Need a kill switch???

I currently have no kill switch on the bike ive recently bought. Ive spoken to a few people with bike and theyve told me that the best way to stop it is to stall it?! Some one also suggested stopping it with the decompression lever on the clutch?!

As in not over clued up i dont know whether this was accurate information. However i dont really like the sound of either tbh. I'd imagine fitting a kill switch would be the best option. Anyone got any idea how to do this, as i don't..?

I was wondering if you experts out there could fill me in with what i need to know?

cheers

RE: Need a kill switch???

I take it you dont have an ignition switch then ? as this would be the obvious one.
I probably cant really help you mate but someone will be along pretty quick ....

oh and have you downloaded the owners manual ? Check the 'owners doc' on the left hand side of the forum. The wiring diagrams can help loads in situations like this, as long as you can read them you're laughing ! Id be looking at the diagram at the kill switch on there and seeing if i could tally up any cable colours/connectors around the handlebars/behind headlight/around coil area ...

Does it have Kokusan or SEM ignition? 2004 was supposed to be the change.

If it has SEM, connect any reliable pushbutton between the orange kill wire coming out of the CDI and anywhere on the frame. Shorting this wire to ground stops the spark and hence the engine. You should be able to buy an aftermarket kill switch to use for the pushbutton.

If it has a Kokusan the kill wire on the CDI should be black with a yellow stripe or yellow with a black stripe.

Your right there mate there's no ignition switch. Infact theres not a great deal on it electrical wise. Taken off the front light, rear/brake light, indicators and it never had a speedo on it when i got it.

I am left with a horn though and a few connectors at the front end of the bike, which are currently taped up. I'll have a look at them and see if i can match any up to the wiring diagram for the bike.

As for which ignition system the bike has i'd guess at the Kokusan one. But i'll check when i get chance. Thanks BundyBear for identifying which wires im looking for. That's a great help mate!

cheers

RE: Re: RE: Need a kill switch???

Ok mate, the wires that need shorting, as mentioned above by BundyBear, to kill the engine are the orange and black coming from the Ignition module. My killswitch (theres two !!) connectors, from the bars, lead to behind the headlight (where your group of wires are) where they plug into the loom.
Now ...

The left hand side killswitch, plugs into a 6-pin connector behind the headlight. the pins are in a 3x2 formation like the number 6 on a dice and the loom wires are coloured as follows:

White
blue
brown
yellow
red
green

So first off look for that connector in your bunch and see if you can see that one (as that could be used)

The right hand side killswitch is in a 1x4 formation so 4 in a line. The colour wires from the loom to this killswitch are as follows:

Red/yellow
Red/White
Brown
Black

either of these will do but if you dont have the original killswitch or suitable connector you will probably have to cut into the loom to connect your new kill switch (or remove the connectors from the block and use the wire ends themselves)

Unfortunately these wires change colour between the killswitch and the orange+black at the cdi so some cross referencing with the diagram will be needed to get the right wires. (sorry didnt look that far into it)

see if you can locate these connectors and we'll take it from there !
hope this helps a bit, we'll get you a kill switch sorted

cheers for that Smithy!

I didnt have chance to look last night, but ive got some pics up of my bike. ive included the one of the connectors however non of them seem to be any that you've described.

I think i'll have to connect a new wire to the one i need comming out of the cdi unit and just run enough cable to where the button if going to be. Currently got a horn and electric start buttons on the bars so might put the kill button sumwhere on the frame.

Here a link to the pic of my unknow connectors..... http://www.husaberg.org/index.php?set_a ... _photo.php .....check the bike out while your there

cheers
Dennis

RE: Re: RE: Need a kill switch???

Alrite Dennis, had a look at yer bike, i really like those colour schemes ! Looks real nice. trying to decide exactly how i want mine to look ...

I'll nip out to the garage in a min and check those connectors for you and identify them see if we can use them, if we can get the orange wire at the headlight area then the other side of the switch im guessing we can just earth in situ ...

On Fleabay UK at the moment there is a used kill switch which includes all the light and horn switches too, item number 260357287243, sounds like just what you need.
