marine grade switches resist vibration... they are built to last

I use Honda handlebar switches that connect the two coil leads together to kill the motor. You don't have to ground them and it doesn't seem to hurt anything. Honda switches never fail and everybody has boxes of them. I also jam a piece of heater hose between the coils so the brackets don't crack from vibration.

I think Evile is right - the marine switch is still on the bike from our last efforts. We had both cylinders firing but couldn't get the timing set. Is there a continuity test to be sure the electronics weren't totally fried when we had it running on 1 cylinder with the wrong switch?

I have a sheet somewhere that tells how to check them. I think you may be able to find it on the Penton site.
