revving either.
