    Hi
    Just pulled the two connectors apart, plugged the one in the tray as you said.
    Left other ends loose, could plug them together but I haven't in case that causes any trouble but I assume it shouldn't do because it's it's own circuit.!!!
    Labelled as imobalizer, faulty.
    Will look at the clutch switch before I get it all back together .
    Thanks.

    The wiring diagram from WayneC's web site shows the engine starting safety interlock system. Essentially, engine starting is prevented in two separate ways: via the BMW relay or via the starter relay.

    BMS Relay:

    1. This will activate (and provide power to fuel pump, ignition, etc) if the sidestand is up.

    2. If the sidestand is down, it will only activate if the engine is in neutral.

    Starter Relay:

    1. With the starter button pressed, the starter relay will activate (and power starter motor) if the clutch is pulled in.

    2. With the starter button pressed, the starter relay will activate if the engine is in neutral.

    So, as Buzz says, the only reason for the engine not turning over on the starter when in gear is if the clutch switch is not functioning. I personally, instinctively, always pull the clutch in when I have to restart a bike in gear (eg when the engine has stalled) and so don't need the clutch switch safety device. If its contacts at the cable connector are shorted out then this will remove this safety feature - or you could replace the switch with a new one as this is likely to be the fault.

    To be honest, I'm not a big fan of having sidestand and clutch safety devices and I would definitely short out their harness connectors and remove the switches if I had any problems or doubts over them.
