How to disconnect the RH Kill switch on KTM's

Hey guys,
Wondering if someone can help me with this one...
From time-to-time I hit the big red button on the right (above the start switch) at just the WRONG moment. So I want to disconnect it and use the little red button on the LH side. Obviously still want the starter button to work. Which wires do I disconnect?

Coming from the kill switch there are 2x blue wires which go in to the same plug. There's 1x Yellow/Black which goes in to it's own plug. And finally the Black wire that goes in to the 4 pin socket.
If you remove the Yellow/Black - makes no difference.
If you remove the pair of Blue - Bike won't start
If you remove the Black - Bike won't start

I assume you need to short some of the wires... but which ones?

Black with the yellow trace is the kill switch.

If you open the kill switch up and gently prise the side plate off you will see 2 springs.
Remove the little internal spring.

This stops the switch from clicking into position.
Still works as a kill/starter switch too

+1 Thats what I allways do and I've done it for other people too. There is a little plastic bit in there the holds it in, just throw that away.
I thought the yellow and black wire was the kill switch too.

Good tip, I never thought of doing that! It shits me to tears how it stays in.

The single yellow/black wire on it's own is your kill swith.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

Not sure I want to use it as a kill switch at all so would prefer to disconnect it entirely. Problem is, when I disconnect the yellow/black - it has no effect... that is, if you press it in, then the start switch is also dead.

There must be a way to have the start switch working as normal but disable the kill switch?

The aftermarket switches are ok, but the genuine ones are top quality.....just gotta get rid of the locking function.

Whatever Dalby Moto always do to my new Katos works. RHS Kill switch is disabled when I buy them.
