Well, use the side stand as your kill switch and the bike will remember your personal programming for you and you won't have to reset it every time you go for a ride....
That trick will only work as long as you don't turn the ignition off.
Once you turn power off, you're back to default settings.
Also, it has been reported on DCT models, that this trick may degrade PCM
performance over time. No proof, just a precaution, that there is risks
involved in trying to circumvent what the engineers have designed to do.
IMO, the convenience vs risk is overwhelmingly against this trick.
I have a DCT model. I also make sure to put bike in Neutral before
I shut off with the ignition key. YMMV(your mileage may vary)
