    the frame will conduct same as a steel frame so you can do it like it was a steel frame.

    With aluminum frame's I just mount the kill off the black wire off the engine, but Norman is right.

    I just don't like extra things dangling off my bike. I wire my kill switchs to the white wire...

    Another though from the Crazy Ol' Phart; You might want to coat the connections with dielectric grease. The dissimilar metals,
    (steel / aluminum) have an adverse effect on each other causing them to corrode.
