I wanted to hook up my hot start or safety start whatever they call it when you have the clutch released it wont start, to a toggle switch since I put a bike brake clutch setup. Pretty clean too, but I don't know if it is pulling the clutch in far enough so the plates are completely off. Anyway I also wanted to hook up my ignition to a toggle switch. Also the lights.

Can anyone help me on how to do this?

for the lights if you go to the stock switch you will see an orange, red, and grey wire. To turn on the quad you need to connect orange and red. To turn on lights you need to connect all three. So run those to your switch.
Depending on what switch you buy you may need to run a relay for it, not sure how many amps runs through the stock switch but if you do have to add relays that makes it a bit more work and not as clean at all.
For the clutch switch why do you want it? Just solder the two wires together and ditch it. If for whatever reason you do want a switch for it just solder a lead to each side of the switch.

It's kind of a safety idea, it that switch isn't flipped your engine won't start. Like a second kill switch but in a different sense. I will just line up a row of switches anyway.

What about high/low beams? I still want that option. I just don't know what wire in the blob setup it is. As well as all the other switches and buttons.
