Custom wiring for ignition HELP!

2726 Views 11 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  DesmoDog
I have re-done all the wiring on my 1980 Kawasaki KZ550. Here is my plan, I got rid of the key switch and all that mess and just simply have a hidden power switch. What I would like to do next is have the horn trigger be my ignition button. A) is this possible? Are the wires beefy enough? and B) how would I run the 2 wires from the horn switch to get it to fire?

I am kind of a newbie with electrical so sorry if this is a dumb question.

I took the horn off so there is no more horn haha. My new controls have headlight, blinkers, horn and pass. The horn and pass are not being used so I was hoping that one of those could be used as my ignition button...
Put your horn back on.

Use the horn button for the horn.

Use the pass button for the starter.


P.S. you'll really want a horn
I just shake my head at this kind of thing... While I'm trying to find the loudest horn to fit in the smallest space that doesn't make a dead short when I fire it, this guy tosses his away like "fuckit". Maybe he's planning on loud pipes to save his life.
