Killswitch question....

4 posts in this topic

Im curious if anyone has tryed running a killswitch with a teather cord, the kind that alot of the quad guys are required to have for most racing events? the reason im wanting to know is i ride alot of trails with sand/water and cross alot of creeks and shallow water holes.. and in the event of a "lay down" i dont want my bike to suck a bunch of water through the pipe and spill into the exhaust valves or come through airbox into the carb... i would much rather it stopped running if i crashed anyways incase i cant get to it to shut it off befor any serious damage could happen.. any info would help thanks.. -Wayne-

If you dropped a hot 4 stroke in the water, running or not, bad things will happen. I never thought much about using an ATV kill cord, because it could get snagged on tree limbs and things like that.

All of the hillclimbers have them, its manditory for most events. Should be a pretty easy setup. I know some of my buddies who are pro hillclimbers complain of occasionally catching the teather on something and killing their ride prematurely. :thumbsup::thumbsup:
