I order another one for your stock kill switch too. It's only a matter of time before that one falls apart too.

I just ordered a ttr switch that radrick has been using It looks like it will be alot nicer since it replaces the on/off button and the kill switch

Cant you just use the kickstarter?
Yes I can....but the idea behind an magic button bike is to have the magic button working!!

I use the KILL button....when I'm starting my WR. I'll hold it down for 2-3 cycles if she's being difficult(like at high altitudes or such), when I release it she fires immediately. I use when she's flooded too...it works great!
If you unplug the factory kill button it will plug right in where the factory start button goes. The wires are the same length and it works just fine. You still have the on/off button for killing the engine. I NEVER use the kill button, always the on/off button anyway.

I am in need of a quick fix for a starter button. The stock unit blew apart on me the other day and i can not seem to find a part from my local dealers. My question is this: can I use a kill switch as a starter button?? Being that both units should run on a 2 wire set up I think it should work but wanted to get some input from the crew here before I started the work. What do you think, can I use a kill switch as a Start button??
Thanks in advance,
Both, the kill, and the start button are not top quality stuff. The day after I rode my 05 WR450 in the rain it would not start, either kicking or the starter would not get it started it took 3 hours of tearing my bike apart to find the guts of the kill switch had disintergrated and was in stuck in the kill position. I harvested the one from my 2000 wr400 that did the trick.

$20 for a kill switch ?
I ordered a $9 YZ switch for my gasgas from here:
Or you can get the Moose version for $12 from the same place...
Thanks for the info. Always good to have competitive pricing.
The reason I posted the link was for the picture. I get pretty sweet deals on parts from the local Yamaha dealer. The parts guy is one of my racing buddies.

I've done basically the same thing with the kill switch, except I've used a cheap YZ kill switch. When the kill switch goes to hell, I just buy another one, cut off the end, attach a couple of quick-disconnects and plug it in.
I think the starter switch was like 30 bucks and even though it's a Honda part, it's worth having.
