When I had my 900, once in a while as I was coming to a stop I'd grab the clutch and coast (still in gear), put the kickstand down (still moving). This kills the engine. Then I'd brake to a stop and let the bike lean over onto the stand, with my feet still on the boards. Probably the exact opposite of how it should be done.
Normally, I'd hit the kill switch and as soon as the engine was off, turn the kill switch back on and shut the key off. If you leave the kill switch off, when you turn the key on the fuel pump doesn't prime (however, I've never had the bike fail to start because of this).
With the V2K, the key switch is on the headlight nacelle, so I just use that & rarely use the kill switch at all. No coasting to a stop with the stand down on the V2K, just cuz the stand is harder to deploy because it's located farther forward.
My biggest fear is when I die, my wife will sell all my guitars for what I told her I paid for them.
