[QUOTE=NightRider;1436954]This 2017 V (don't know about previous models), same as mine, has a sensor that shuts down the engine the moment the bike is dropped on the side.
I haven't read the instructions beforehand so I learned the slow way that once you get the bike up, you can't start it until you turn the key to off first (to reset the sensor).
So in case you accidentally drop it, you should know this (hopefully you won't need it).[/QUOTE
Tip over sensor 2007 on, all have them, and yes it is a signal to the ECU, motor will crank, but won't start until you key off. Yup, how would I know that, from experience, you know one of those oh s****T and all I have is my front brake and push steering, yes, down you go. Embarrassing when riding with someone and they turn around and your laying on the road having a nap, with the bike on top of you, so you pick it up, everything is good, ignition is still on, hey lets Go. OH OH it won't start, first thing through your mind s***T , then , WTF did I break, then your brain common sense and knowledge kicks in, tip over switch, yup , been there done that. Thought we all could use some entertainment with all the disasters going on
