Thread: Kill switch?
08-24-2007 #1highrider Guest
I read through various installation guides but none really seem that clear to a layman without the jargon. the wiring to the cdi is clear join:
blue to blue
black to black
The kill switch part is confusing (at least to me). There is 2 black wires from the button on the handle bar. from readingf a lot of installation instructions it seem scetchy. one connect to the blue, but where do you affix the other wire to? is it the white wire? what does it mean by ground?

the dax install gives me the impression that the other wire on the kill switch connect to the white wire.
"STEP 9- Mount your Coil. Tip...Use 2 high
quality zip ties . Go up and over and around
the coil and zip tie it to the frame. Loop one zip
tie up and over and also through the holes
that would normally have the screws going
through them. This is a better method than
using the screws that come with the kit. You
will have a more solid mount and not break
the coil. It is not hard the break the coil ears
off using the screws...Wire Connections...Blue
to Blue and Black To Black. Also..Tie Kill
Switch to the Blue wire. The White Wire is
Generator and has a Max Output of .5 A 7.5V.
Anything that draws more Current connected
to the white wire will kill the motor. Also..If you
have a coil with the green wire instead of the
blue, then go Blue to green"

ZBox site says they should be attached one to the white wire and nothing about the other wire. Does it really matters?
"INSTALLATION OF THROTTLE / KILL SWITCH
1. Fit twist grip throttle to right side of handlebar. On some bike handle bars it may be necessary to ream out the handle ID to fit the bar so that the throttle will twist freely.
2. Join one kill switch wire to white wire from magneto and earth the remaining kill switch wire. This will ground ignition and stop the engine when the red button on the kill switch is activated.
3. Keep all wires away from heat of engine exhaust. Secure wires with a plastic ties.
4. Attach the carburetor to the engine intake tube and tighten clamp screw. Mount carburetor as level as possible and attach throttle cable."

wireing kill swich
anyone please help
my kill switch has 2 wires one black with a metal ring at the end of it and one red spliced I know the red one goes to the blue from the engine but were does the black go to the black wire from the engine or do I ground that wire to the frame? please help looked around the site but know one seems to have the same black wire with that ring on the end of it if the black wire goes to black from the engine why did they but that ring on the end.
it is to ground the switch
the eye is so you can tighten it to a screw or bolt
I put mine to the lever mounting bolt
(then it shorted and shocked the carp outta me )
ps I know this is your first post, but it is always better to post in a similar thread and bump that thread up the list
there is an excellent search feature at the top of the page

What I did was..
For the Dual Wire kill , I put one wire up in the Black, and one up in the blue. That will crow bar the black and the blue together and kills spark. I stripped enough back so I could shove them up into the barrel connectors. So..When you mash the connectors together, mash your wires up inside of them. Makes a good tight connection too. Enjoy the ride..
