Thanks everyone. So if I turn the engine off with the ignition key, and then after that hit the kill switch, nothing bad will happen?
Also, if I leave the engine stop button in RUN always (like when the bike is turned off), it won't kill the battery or anything?
I guess my question is: for all of you whose bikes are parked and off right now, is your engine stop button on OFF or RUN?
Thanks in advance,
I always use the kill switch to turn off the engine. Reason be:
It's easier to access.
It eliminates that embarrassing moments where the engine doesn't start due to the kill switch accidentally being turned off. Turning the switch on before pushing the start button is like second nature to me now.
In order to use it in an emergency, I think you better use it regularly.
As for "the damage", I don't see how it could damage anything on the bike. Pulling off the cable while the PC is on is bad because the PC needs to write what's in the memory(RAM) to the hard disk before shutting down, otherwise it'll lose data. ECU on the other hand, doesn't have a hard disk and you aren't even turning it off. You are just cutting the current to some engine parts, not turning off the ECU. Each to their own though.
