Angry Side stand switch faulty

it appears that the side stand switch which operates the safety feature which prevents you moving off with the side stand down is working intermittently. Had a hairy ride around a left hand corner the other day - luckily no cars coming the other way.

After getting home i checked for lose wires, tapped it with a hammer and it performed as it should for about a week - coincidence i think.

today it is not working and i now have to make sure i don't get distracted before engaging gear.

Anyone else with this problem.

does Triumph read these forums or do they wait for dealers to tell them there is a safety problem?
