Custom wiring for ignition HELP!

2727 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.

But then your horn will go off while you're cranking.. :p
Yeah, it's just a momentary switch... that's all you need to give 12V to the relay.
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

And a heavy kicking boot.
