Question about Motorcycles
Could I make a kill switch for my 99 r1 that would turn off and turn on all the lights and power? Currently my bikes lights and everything will stay on even with the key off and out the ignition. The bike itself will cut off but the lights stay on.
Easily If you could wire it up to a relay the relay can turn off several things and turn on several things if you solder to the correct terminals. Is this for anti theft or is it in case you fall off the bike? :)

Either that or the relay that connects the positive lead to the starter is shorted. If you can get into the relay, you may be able to hold the contacts open if the switch is shorted or the contacts may have welded themselves together

Check the kick stand switch first. They are always in a location that is ideal for collecting dirt etc. Put the stand down and press the switch a few times by hand and then try starting again. Maybe even a bit of WD40 on it if it's anything like mine after being riden through the winter.
If this doesn't work, the kill switch is then worth investigating.
