There are some excellent points made here.

To be honest, all of the miles I put on bikes without safety switches, none were electric start.

this is a second option that would work however when doing it this way you are bypassing the starter relay not the safety switches

i personally would like to keep the relay in play so if there is ever a fault in the starting system the relay will be able to stop power to the starter and not damage the engine

Agreed, my method does bypass the relay in the JB. the solenoid is still in play. and remember that if either the ignition or the run/stop is off, the solenoid will not be able to get any power, regardless of what happens in the JB or other circuits.

if you have a solenoid stick shut, thats about the only way to keep the starter runnning when you dont want it, and that can happen no matter what method you use to bypass the switches.

The post IMO is fine with the disclaimer and warning....personally, Ive never even owned a bike with "safety" stuff...my 85 is my newest....

Just wondering, since its a bit radical and may hurt/confuse noobs, if it should go into the Mods/Builds section....

For safety sake, for idiots, Im gonna move it there....hope ya dont mind Trey.....

Once I finish bypassing the safety switch relay, the only thing I'll have left functional in the JB is the fan relay and the fuses. minus the Auxiliary fuse since I deleted those wires as well.

No sure yet how to bypass that relay and still leave the fan fully functional, or if it's even possible/worth it.

......I'd rather wake up in the middle of nowhere then in any city on earth.

Wire the Positive Side of the fan motor to the battery, and the negative side to the Fan Temp switch. Only problem with doing this is that you tae the chance of burning up the fan switch. Another and better way would be to get an automotive type relay and wire it up so that the fan switch triggers the relay to close, sending power from the battery to the fan motor.
