I try to use mine occasionally, so that I can find it when the bike is lying on top of me (never happened with the 919, but it has happened with dirtbikes and dual sports). I have also had a throttle cable stick before (again, not on my 919) and you do not want to be reviewing types of kill switches in that situation.
I have some old biker friends who never use the kill switch because they say it wears out the contacts, and one day your bike won't start because the kill switch is worn out. I think this reason is BS, but I thought I would share.
