Had a lowside about three months ago and have long since repaired the bike. I was pretty deep in a corner to my knee and without warning I was on my back before i knew what happened. Well at the time I didnt think much of the switch. But today I was riding a standup in 2nd playing around between bp and beyond and the engine died and needless to say i about shitted. It came down hard but i didnt lose it thank God. After it was down it stayed dead for about 5-6 seconds and came back on. Ran fine and this has never happened before. I always thought the tip switch was for side to side tip over but was told this could have been the cause. Anyone with similiar experiences.??? p.s.

Most likely the lowside wasn't due to the switch, I raced my 750 for a few years and left the switch just like it came stock. And it also doesn't sound like that was the problem with your wheelie either, because when the tip over switch is triggered and shuts your bike down, you have to cycle the ingnition off then back on for the bike to even start again. It could have been a low fuel problem or something, of the sort if it was a very long wheelie, but don't think it was the Tip over switch, if you had to cycle the ignition then yea it was the tip over.
