I want to put in a key switch to deter thiefs when I park at a store or restaurant. Picked one up. The contacts are made when the switch is turned off. Can I parallel this with my kill switch without hurting the bike electronics?

[COLOR="Green"]On my 04 the dual sport kit I bought, has a key
It plugged into the push button on off switch
Im an electrical failure, but I would think if you were to wire a key switch you would do it in place of that button

Thanks for the posts! Got it done. For future reference, get a key switch with closed contacts in the off position and parallel it with the kill switch. Works fine.
