Thumbs up

Hey all. Two different sleds same objective: Install hidden kill switches for security. A 1996 ZRT 600 and a 2002 ZR 800. Are these sleds wired as normally open or normally closed circuits or one of each? I know that at some point in time Cat went from one way to the other and just need to know how to wire each one of them. Any advice or help would be great. We have already found a nice hidding spot now they need wired in. Should I tie into the ignition switch or someplace else also?

Thanks,
Z-Rider

Why not just tie it into one of the wires on your existing kill switch? To break the circuit.

If you can't hide from the law who can you hide from?

as far as wiring, it doesnt matter if they are normally open or closed,,,, simply put your switch in and it will work one way and not the other,,, switch may say off, but its actually on. I would hang right there with either the ignition, kill switch, or even the tether area.
You could get really creative and tie into your bright dim switch and make it serve 2 functions,,,, as the sled is off, your brights have to be on to start the sled. You would have to put in a relay so that it bypass's that circuit when the sled is running though, because if you didnt, everytime you turned your brights on, the sled would die LOL..... lots of options out there.
Good luck

I wouldn't bother....

With the NO ignition all you have to do is cut the ground wire and someone can drive off with it....

Bunch of trouble and still not any more protected than before...

I would just unplug a coil wire and leave the boots together so it looks plugged in. I used this on a buddies sled all the time!!!

I hate to say it. It may sound bad, but I think this is why I pay so friggin much for my insurance. I take the key out and call it good. Plus I'm usually parked in between a bunch of sleds. If it's stolen, I'll just go buy another.

RIDE IT LIKE YOU STOLE IT!

Yep, if someone wants it bad enough they are going to strap it to there back and carry it away.

On some trips I will pull the coil wires and remove the belt, that is about all you can do....

Stops the joy riders when your in having a bite.

There is nothing like having a bite,then find a sled in your group gone.

good thing to do IMO.

If you can't hide from the law who can you hide from?
