I just put a YZ number plate on my 05' WR450 and now I have my ignition switch hanging over the handle bars. I have done a search and found talk about getting rid of it but nothing from anyone who has actually done it. Anyone know what will happen if I take it out and how to do it? I can pull the wire from the harness no problem and I assume I would just need to splice two wires together to bypass the switch. Or maybe there's a better way to do it? Also, if the ignition is always on as it would be in this case is there too much draw from the battery? Thanks.

Here's how I did mine.

I used the start/run/stop switch from a TTR-250 and moved the on indicator light to a bracket I fabbed for my TrailTech computer that slides under the handlebar clamp.

The wiring is pretty easy if you can read a wiring diagram.

Looks pretty trick. I can't read a wiring diagram but I'll do it anyway. I just bought a TrailTech today as well so I think I'll try to do something identical to what you did unless someone can tell me how to do away with it all together. Thanks.

Check out my mount in my Garage. A piece of aluminum will work also. I have never hit it and it's an easy install.

Thankfully, it was a work-related injury. :p

Now that the weather is changing I need a leg warmer or I get chills. I'm doing OK, though. The fractured calcaneus on the other leg is worse.

Magazine-guy freebie. I like them, but they are a bit on the heavy side. They do keep the vibes to a minimum with the isolators, though, and I like the flip-around adjustment. I have another set but I have no idea what they fit. :lol:

If you don't mind me asking, "work-related" as in bailing out mid-air during a bike test?

I hope the recovery goes well. Good Luck.

Bailing out mid-air? Damn, I wish I would have thought of that! :ride:

I hope the recovery goes well. Good Luck.

Thanks! :applause:
