OK.... so I'm wanting to get rid of the stock ignition set up ( weight ) and just run the " kill " switch for on / off. I'm going to leave the starter on the bike if I can but I may opt for a racing killl switch which would not have a starter button. Yes then I'd have to bump start the bike.... no big deal ( at least that's what I'm thinking ) or I could figure out a starter button somewhere on the bike.

Question/s is/are.... before I start just diving in and cutting wires that don't look needed. Has anyone here done this to their track / race bike ?

I know I could just get the racing wire harness but I'd rather spend that dough somewhere else.

Just comtemplating at this point but any constructive input would be appreciated

I hate electrical so that just sounds easier than it should be. I'll have to stare at the wiring diagrams for hours for them to make sense !!

It is easy, bikes basically have two on/off switches. One is just a security lock with a key. Just find the hot and neutral from your ignition switch and run them to your on/off switch. I'd have to look at the diagram, but you might have to keep the wires that already on your on/off switch as well, or you might not. Like I said I'd have to look at it. You could do the old trial and error, wouldn't be that hard either.
