I wanted to do the same, adding a second kill switch. Problem is I am VERY new to the FJR and I am unsure on the location of the low tension side, or the factory kill switch wires. I just picked up a 2018 ES. I know this thread is OLD, but I haven't been able to find much help on google (or I am looking in the wrong places). Would anyone be able to chime in and help me out?


Thanks

Invest in a multimeter and test both sides of the switch.

Ridden wet. Put up hard.

Of course, yes. I do have a multimeter. I havent had a chance to undress the FJR yet, I was just curious if anyone knew where that harness led, or even the color of wires. Once I find the harness I will test the wires until I find the correct ones.


Thanks

I have no advice for the kill switch, but if you have never taken the tupperware off a Series III, it is a PITA. The link in my signature points to instructions and pictures that I think are better than the FSM or the Haynes book. There are a couple of small gotcha's if you are not careful.

Time spent looking at motorcycles, even Harleys, is never wasted.

I would still tend not to do it... nobody is going to steal your FJR by hotwiring it... which would entail some real damage just to get to the wires. Anybody ever heard of an FJR getting stolen?

I don’t worry about mine getting stolen. The pros roll up with a panel truck and lift them anyway. I think both risk and methodology vary greatly depending upon where you live.

I don't. They make a mess, can't stand up straight, and have cooties.

Picking up an FJR would be pretty tricky due to the weight and center of gravity. I don't bother at work or just out and about. But while touring I intend to use a simple brake disc lock. That would go a long way as you can't roll the bike away and bolt cutters won't work on it like a cable lock.
