phase 2 of my electrical romance.
for me, one of the allures of riding a street-dirt bike is simplicity.
i dont like having a locked gas cap nor keeping up with a key.
lose it or snap it on the trail = no fun.
so i eliminated the key functions. the stock ignition switch is a hefty little booger, lost maybe 2 lbs. its well-documented on the web, add a couple jumpers, 100 ohm resistor & rocker switch. for security, just conceal it & leave the stock keyed ignition switch for appearance. i intend to add a 2nd switch for a little insurance the next time i find myself in another mess of wires.
