          Kickstand switch, don't file. Grab a can of good old WD40 and spray
          that baby until it cries. Work the kickstand back and forth and make
          sure that the switch's two securing bolts are tight. Bet it works

          Oh and just in case you are one of those folks that do not know better...make sure you have the bike on its center stand before you do the wd-40 stuff. I would hate to see you sue Bruce for giving you incomplete directions.Ed :o)

            See there Ed, he is not even from Texas and it is obvious he is a
            good ol' boy just like us. Heck, I hardly every use that
            centerstand, I just growl at it and tell it stand straight while I am
            gone or I will leave it for good at a the local leather bar. Works
            eveytime.
