    Have read alot of questions and answers about wiring the kill switch, and still not 100% clear. Could one wire the white wire and ground wire through the switch, which when pressed would ground the circuit causing the engine to die. Or is it harmful to do it this way?
    Thanks Stephen

    That is the way I do it. I use a standard toggle switch from Radio Shack. I ran a ground wire back to an existing allen screw and connected the other end to the kill wire on the GEBE kit. Works perfect. Mounted it on a piece of angle aluminum under the main horizontal tube and just reach down when I want to kill it while still rolling. That way I can roll up to the store silent. When I get back to the house I will post some pics. It will be a few days.

    I just realized this is a frame mount question.

    You can get a toggle kill switch that mounts to the handle bar and is grounded at that point through the mount. Only one wire runs to the ignition coil.
