Ignition switch relocation?

Hello All,
I've been running through the idea of relocating my ignition switch to the side of my bike. The only real reason would be for some style points. Along with the ignition (cylinder and key) I would like to relocate the start button to "clean up" the handle bars.

Any ideas or precautionary tips?

they make a lot of gadgets to do this with, i have also seen people add the ignition switch and start button to the battery box, and other wierd places... and looking at your talents...you should be able to do this no problemo
how well do you understand the igintion switch wireing circuit? if you have a very food understanding of it, you can get a cheap chrome key ignition switch with a three wire hook up that would work, and it can be mounted where ever your imagination takes you

Thanks slim, My knowledge of our electrical system is limited, but that doesn't mean I can't learn it. When I removed the ignition switch I was a little shocked at how much crap was ran to it.
