I've done it with a couple of WRs using an ignition switch from Baja Designs. I've had a cheap universal switch from ebay fall apart. You want to wire a switch in parallel with the kill switch. In the closed position the ignition is killed, open it runs.

Would I just need a 2 wire one? Sense the secondary kill switch only had two wires running to it?
Any 2 wire universal keyed switch will work as long as it is closed in the off position. The BD switch has 4 wires to 2 switches in it. One pair is open in the off position and one pair is closed. I used one pair for the ignition and one for the lighting. I converted my bike to an all DC system.

So my question is, off of my wiring harness where the kill switch wires are I have FOUR wires, two that ran to the kill switch, and two that ran to the hidden toggle switch. So I would like to keep a kill switch on my bars and have the key switch, do I wire the switch to the two wires the toggle switch had and just leave my bar kill switch?
If that doesn't make sense tell me haha. And does it matter where each wire of each pair goes to as long as it's wired to the same device, same two to kill switch and same two to key switch?

Alright so I have the factory kill switch wired back up, just the two wires. The baja designs key switch I have has a plug on it, coming from the switch is 4 wires (red, black, green, black with white stripe) then it plugs into two wires, blue and black. How would I wire that up to work as a kill switch in a way, where when its on the bike runs and when its off you cant start it.
The black wire and black with white stripe are factory kill switch wires which I now have wired to my handlebar kill switch and the other plug pictured is the headlight plug, I know some have ran the key switch with that. Whats best to do?

Either way (cheap ebay or Baja) this should be a really simple job in that a kill switch is usually just one wire connected to ground to kill bike
If the key switch clamps to something makes the ground, its poss just 1 wire connected to the switch
That about all you current kill switch should do
If not, your new key switch will need the same 'pin out' as your toggle switch now has
ie, it needs to make the same connections (or opens) when the key is actuated
You have to understand how your current kill switch works first in order to replicate its action
