Ignition switch

I just replaced mine realizing it was 90 percent of my problem. Bike would crank fine but no power to the coils. Would run the battery down trying. Learned to wiggle the key after a couple times. But eventually the bike would cut out and run while riding.

Hey, mcinturff, what mods (if any) did you already have done other than the R/R? Had you done the two wire or blue wire mods before this?

No other mods. The blue wire and two wire mod are done during this procedure, just in a different way.

I'm in the stator replacement from hell. Every turn is ten more problems. Oil leak, burned 2 stators in a week, coolant leak, clutch issues. Balencer are shot, alternator rotor in groved from the stators. Tux mod failed. I'll on the edge of just buying a bike

Don't worry!!, It's just a bump in the road.

Great thread, made my rewiring project a weekend deal instead of a week or two slog through the harness when my junction box went pop and let the smoke out. I did take the time and clean up the whole battery area as well, relocating the starter solenoid and rectifier while I was at it.
