is it ok to use the white wire to ground for a kill switch? i know its not for that,but...
I think I remember it being said that that is not a good idea, I don't remember what thread it was but that's how I recall it.
thats cool, i think i can just tie into one of the coil wires and ground it out to kill the engine....
the black wire comin out the engine is an earth wire.
Throwing my 2 cents in: To be honest I thought the killswitch to be a bit on the superfluous side. I mean You can kill the engine by choking it out or dropping the clutch when idling...yeah, how bout that
I use the clutch method...I don't "drop it" but I do let it out to kill them all.
Wait, can somebody clarify for me why they don't use the kill switch? I'v went the opposite route as alot of people on this forum, don't use the tension pulley and do use the kill switch lol
I bought an on/off switch from Radio Shack, paid less than 1$ if I remember right. I mounted it under the gas tank so it's not right out in plain sight. When I leave it sitting the switch is the off position. It is also easier to kill the motor while rolling right along.
to be honest iv never had a problem with the kill switch.
If it come with the kit use it.
I used the stock kill switch for four years until it fell apart, I am still using the stock no bearing tensioner....over five thousand miles on it with no problems.
Well my first build the tensioner fell in the spokes and i had to walk it home and find a new rim and all. So i'v did away with the tensioner. But the kill switch has always worked fine for me. If it does end up braking i'v got a replacement as a spare But somebody say the kill switch like shot them forward? Didn't quite follow..
