Re-connecting "Kill" switch: any ideas?

Post by t-bar12 » Thu Jun 06, 2013 5:16 pm

A previous owner of my 1988 GL1500-J got tired of the "kill" switch and disconnected it. I would like to re-connect it, as it provides extra safety if I'm ever in an accident.

As I am just learning much of this, can anyone give me some ideas of where to start to get the "kill" switch working again?
Thanks in advance . . .

I would try and see if the switch is still wired up on the handle bars,as this would be a place that he could have spliced the wire together,to keep it from killing the motor.Take care when opening the switch its self dont wont to lose any parts. If it looks ok there then you will need to follow the wires in the harness back to see if he spliced it anywhere else. Just a question why did he disconnect it in the first place? ---------------------Good luck----------Hal
