    Default 2016 250 XC-W Kill Switch Not Working

    There's a ring connector and a female bullet connector at the respective ends of the two wires that come out of the kill switch. The ring connector is attached to a terminal. The bullet connector is not connected to anything. I am guessing that the female bullet connector should be connected to something. The problem is I can find no male connector.

    What am I missing?

    Does anyone have a photo of what that connector should connect to?

    Yeah the switch is apparently unplugged. My guess is that something is missing. Perhaps a wire was too short and turning the bars broke that wire. At any rate I have a bullet connector that is attached to nothing, but I can't see any sign of where it used to connect. Maybe the wire broke inside of one of the insulating sleeves that are under the tank so I can't see the broken end. I wish I had an intact bike to look at so I would know where that connector is supposed to connect.

    I will pull the tank and look at the ecu harness again. Thanks for that.

    Reviving an old thread here for my first post

    Just wanted to confirm an unplugged wire(s) is the most likely reason a kill switch won't work? My 2018 250exc TPI has the headlight switch block (with spring loaded kill switch) and the main kill switch still in place and neither are working (have to stall the bike).

    The wires from both of these switches enter the loom at different points it seems. However, I have not yet chased these wires past the headlight shroud. Unfortunately I've run out of time to work on the bike today, but have a few minutes to ask on here.

    Appreciate all your help.

    Yep, find this bullet connector underneath the tank disconnected somehow. Put back together and all good!
