Jim, your on the way to figure this out. Kiwi Roy and gstallons have a picture here somewhere of the wiring of an extra start relay. I used a 70amp relay ( overkill ),picture of that here to.

 Cheers Tom.

Tomchri, thanks for your reply. Yes there's so much information on the forum, but it is very confusing as to what advice applies to what model - I've already made a wrong judgment on that! I'm in unfamiliar territory here.

If I understand you correctly, I have to put the wiring back how it was (somehow). Then I can use the power that currently goes from relay terminal 87 down to the spade terminal of the starter motor, to operate the solenoid of a new relay. The heavy current side of the new relay would connect the battery + terminal to the spade terminal on the starter motor. Have I got that right?

Could you please explain what you mean by "just take care of your kill switch,,, and the other electric connections" ?

I appreciate your help, thank-you.

Cheers,   -Jim.

I used a 20amp fused wire to the new relay  directly from +.  The kill switch is your only weak point in the starting process with an extra relay,,, meaning keep it clean from oxidation,, Deoxit Gold makes sense. And that goes for all electric connections on the bike.

 Cheers Tom.

OK, cheers, thanks Tom. I have been lucky so far with no electrical troubles. I've had the bike since new for 98,000km (61,000miles), so can't complain! It lives in a dry garage, and I haven't ridden it in the rain very much, so I'm sure that has helped its reliability. I still love the bike (and this forum).
