I would prefer this method over the rewire the kill switch because not only am i trying to prevent a battery drain after riding in the rain but also for security reasons because an alarm system isn't justified on a bike this this, at least to me but at the same time i dont want it stolen and unless someone REALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLY wants to steal it, they wont spend time hunting in every corner of the bike to try and find a possible kill switch. Granted i know its not a 100% secure method because its not that hard to take some bolt cutters to the steering lock and roll it up onto a truck bed or in a van, but its just some peace of mind i guess.
There are many Battery Cut- Off/Disconnect Switches available online.....choose one and adapt the mounting on your bike,
Yes, one option is is to cut Positive cable, but adding a short cable would be a better option.
