Mine failed this morning
So...I saw this post the other day and thought about taking my safety switch off. Well, today made the decision for me. I was riding the back roads from work to home (total trip of about 40 miles), when a rock came up and hit the frame left under my left foot peg. My bike instantly died.
It ended up being that the rock hit the safety switch wiring as it wraps under the frame of the bike. The rock hit just right and severed the wire. I was able to do a quick fix by stripping back the wires (with my teeth) and tying them together to get her running in gear again.
Anyway, before this incident, I didn't really think there was much way for the safety switch to cause an issue. I stand corrected!!
