Default Pressure switch broken

Well I took my bike to the dealer to have the brake line recall done and he called me out into the shop... when he took the passenger floor board off he noticed my oil pressure switch connector was just hanging thereís. Apparently the kick stand had swung back too far and broke the little nipple for the connector off the switch. Just ordered a replacement.. it doesnít look difficult to replace. I noticed marks on my frame from my kickstand. May e I need to gat one of the HOCKEY PUCK THINGS.? Any suggestions?

Hmm guess I'll look for that on mine.
I would assume by design it should not be hitting like that. Is your kickstand loose on it's mount?

No not loose at all. I would have never known this unless the dealer did the recall fix. Iím surprised the bike didnít complain because it was disconnected.

I just looked at it and I don't see how it could possibly hit that.
Something funky there.

Not near a bike but is it possible the offending stand has bent?

Hockey puck stands won't prevent yer problem.

Take a good look at the wiring... check to see if the electrical harness has any slack at all. I've found, over time, the plastic stand-offs or loops that hold many of the small parts (and long lines like brake or electrical wiring) together get hard and brittle (and break). This may cause some damage as the parts hang down and hit things they're not intended to touch.

Pictures would help us in troubleshootin' yer problem...

thank you.

Well I put the bike up on the lift and there is NOway the kickstand could have hit that part, physically impossible . So either I ran over somethin* and it flew up and hit the part ( very possible) OR the dealer broke it when he was doing the brake line recall fix. He is right at that point. I am leaning towards the dealer tech broke it. My wife says why would he bring it to my attention? Well to detract blame from him,is my thinking. So I will wait for the new part.
But Iím still baffled by why I get no warning light with the connector just hanging there

Well I was going to say dealer did it but I thought you said there was other damage in the area.
Switch might go to ground when it is "bad" for the light and be open when "normal" so you would not have a light.
For curiosity I'll unplug mine later and see what it does.

JP
How much was the switch. If it was broke before hand your oil light would of been on. That's the same switch chevy has used for many many years Guessing $7 bucks at auto store.
