    Smile Rough Guide To Install A Killswitch

    There's various ways of doing this.

    This is how I did mine and it works well.

    Depending on what kit you have, there maybe some soldering involved, you will only need to solder when a stop button is not included in the kit you have purchased.

    If you purchased a kit with a stop button, then it's simple plug and play, some kits come with spade connectors so it's only a matter of popping them onto the existing stop button

    what a great idea with the in line plugs.

    Only recently did i have to take my engine out and realized i needed to pull the kill switch apart too i shall be looking into a connector!

    The other thing is you filed a slot to let the wire out, i have posted mine through the engine case which then lead to behind the fuel tank and round the other side of the chassis meaning the wire is completely hidden

    great guide. rather than make a hole in the plastic shroud on the engine i just put the wire in the grommet along with the ht lead.

    it can also go up inside from the bottom left with no holes but i found this was tight to the cylinder head

    Hi Jas,

    If you look at the images in the 2nd and 3rd post on the first page, it shows you how to do it.

    I'll post images here:






    You will need micro deans connectors for this, you can use any connector but these are small and compact.

    Thanks Topper. I did see that, but I am wondering about how I actually attach the micro deans connector. Do I cut the wire in half and solder?

    Sorry, sounding a bit thick here!!!

    Any chance you could explain in easy steps?

    Cheers very much.
