Ok...first thing first! check to see if your bike has a diode in the circuit i know that some suzuki models have diodes in the system...what i do know is that you just need to short the connector for the kickstand, could just snip the connector offand get one of those quick connector things down at walmart or just run a wire that will go from one side of the connector to other

So i'd just cut and splice, the wires? Whats that diode for, I dunno much about electronics, but if its only cut'n'splice, I ll do it right now. Thanx BTW.

Diode is basically a one way switch...it will only let electricity flow in one direction and is normally built into the side stand switch itself...
