After months of trying to fix my bike and reading about ignition Switch woes I thought why not. As I pulled connector apart I spotted a green corroded wire. I went ahead and checked switch.one of the springs was poor but I think the problem was the wiring block. All the rest of wiring has looked good on my search to find this fault but it runs right now after months of misery.

Wiring Diagram + annotations * still undergoing revisions, but still more useful than the generic one. Let me know if you find mistakes or think something additional should be added

Wow, that's a corroded lead if ever there was one!

Thanks for the IC pics. Definitely a lot going on in there.
