About to put kill switch on the Z today. I know the short wire is the ground. I was going to attach the long wire on kill switch to the black wire on the ignition coil. If this is right, let me know. Just want to make sure before I do attach it.

not the wire from the keyhole to the start botton, is it??? better not be that one otherwise you are going to be blowing fuses....

Need to pick the other wire on the otherside of the start botton, if that is the long wire you are looking at, then its likely to be the right one....

I'm going to attach the long wire from the kill switch to the black wire on the ignition coil. The ignition coil is located on the right side of the Z, near the bottom right hand corner of the gas tank. Anyone else attach the long wire from kill switch to the black wire on the ignition coil.

Yes the coil wire with the spade connector on it is the one you want, we just had a lengthy discussion on this and have come to the same answer. That is the wire I have mine on and it works fine.

What Dad said. No need to pull the tank or plastic. You can reach it, but it's a little tight.

The wire is on the right side (when sitting on the quad).

Pro Design kill switch on a KFX400 or Z400 will hook up as follows: It is not necessary to remove any plastic or do any major wire moving. Squatting on the right side of the bike (brake pedal side) look just behind the radiator. There you will see the coil. It's a small black cylinder. The coil is connected by 2 (two) wires. One is black and is the "pulse wire" and the other wire is black and white. The black wire connecting to the coil will be the closest to you if you are squatting on the right side of the bike and looking toward the bike. The black wire is connected to the coil with a spade connector which pulls from the coil very easily. Use a needle nose pliers to get to it. You have to unhook it so you can work with it. To get to it you have to push gently away some other wires, etc. in the general vicinity. Now, using a small saddle type wire connector Click here -> http://auffarth.com/connector.jpg you take the long wire from the Pro Design Kill Switch and using the saddle type wire connector or similar connector, connect the Pro Design "long wire" to the black pulse wire. Now, the other wire coming from your Pro Design Kill switch (the short one) goes to any available frame bolt on the bike and is your ground wire. Remember to hook the black wire with the spade connector back up to the coil after you have connected/spliced in the long Pro Design wire. That's it to the install on the KFX400 or Z400.
