IDK about the sensor that you're talkin' about but, on the older bikes the sensor is under the front seat (I think). It has a weight mounted inside it and if the weight tips tips too far left or right the bike shuts off. So if you immobilize the weight then you have effectively bypassed the sensor. If this sensor is something like that then just immobilize the weight.

That was just a shot in the dark 'cause I've never seen the tip over sensor on an '07.

just curious, why would you want your bike to continue to run in the event of a crash?

I didn't ask this guy but, I know that stunters disable/bypass these switches so that they can do certain tricks...

What exactly broke off? Do you have pics? I'm sure that someone on here can think of something to help you.

Sometimes they work, and sometimes they dont. In my crash last April, my bike came to rest on its right side, hanging the throttle, making the engine bounce of the limiter until I shut it off. When I first got the bike, I had a near miss with an old man in an Isuzu Pup who pulled out in front of me. I stopped the bike within 3ft of the drivers side door of the truck, but lost my balance because I was leaned so far over the front of the bike (improper braking skills yes, I was caught off guard ) , and tipped it over. I liked to have never got that fucker cranked back! Even trying to roll it off it wouldnt crank, and then, mysteriously, she fired right up. Tip sensor I assumed.

Make sure they look under "fuel injection parts" of the parts catalog. Its called a vehicle down sensor.
