Has anyone had an issue with the bike going past 43o lean angle in a turn?

WebCrush

the issue isn't that you'll trigger it from simply leaning over, but in the case of a slide/catch its quite easy to set it off.

I filled mine with silicone.

Does the silicone do? make the sensor think is at 0 all the time or clog it so at can't move to the 43o mark?

I never filled mine in.

I've had the bike leaned over far enough to grind the stock pegs.  

But i like that fact that when i crash and the bike is on its side the motor shuts off,  instead of running on for a minute without getting any oil !

my 2 cents

Note that the newer Suzuki tip over switch (at least on the 03 SV650) is completely different than the one in the photo.

fill the sensor with glycerin.  It will slow down the reaction time but in the event the bike is on its side it will still shut off.

I filled mine with silicone.

Filling with silicone is common fix.  However, silicone makes it very hard to convert it back.  I simply put two zip ties on eah side of the ring.  The zip ties don't give the ring enough room to move and are easy to remove when the time comes.

PS - Crush is right about how it triggers.  You shouldn't have any problems just leaning over in the corners.

damn virus out on the public networks is clogging up all the local routers so everything is running slow.

reason I siliconed my dead was cuz

1--it was a racebike with no chance of going back

2--i've yet to crash on the damn thing and have the engine keep running

smoke

cool  thanks all
I will be filling it in as its never going to be anything but a race bike and I've had bad rear slides that have almost put me on my azz on the old bike.

Any idea where I can find the one on an '03 R6.

Mine caused me not to finish a race 'uz I couldn't get it to cycle back on. :-/

Until I got back to the pits >:( >:( >:(
