Mark, I think that's a fun Idea...You will need a switch or ignition to operate with advice I can offer for a hardwire connection I would go to a local autoparts store and get a simple key operated on/off ignition and install it to where you can have constant power, an on and off position and an accessory switch cost is less than $20 mount it some where easily accessible and out of the way at the same time bc some mounting locatins the key may risk being bent or broken off...

1990 dr 250s(street) switching back to dirt only. what electrical do I have to leave on the bike for it to start. I have removed lights and horn. Removing the wiring harness and battery.

At a a minimum, you will need the magneto (inside left engine cover), the regulator/rectifier (right side, under seat -- has fins on it), the CDI (under seat, at front of airbox), and enough wiring harness to connect the 3. You should put a large capacitor in place of the battery. You will need to jump the sidestand and clutch safety switches, as removing them will cause a no-start condition.

Why wont my bike start when it gets hot ?....

Hi, Stacey and the usual suspects are:
1. Faulty ignition coil.
2. Faulty spark plug cables.
3. Faulty temperature sensor.
4. Faulty starter motor.
5. Valves adjusted too tight.
6. Spark plug gap too wide.
7. Fuel has vapor lock.

How to change the spark plug

i'm not sure what kind of bike your working on but here we go, older sports bikes and in line motors:the best thing to do here is remove the body (if it has one) sometimes you can get the socket in without removing the gas tank. best if you do tho it WILL make it easier.New sport bikes: start with the seat remove it then the tank now the airbox, after you have all this apart you should be able to get into the spark plug caps. Be careful here because most of the new bikes use a cap the also acts like the coil, it will have a plug with two wires remove that from the cap and remove the cap from the motor. take your time do one at a time and put it back together they the you took it apart. v twin bikes like harlys and bikes that look like then will have the spark plugs on the side of the motor sometimes under covers that may pull off or have screws. World of powersports is a site that shows micro phish. this is a part break down that you can use to find part numbers and where things are at in the bike.
Good luck my friend
