Just bridging the contacts for the ecu to see a closed circuit so it should not matter. I used a piece of 20 guage wire that I had the green seals have a bit of  give on wire size I could have went up a size without much worry.

 

If one didn't want to bypass the kickstand, its still not a bad idea to make a jumper and put it in your tool kit in case its needed, the connector is behind the lower left hand corner of the radiator and could be plugged in on the trail if needed.

If you do damage the switch on the trail, you won't be stranded! Just cut the wires near the sensor and twist them together.

Looks like this would be the perfect time to run a cable to from the point near the radiator to a push button on the handlebar for a secondary kill switch to use trailside in order to retain the ABS setting.

I cut the wire, twisted them together with a waterproof connector. Its been that way for 13k miles now. Super simple.
