gen 2 kill switch on gen 1 ???
hi guys, can this be done? I dont mind soldering into contacts to connect the CDI wire to ground if I have to, but I don't have a gen 2 switch to play with so I dont even know if there are any contacts available to solder into on the 'kill' position.
GEN 2 Kill switch - disconnects the ignition coil signal on 'kill'
GEN 1 Kill Switch - grounds the CDI/magneto wire to kill the engine
so it sounds difficult studying the wiring diagrams. the route I came with is to have "run" on a gen 2 button actually kill the bike, but that is confusing.
my motivation is thriftyness - gen 2 is $20 for assembly, gen 1 is 60-100 $. I spent 5 bucks on a 'generic kill switch' and it is a cheap momentary switch that I use to ground the CDI wire to kill the bike. it works, but takes up handlebar space and is not in a convenient location.
