Side stand switch for 919

By setting my bike on jack stands with a bar through the centre stand mounts, I have damaged the side stand switch. A portion of the switch has broken off. It still works but I would hate to be stranded in the middle of nowhere.
If anyone has a spare and willing to part with it. Please let me know.
Thanks

Can you bypass it if needed? I know Tuono riders do it a lot.

2001 XR650R BRP (Big Red Pig)
2006 Honda 599 - Ex wrecked it :-D
2007 Honda CB900F (sold)

Any simple switch can be bypassed. It's either normally open or normally closed. Short them leave or leave them open in an emergency, I just don't want to be in a jam somewhere all alone that's all.
You know how it is. I will forget all about this and one night while I'm out..... BAM! It'll take me an hour to remember this issue.

Thanks for looking.

I'm hoping someone that has a wrecked 9er will have a spare switch. Know anyone?

I'll bump this thread once in a while.

Have you x-referenced it on Partzilla? I am willing to bet most the 2000 up honda street bikes use a similar trigger switch.

I haven't cross referenced yet. I will have a look tonight.
I did see that $4 one and I did notice the shipping price. That's why I am looking here first.

Anyone on WT in that area???

If you can ship it for about $15, I'm in! I'm in no hurry, so if you want to take a ride one day and grab it. That would be great!
Thanks. Let me know.

Really?? I was sending t-shirts all over for about $8. Across canada and all the way to southern states.
At that price. I will probably just order a new switch from the dealer. At least then it's known to be serviceable with a return policy.
I thank you for the thought.
I'll wait I guess...lol
It's kinda hard to buy something that I don't need. Even if it is only $30

That is looking online, and not sure exactly of price since it says" quote shipping". I could check at the post office to see exactly what it would be.

If you ship it via USPS First Class International it's much cheaper

Here is a quote for a 1 lb package to Canada. I'm sure the switch weighs less than that.

FYI only and it's worth whatever value you place on this -

On eBay I add a fee for my packaging materials (costs .67 charge .84) and a couple bucks for my time (I don't have profits for shipping and handling costs built into the profits of my sales).

I do charge "retail" shipping - overall, at the end of the month, I make about 20-25% on "shipping and handling" and those "profits" go to pay for my boxes (9x6x2 mailer ML962), tape (I buy the good stuff), packing peanuts, copier paper (ain't cheap) and other related supplies.

Also, there are costs to create and maintain the "business". I pay quarterly estimated income taxes and operate to the letter of the law, collecting applicable sales taxes, etc - it is not easy to sell a lot on eBay, you go over $20,000.00 a year through PayPal and you're going to be reported to the IRS, and I do not know about you, but I like to have my ducks in a row when it comes to those folks.

That switch weights next to nothing, I would charge 6oz 1st Class international rates plus my other nominal fee's - I also only ship items boxed to nearly eliminate shipping damage - Bubble bags are nice and ship cheaper, but one damage claim removed all of those savings, and more....

eBay, eBay, eBay, I live it, more than I ever planned.....

If I had that switch, I'd give it away and usually pay shipping as well, it's just how I roll.

I do have a brake light switch for the handlebar is anyone ever needs one. I just have to remember where it is - need to inventory my stuff.....

Heading to Omaha this weekend to hopefully pick up a truckload of vintage NOS Kawasaki triple parts - happy days might be here again, wait, they never left.....

So what you're saying is, it costs about $20 for a small box and a little tape? I don't believe profit should be made from shipping. Just the product.

I think I may get into the box/tape business.

Slid into a small bubble envelope it should be under $5 for shipping. I'm sure it'll be fine.

I have always charged actual shipping fee. It's not hard to offer a cheap option with a damage disclosure attached to the agreement.

I don't think it matters either way, as long as shipping and handling charges are disclosed up front. If they are unreasonable then I will look elsewhere. I'm sure some sellers use a low price as a teaser and then jack up the shipping costs to make a little extra profit.

Even with Amazon Prime and "free shipping" you have to be careful as sometimes you can buy the product much cheaper even with shipping charges added.

For OEM parts, I order them online (10% discount) from my local dealer and just have it shipped to the dealer for pickup. Usually cheaper than buying online.

No, to send a small box that weighs 6oz to most parts of Canada, I would offer 1st Class International as an option, $8.80 plus whatever my fee is to cover my costs of supplies, $2.00 is close, total $10.80

Here is as simple as it gets - if that is too much for you, please find a seller who can better meet your needs. And I'd thank you for your consideration.

I've been selling on eBay since 1999 and have shipping thousands and thousands of items. I have over 600 active right now, plus work a full time job, so time is not something I have a lot of.

Damage claims take time, I've had items damaged in bubble bags, that's an exception. But, the costs of those damage units are not worth my time and effort, I'd rather know it's going to arrive safe and the only communications I'll have with the buyer are when they want to buy something else. The less communications, the better.

The problem is, at least on eBay, you play by their rules - and any disclaimer can and has been overridden. Plus, no one wins a pissing battle, if you can eliminate the chance of one, do it.

Priority Mail is the only way many shipments overseas can be insured online.

That may be why it is the only option.

As for the comments on the rules and disclaimers on eBay listings, many of these are required by eBay in order to meet certain criteria.

For the person who wants to sell a few items, it does not matter.

It's complex to do it right, a hassle even.

And ignorant or stupid buyers are quick to be blocked by me.

Over the years, I've found that if someone is a PIA before they buy, they are even worse afterwards. Again, it's never anything personal, it's pure business - I do not have time to deal with questions that are answered in the listing, nor do I have time to pack "cheap" -

You will not catch me bending over to pick up a penny when their is a buck within hands reach.

I don't want the "cheapster" customers, nor do I want the ignorant customers - I just had a guy buy a front brake line for a ATV.

He emailed me, said it is the wrong front brake line. I provide the OEM part number and description plus "fitment" (what models the part will go on). I do not have time to say exactly where a part goes - especially a $15.00 part. I expect a buyer to make some effort to see if a part is right or not. If not, welcome to my block list.

There are plenty of customers who see value in what I offer, they pay for it and they keep coming back.

They are happy, that makes me happy.

When possible I try and buy things locally. Seems like, after you pay for shipping, you're not saving very much when buying online. And if whatever you buy is defective, you have to pay shipping again to get a warranty or exchange...

Check other Hondas, it's probably a shared part. Try the CBR f4i.

I really suck at x-referencing parts. I did an eBay check for honda stand switch and got a crap load of stuff. Most bikes from late 90s and up look like the same switch. I'll slowly keep an eye out for it.

Not touchy at all, I just live it everyday.

And I do it right, sometimes I think to a fault.

Thousands and thousands and shipments and satisfied customers, with a proven and documented business plan with a real P&L, it's a little more than a hobby for me.

If you buy a part from me, you'll know it. You'll have a tracking number within hours of paying for the item, I generally ship same day. Packaging is professional, bordering on overkill. Items are exactly as shown, and if you have any problem, I'll work with you. I meet all local, state and federal laws, pay my estimated earnings quarterly and submit any collected sales taxes as required.

All this takes work, if someone can't afford to pay a couple of bucks for this level of service, you're not the customer I want.

There are cheaper sellers out there, but none better.

No offense to anyone, that's just how it is.

Depending on the age of the bike, www.zeeder.com sells some great software for cross referencing parts.

Partzilla.com is another one of my favorites.

Access to dealer parts sites also helps, but only for the newer stuff sometimes.

I've tried to download as much data as possibly. Creating spreadsheets that ID a part number (or bar code) and give the description, price/cost and many times list fitment data.

I'll run a list of parts through this program, sort it by the most profitable way, and cherry pick those parts first.

Rock and roll!

No problem, just glad I can help. HOPEFULLY I can buy Wolverines 919, just waiting to hear back from him.

Oh, finally, in regards to shipping costs - When I list items, 40-60 a day, I have to estimate the shipping costs, and I generally try to be a little (1-2 ounces) over the actual.

Sometimes it works out, sometimes it does not.

There is not time to quote exact actual amounts, if you've ever tried to post a lot of items, you understand......

Also, taking the customs requirements, insurance, other potential costs into account, well, I quit quibbling over pennies a long time ago and when it comes to my eBay business, it's "for profit" and I follow "the code".

That being said, I've done business with members of forums that I consider to be in good standing, it's actual shipping costs on those exceptions, and sometimes, well, no worries, here is the part -

HiJack mode off, glad the switch was found and costs were inline with the buyers expectations.

Most importantly, hopefully it works, arrives quickly/undamaged and everything works out for the best, that's the name of the game.

Here's a great example of unreal shipping cost

Service Honda has great prices on OEM parts, but when you get to the checkout....

$9 to ship the oil plug aluminum washer....something you could put into an regular envelope and mail for the cost of a stamp.
