Hey Red, you should start a shiz spewing thread so we can get this one back on topic. If it goes off topic to long it might just get deleted!
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

You sure the key isn't bypassed? It's easy to cross the wires from the magneto and coil.
I'm pretty sure I'd know if I were being manipulated by some overwhelming, mesmerizing, quasi-divine entity anointed by its own cult of personality. Nobody could be that stupid. So who's ready for the Super Bowl?

Ehh I didn't have the barrel plugged in and it still had spark. The harness looks all stock. Well apart from my 12v adaptation.

I'm not 100 percent sure but I think mine is the same.  Is it possible the key is lights only?  That seems pointless I know and highly unlikely.  Just wondering out loud.

I've bought a few scramblers that had just a killswitch, to eliminate battery. If your bike has no killswitch I would guess it's just a crossed wire. The wire from the mag could to straight to the coil or to the key. Cross em and you'll know when you try to kill it.

Just trace your wires :P

I put up a diagram a few pages back. It has a kill switch that ground the coil as well.

Damn I need some proper bars for this thing. I was going to use a set of aluminium low rise but I don't think the kill switch will work if I go that route.

Kill switch grounds to the bars. I suppose I could just run a ground wire...
