The kill switch is a normally open momentary switch. Which means that it is only closed when you push it. If you use it to short the two wires to the CDI it doesn't matter which ones you hook it up to. Same if you use it to ground the white wire to the frame, the colors don't matter. Tecker: It sounds like you had a bad switch. How could that happen with these fine Chinese engines!?!?
If it can't be broken I'll find a way!
I'm not lost, I'm exploring!
