The DRC kits are seperate from the bikes electrical system and as such, is a 'total loss' battery (you have to replace or recharge them).

you could not be more wrong...my stock kill switch works great as well as the baja designs one
Well maybe your kit is different than the kit I just installed on my 07 WR..... on my kit the 2 terminal socket of the factory harness where the kill switch plugs into is now occuppied by a 2 terminal plug of the baja designs multifunction switch.....it explains it in the first paragraph on page 8 of their instructions.....

My kill switch from the BD kit replaces the factory kill switch and where it's plug in. I also have the ignition/key as well.
One thing to watch out for is reinstalling your stator. I did the mod correctly and checked the resistance with my multimeter, perfect. But when I got the bike back together, it wouldn't start. After a day of checking everything on the bike and hoping it wasn't my CDI or their rectifier, I found the problem. When reinstalling the "wire holder" next to the stator I crimped one of the wires and grounded the entire system to the casing. DUH! I found it, and had to fix the wire and reinstall everything again. Fired right up. So the way to test for this is to check your resistance at the wire coming out of the casing. Anyway, just thought I'd share my experience (my dumb mistake) so that anybody who had the problem of not starting would check their stator and wires.
I did a lot of searching on TT and found many people don't like the BD kit. So far I love this kit. The only problem I had with it, I created.

I like the single bar switch. I like that now I not only have to push the Yamaha 'On' button but the lighting switch has to be in at least the 'Park' position, a little tiny bit of extra security against a "hop 'N rider".
My kit will not stay on the bike. It will be stored away and used only to do the yearly inspection and the occassional DS rides. I am going to mod the stock head light to be able to return it to use (will have the hi and low beams working) and I have already enabled the brake light function on the stock WR tail light.

I live in a small town though, I'm not worried too much.

Two guys in a pickup, lift, toss and drive away. a 10 second theft. They figure out how to start it when they get home.
LOL, that is why I have theft insurance on my WR.

I went to all the manufacturers web sites and searched on here and found that baja designs was the best kit for me. I'm pleased with my choice as I found the kit to be quality built, the only things I would change is that it should include a 2nd brake light switch for the front brake and I think the tail light should be a little larger (for saftey reasons) other than that so far so good. With their instruction manual anyone could install it with ease,very comprehensive and easy to follow with pics that are right on the money
