Default Re: kill switch

This is to back up Bikeguy Joe...
I never hook up the kill buttons on any of my bikes!
I have never had a problem with the clutch from using it to stop the engine! I don't know why people say the clutches in the chengines are weak??? I ride my bikes hard & have NEVER had a problem with them.
If anything, the CDI / magcoils in the engines ARE notoriously weak & I would rather not have to ground them out to kill the engine.
The argument of, "what if the throttle gets stuck wide open" is probably the only good one i've ever heard on the "pro kill switch" topic. (but there are other ways to shut it off.)

If the throttle gets stuck wide open, put your feet down after you stop the bike with your brakes.
