Yup, that is what a note I wrote some time back on the wiring diagram in my Clymers manual says too.

On the wiring diagram those are identified specifically as the "Side stand switch" and the "Engine stop switch."

The starter Lockout switch contacts G and Y/G when the clutch is released; B/Y and Y/G when pulled in.

ok here's the deal, I'm rewiring my bike, I tossed the JB, the Reserve Lighting Unit, the stock ignition switch, along with all the safety switches (for the time being). Here is my wiring diagram how I have it wired right now.



the problem is I am not getting spark. The Coils and the pickup coils test good, but I think that I have a problem with the IC Ignitor Box. I am getting ground feed back through the red wire that runs to both coils. Also, for the pickup coils, is the top coil front cylinder or rear cylinder?

slim red & black is #1 and red & green is #2. The switch wire should not float it is either high (+12v) or low (goes to ground) I don't remember which! maybe somebody else might known.
