    My duughter asked me a question last night and I didn't have an answer for her. She asked me what the purpose of the run stop switch was since you can just turn the bike off with the ignition switch. I told her I would have to find out for her.
    Thanks in advance. You guys are always a big help

    It takes the load off the ignition switch so there is less arcing to the contact points. also for a quick kill if needed while riding.

    Thanks Hobbit.
    For an older guy I'm still learning a lot. I guess I'm not to old to learn new things. :D
