The side stand switch on the Harley-Davidson Pan America is completely unprotected in a seriously vulnerable position where larger stones can cause direct damage. This is an extremely annoying shortcoming on difficult terrain, as the switch needs to be bypassed.
It's only when the side stand switch stops working and the bike refuses to start that you realize just how important this component is!
Touratech's protector for the side stand switch on the Pan America is a resilient guard made from high-grade aluminum that effectively prevents damage to the switch - so it won't stop you in your tracks.
A little part that's extremely functional!
