Starter button cover
 
I've always wondered if there's a reason to use the starter button cover on a regular basis? :confused: The only reason I've ever flipped it down was to turn off the engine really quickly.

TIA

Safety classes will teach you it's the only way to kill the engine. Never used it on my previous bikes but now I always use it as I usually kill the bike as I roll to a stop or pull into my garage (it's loud and I have kids), plus I often look over trip data before turning the key.

I honestly don't know if there's a technical purpose for it over the key.

Much faster with the kill switch in case of emergency. If your engine goes nuts and just go full rev for instance.

good point, NewRider. It's a good muscle memory to have.

I think I have used it once when I wanted to change the engine settings.

I like this style kill switch... Since it covers the starter button you're never that guy that is keying the starter and scratching his head trying to figure out why it won't turn over :rolleyes:

I agree. I never use the kill switch. Always turn the key to turn off the engine.
