My ignition switch is all screwed up on my 2014 NC700X. So my brother in law and I are going to rewire the ignition switch into a toggle switch. Does anyone know how many amps the ignition switch pulls, so I can get a Big enough toggle switch. Please and thank you.

I think that 20-30A / 12VDC switch should be enough.

I have an irresponsible suggestion: wire a straight bypass and use the kill switch instead. It seems to be reliable. I use it many times each ride at long stops, and when ending my ride. Of course, theft could be more likely than a hidden toggle, but few would be likely to try to start a motorcycle in the absence of a key or spotting the hidden toggle. I think most thefts involve throwing a motorcycle into a truck or van without any attempt at riding.

Never mind, irresponsible and stupid. Lights would stay on.
