Just picked up a 2001 RC51 and the kickstand sensor was disconnected. I can't seem to find out where it gets plugged into. I must be overlooking it, but have no idea where to plug in. Will that also prevent the bike from starting?

It won't prevent the bike from starting so long as you're in neutral. It will prevent the engine from running when in gear though.

Still cannot find where to plug in kickstand sensor into for 2001 RC51. Its not under the seat or behind, cable not long enough. Any one have any idea.

Took expansion tank off, looked in rubber boot and no plug. Thinking its tucked in near engine and frame. Have no idea. Looked for a good hour.

I have the diagram, but unfortunately I cannot locate the wire. Wondering if its tucked in somewhere.

the kickstand sensor is a green small connector, usually to the left of the rear cylinder head. there is a bunch of other connectors near it.

if its not there and the bike still runs without a sensor, someone may have blanked it off.

It should be exactly where Wibbly's diagram is pointing (top arrow pointing down). Mine was tucked in behind the frame and shielded by a clear rubber boot. Should have two wires and the connector is green I believe. If it was disconnected properly and the bike runs when in gear, there will be a jumper wire in the connector to allow the bike to run in gear. Hope that helps.
