    You would just cut the blue wire from the motor so you have two ends. Then one blue to one white and one blue to one white. Like an inline fuse it would work

    I don't know how to make a link to e-bay, but here is the item number of a switch that has cooler looking keys. It is the same one I used on my bike, it has 2 sets of contacts.
    Item number: 370200032345

    With all the wires exposed to the outside world what is the point? It would take less than a minute to bypass the key switch. You still have to lock it up or they'll take off with it even if it is just pedaling. You gain nothing by adding the key. Just a thought.

    Hey Mikee, the white wire from the engine does not go to the kill switch. I believe that the black from engine connects to the black from your spark plug box. Then the blue from the engine connects to the blue from your spark plug box. If you just make those connections the bike will run, but the kill switch won't work. To make the kill switch work, put one wire from the kill switch in with the black wire connection and the other wire from the kill switch in with the blue wire connection. I am sure someone will correct me if I am wrong.

    The switch that I gave the auction number for has two sets of contacts. One set makes contact when the key is turned on, and the other set breaks contact when the key is turned on. You would just use one set, and you would have another set spare to use for something else. (lights?)

    I don't have very good pics of the key switch itself. Here it is on the bike. It just happened to fit nicely into a piece of the front fork that I trimmed off.

    I believe that you would want a switch that would make contact when you turn the key on. To wire it in you would seperate your blue wires and connect one blue wire to a switch wire. Then connect the other blue wire to the other switch wire. P.S. I wouldn't put a lot of faith in the directions. You can get much more/better/easier to understand info right here on the forum.

    The switch is actually for a pocket bike and the little plug would plug into the factory wiring of the pocket bike. I have mine wired in just like the kill switch wiring that I described in post #12 of this thread. I chose the set of contacts that make connection when the key is turned off. So if I turn my key off, the contacts close and ground out the blue wire to the spark plug box. This is just like hitting the kill button. TO start the bike, you must turn the key on, thereby causing the keyswitch contacts to open so that the blue wire is no longer grounded out. Then the bike can be started and will run untill you turn the key back off.
