The $29 keyed kill switch is just the ticket.

Thanks

Good point. I still need to get some hours on the bike before I can create a highly educated opinion as well.

Anybody have problems with your starter buttons? Sometimes when I press mine nothing happens. After I press it a few times the bike starts. I am 99% sure the problem has to do with he starter button not battery or any other electrical items.

If you had a problem with the button what did you do?

Not realy a solution, but did you flick the dimmer switch to turn on the system first? I know you can just go straight to the starter button, but maybe it's not picking up the first time you hit it.

I have the issue intermittently, mine is more a not completing the circuit unless I press hard. If it gets too annoying... I'll break apart and adjust connectors.

Probably needs a cleaning. Small bits corrode

I don't think the folding brake pedal would have saved you. I'm wearing a scratch in the same spot that I'll over fill with JB weld to give it something else to rub on.

Try some of these.
