How can I bypass the Tip / Vehicle Down Sensor

I wrecked my bike last weekend and need to fire the engine up for potential buyers. I found that the tip sensor had been pulled out and destroyed(all the innards are missing). I searched but cannot find how to bypass the sensor. I do not want to pay or wait for a new one because the bike cant ride as it is anyways(brake lever broken, reservoir destroyed) I just need it to start to prove the engine is ok.

The wiring is BR/BK-Ground, Y/G- Output, BL-Power. Im thinking I can simply splice the the power into the output? Or will I need some sort of resistor?

What year model?

I haven't looking into bypassing a TOS, but it cant be hard to do. I'm assuming the wieght inside the sensor either opens or more likely closes a set of contacts. If so, yes, you can jump the power source to the output wire. You will need to see what signal the ECU is looking for. + or -

Do you have the service manual?
