Re: Lean angle sensor, remove or keep it
The story about it killing the bike while leaned over is crap. The unit is a penduluum in a box full of oil with contacts on either side. If you knock the bike over it will still take few seconds to cut the power. Try unbolting it, keep it level, run the bike in neutral, quickly turn the unit on its side and wait for it to shut off. Now here is where the crap stories get thick. When you are in a good lean, where is the weight of the bike going? Yep, straight down into the tires. So where would the weight of the penduluum go? Yes straight down as if the bike were standing still, straight up and down. If the unit gets damaged or something happens that it loses the oil inside (I think you might notice that), the weight would swing quickly and shut the bike off taking it off the stand. So this is an easy one, keep it. Besides, most racing orgs. require it to be there.
