Hi, I’M John TheMotoTech, I hope I can help you out! The kick stand sound like the problem. You can disconnect the kick stand wires and jump the wires, then try again. That will let you know if it’s the kick stand safety switch.

Are t my spacers on the tire rod suppose to be all the way? But then they are not touching the alignment bolts
Motorcycle Mechanic: JOHN DICIAULA, Auto Mechanic replied 2 years ago
You need to spin the axle so the flat spot is aligned with the spacer box.

I replaced the rear tire and got the caliper on and everything back together. Fixed the kick stand sensor. But I have no back break for some reason.
Motorcycle Mechanic: JOHN DICIAULA, Auto Mechanic replied 2 years ago
Trying just pumping it for a bit. They need to pump up after putting tire on. You may need to bleed the fluid if it won’t pump up.
