SOURCE: bypass kickstand switch

Depending if the switch is normally open, or normally closed (you failed to provide YEAR/MAKE/MODEL, so there's no way to tell), try unplugging the wires from the switch (two wires).
If that doesn't work, unplug and jump the two wires together.

SOURCE: how do I bypass kickstand switch

Remove the switch and detach at the harness connector. If the bike starts now you have bypasses it. If it doesn't start you will need to make a jumper wire and connect that to the harness where the switch used to plug in. Which method will work depends on if it is set up to be normally open or normally closed to run. One of these two methods will work for you though.

SOURCE: How do you bypass kickstand kill switch on a R1200CL

What you propose isn't wise unless the kickstand is to be removed. Lots of people forget to lift the stand and sometimes that causes a nasty.

If the switch has two wires to it you need to know whether it is normally open or normally closed when the stand is up. I expect it will be normally closed so by-passing it will be a matter of connecting the two wires together. If it is normally open it should not need any action at all.

If the switch has more than two wires it will be a matter of checking on the wiring diagram for an answer.

2006 Kymco Xciting 500 I will not turn over


Hi, Dean before testing any electrical component in the Starting Circuit it is "IMPERATIVE" that you have a fully charged battery of 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage, the battery is faulty and must be replaced. AGM type batteries fall into this scenario more so than lead-acid batteries.
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Engine Run Switch is "FAULTY" or corroded.
4. Check the battery terminals for damage or corrosion check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter.
5. Bank angle sensor needs a reset or is faulty.
6. FOB battery low or dead.
7. Faulty ignition switch.
8. Faulty starter button.
9. Faulty kickstand, clutch, neutral safety switch.
10. Security alarm needs a reset.
11. Starter relay, solenoid, starter motor or circuit wiring faulty.
12. Starter armature or field coils have failed.
13. Main fuse or circuit breaker may be blown or faulty.
14. Faulty ignition relay.
15. The electric starter is working but starter clutch has failed.
16. Check for engine trouble codes.

When i put gear my 250 venox quit.what need to do.


Check kickstand interlock. If you have a switch at your kickstand, this is used to prevent driving with the kickstand down. You can bypass the switch by pulling off the connector and trying to start. Also try to put a shorting wire across the connector terminals. If the bike will go into gear, you have a bad interlock switch.

No power on my Kymco Zing 125


your best try is to contact your dealer, and get them to order you the short red wire that runs from the + terminal on the battery, to the starter soleniod ( also has a thin red wire that runs to fuse holder) i had exactly the same problem and this solved it. i have however re done all the electrical connections on my bike using 7amp wire and bullet connectors, as i have had many faults with the electrics before.
My bike is a Kymco Cruiser 125 (almost exactly the same bike, i use kymco zing parts when replacing) i paid approx £16 GBP for the wire.
