What should this button do? 1971 R75/5

New to me bike....has not run in 31 years but does now due to a couple of more burns to my hands.

This black button on the left side handle bar appears to have three positions plus a compression option.

Compression is the horn. What should the other three positions do? Middle nothing. Up --kill switch? Down--flasher?

So far I have no way to kill the bike besides pulling key out.


I guess you cannot attach pics any more?

/5 switches..

Left:
Up - High beam on
Middle - regular headlight
Down - High beam flash
In - horn

Right:
Up - Left turn signal
Middle - No turn signal
Down - Right turn signal
In - Starter

Also, on the /5's there is no "kill switch" other than the key.

Perfect drummerdude. That explains the no kill switch. Just need to figure out why the horn is not working now.

So the only way to turn the bike off is by pull the key out? or turning the petcocks off.

not really, but essentially

I usually stop mine by pulling up the 'nail' (aka key).
