I am currently trying to wire up my gunner kill switch up.. but i can not figure out which wires to use. The kill switch has 3 wires, a ground and 2 others. Does anyone have a diagram or know what 2 wires to cut into to make it work??

Yeah, he needed a "dead-man switch", in order to run some races, up in his neck of the woods.

I dont think the reg switches work... get one of a skidoo and see how they are wired in. might be able to plug it right in to the harness ... if nothing else you can PM raidermike and ask him

I searched RaiderMike67's posts and he never did say how he finally ended up wiring one in. So like OSOKILLsuggests maybe a PM to him will help. Be sure to let us know when you do get it figured out.

Were you able to get the Gunnar switch to work? If so do you remember what color wire you spliced into?

Thanks

My dealer took a kill switch off of a ski doo, they tried three other switches none of which would work. They called BRP "tech support" and were basically told they were SOL, the dealer mechanic suggested the ski doo switch and it worked.

The real bitch? They never even checked to see if it would work at the races, I could of just faked it and put in just a tether. LOL

Kill Switch Wiring

Got it! Thanks to all for their tech support, that is why I like this Forum! The Gunnar "normally closed" swith does not work. I bought a Pingle (of course it was double the price) and connected to the Brown wire between the stock run/stop switch and the CDI and spliced it in, and Bam! it worked like a charm! I recommend to anyone that needs a teather kill switch for racing to purchase the Pingle "normally closed" switch, it was simple install once I had the correct brand switch!

Thanks again to all who offered advice!
Ride on CAN-AM!
