Kill switch problems occur when installing a 12 Volt “clone” engine into a Honda CT90, S90 or any other bike that originally had DC – powered ignition.
Source of the Problem: Battery power from the kill switch in the RUN position. Your new clone engine has a CDI ignition system, incompatible with the old battery-powered ignition.
WARNING! Do not connect the stock CT90 Black/White kill switch wire to the clone CDI Black/White wire! This will destroy the CDI module.
SHOP NOTE: Even if you rewire the power input side of the kill switch to ground, then connect to the clone CDI module, the kill switch function is reversed (Run = Kill Engine)
This can be confusing and dangerous, plus ANYONE can start your bike. Don’t do it!
