Guys,

Do I need the kill switch in the circuit with my boyer or can I just cut the wire. I have never used the kill button and it is causing me lots O grief with intermittent firing in the plugs.

Thanks

No you don't need the kill switch, but you will have to connect the white/yellow* wire to the white* wire from the harness, as the switch works (kills) by opening the circuit (cutting the battery supply to the ignition circuit), and not by earthing/grounding the circuit.

*The wiring and wire colours could have been altered at some point so check first.

Have a look at this thread. I rather lost the argument then, so I'm not joining in again :oops:

The answer, though, is yes, you can run without the switch but you will need to join the wires together to by-pass the switch.

You beat me to it this time, L.A.B!

Thanks for the info on the kill switch. With as much trouble as this has caused me I wanted to double check about a jumper or not before causing myself more problems.

All the wireing around the kill can be done in the headlight. It also can be rehooked up for plug chop testing. I have found like you that they will always fail after a ride in the rain so if you have one, know how to fix it on the side of the road.

Dear Britty...

Remember that old cartoon where the fellow dying of thirst rushes to the waterhole in the desert and before he gets a drink, the skull of the longhorn speaks out in a spooky voice...."You'll be soooorrrrrryyyyyy..."?

Thought of that cartoon when I read this thread...get it fixed instead of removing it, and you will be happy you did, someday.... :wink:
