Re: Trail Tech Ignition Map Switch
I bought one of the Trail Tech Map Switches and started to install it on my 2011 FE 570s, but the instructions don't seem to be accurate that came with it... According the instructions, the connection is under the seat, however I notice above where someone said it was behind the headlight... I'm thinking behind the headlight is accurate as I found an open connection that fits there, but not under the seat anywhere unless I disconnect my fuel pump connection... There are also two other wires to connect (power and a ground I believe) that are supposed to replace the kill switch... My question is if I don't want to replace the kill switch do I still need to connect these wires for the map switch to work and if so, where do I connect these? Since I have the street legal "s" version, my kill switch is different than other models and it doesn't make sense or help to mess with it as it is incorporated into the same controls as the starter... Anyone know the answer to this??? Thanks in advance for any help!
