Sidestand; Ignition Circuit Cut-off System - Yamaha YZF-R3 2020 Owner's Manual

Hide thumbs



The sidestand is located on the left
side of the frame. Raise the sidestand
or lower it with your foot while holding
the vehicle upright.
The built-in sidestand switch is part of
the ignition circuit cut-off system,
which cuts the ignition in certain situa-
tions. (See the following section for an
explanation of the ignition circuit cut-
off system.)
The vehicle must not be ridden with
the sidestand down, or if the side-
stand cannot be properly moved up
(or does not stay up), otherwise the
sidestand could contact the ground
and distract the operator, resulting
in a possible loss of control.
Yamaha's ignition circuit cut-off
system has been designed to assist
the operator in fulfilling the respon-
sibility of raising the sidestand be-
fore starting off. Therefore, check
this system regularly and have a
Yamaha dealer repair it if it does not
function properly.
Instrument and control functions

Ignition circuit cut-off system

This system prevents in-gear engine
starts unless the clutch lever is pulled
and the sidestand is up. Also, it will
stop the running engine should the
sidestand be lowered while the trans-
mission is in gear.
Periodically check the system via the
following procedure.
This check is most reliable if per-
formed with a warmed-up engine.
See pages 4-1 for switch opera-
tion information.
