Just eliminate and cut off the wire to the existing kill switch the put any kill switch you want on it and take the main electrical lead to the ignition or what ever it is and put the new kill switch in the middle of the new kill switch you installed I did it before it always works just make sure to eliminate the old kill switch and its connections are no longer needed

I replaced ignition coil on a Tecumseh Toro 20018 mower. It would not start without disconnecting green "kill" wire. Now what do I need to do - replace the kill switch? Is the kill switch located on the...


It is a short in the kill switch, or the wire running to the kill switch. check insulation on the wire running to the kill switch and check the routing of the wire to insure that it is not being rubbed by moving parts, or the insulation melted by hot engine parts such as the exhaust system. Finally check that the kill switch itself is functioning properly with a test light or OHM Meter.

My zephyr 1100 has no spark at the plugs. The bike has been parked up for a few months - it ran fine before then. The battery is showing 12.5v and all other electrics work. I disconnected the side stand...


Im not sure of the exact wiring , but the side switch doesnt cut the motor in neutral, so it loops through the neutral light.
You said front brake switch has 12 v, this is correct.
There is another switch on the clutch, which also works in conjunction with the side stand.
I would be checking the ignition and kill switches

Obviously the CDI is picking up power from the starter button. Check the ignition key switch for proper operation. Chances are that whatever fried the loom also fried part of the switch. Alternate to that, trace the wire powering the CDI system, disconnect it at the source (starter button connection), then find a power source that is live only when the key is turned on and then hook the CDI wire up there.

an I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

1983 yamaha xj 650 no spark already changed the cdi coil plugs wires and mag pick up what next?


  • Do you see spark? If not, check the side stand kill switch. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. If broken or out of adjustment, it would kill the spark. Check for a broken wire at the side stand switch and coupler. Try moving the side stand kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it.
  • Is the handlebar kill switch on? Is it shorted out?
  • Are you getting power to the coils?
  • Check the fuses. How good is the battery? Try a jump start from your car battery.
  • Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter. Check the wiring harness. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral switch wire on center or side casing. If still no spark, get CDI system and coils checked at the dealers shop.

No spark


Start with a new spark plug. Check the side stand kill switch. It kills the engine so that you don’t start out with the side stand down. If broken or out of adjustment, it would kill the spark. Check for a broken wire at the side stand switch and coupler. Try moving the kill switch by hand. If that doesn’t work then wire a jumper around the switch to bypass it. Check the fuses. How good is the battery? Try a jump start from your car battery. Is the handlebar kill switch on?

Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter. Check the wiring harness. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral switch wire on center casing. If still no spark, get CDI system and coils checked at the dealers shop.

My hyosung has stop runing it has no lights nothing is workeing at all can you tell what it can be


  • Is the battery 2 or more years old? It may need to be replaced. Check the fuses.
  • Before charging, add water to fill each battery cell to nearly full. Distilled water works best.
  • Use a 1amp or a 2amp battery charger
  • Is the kill switch on? Does the side stand have a kill switch? Is it working properly? Is the gas valve on?
    If no spark, then check again but with a new plug.

  • Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter. Check the wire harness. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and wire connection on the center gearbox casing.

A problem starting up


Check the fuses. Next, check for spark. If no spark then check again but with a new plug. Is the kill switch on? Does the side stand have a kill switch? Is it working properly? Tip-over kill switch on your bike? Check the operation of the ignition switch and all kill switches with a volt ohmmeter.

Check the loom. Did a wire come unplugged? Are all wires clean and with solid connections? Any abraded or pinched wires? Is the bike in neutral and the neutral light is lit up? If no neutral light, check the neutral switch and neutral switch wire on center casing. With a little luck this will get you back on the road.

Please rate this answer. Thanks
