    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

    Good afternoon gents. Here's my question: For a few days now I'm noticing my AT RD04 a bit unstable while cornering on tarmac, at speeds around 100 to 120 kms/h.
