Why, people can still turn it off with the key. I thought the whole point of it was so you wouldn't turn it off onaccident on the trackyou couldn't have it in place while racing, nor would you want it on while racing or even riding.. but it's a good idea, that i see done fairly often so you don't arrive with a dead battery when transporting the bike. Just leave enough wire length to clip it elsewhere when running.
The purpose of a kill switch that is accessible with both hands on the bars it to shut down the motor if you need to. The most common reason would be the throttle is stuck open. Yes, the key will also turn it off. But taking one hand off the bars and attempting to turn the key while you are headed off the track at full speed is going to increase the likely hood of a crash.
That's probably my favorite thing to do to my friends in the hot pit. Roll by and hit it. Or even better is when you are sitting at the grid waiting for your session to begin; as soon as the starter says "ok, go" hit their kill switch and take off. :laughOr in my case when you and your buddies take turn buzzing by and flipping your kill switch as they scoot on by.
But then yours would be the opposite of that picture, right? Look at the photo again, it's set up so that the ignition can't be turned OFF.
if you are turning it off on track on "accident" .. well.. you have a bigger skill set problem
Do you have gremlins that live in your trailer that would flip the switch?
it's not a bad idea.. especially for transport, especially if you have an ignition switch on the left side bar in place of the stock key. the clip we had (when i used em) had a red tag that said "REMOVE BEFORE FLIGHT" .. the muffler plugs often have the same tag. THis way it's way harder to not forget to remove them.I guess I'm just looking for more stuff to safety wire on my bike for ccs thanks for the reply
I file those under the category of "most useless shit ever".Do you use a muffler plug? I honestly don't know what they are supposed to do?
