    Hello Gents, If I wanted to use an earth fed switch (momentary push type) to kill the ignition, which wire do I need to feed the earth to? The standard Domi kill switch just cuts the power to the CDI, but I am trying to simplify the wiring and switches. Many thanks Jim

    Looks like you'll need to stick to major trunk routes if you want to be able to blat along at a heady 60mph in future :x Other A roads are probably going to be reduced to 50mph or 40mph limits... So that's pretty much guaranteed to be a 40 limit on any road you might think is fun to ride...
