If you cant see the pictures click on the blank "image"

Lately I've notice that I've had to dab the start button a couple of times before the engine will start, so I stripped it today and cleaned it up, SORTED =D> .

Cleaning the kill switch contacts will keep your voltage at the stick coils to 12volts maintaining a good spark. Stick coils are low resistance so any resistance across the kill switch will drop the voltage over the stick coil to nearly nowt, virtually killing your spark.

This is a C model If your doing an E/F1 the plugs and wiring are different more of, as is the F2 but less of.
The extra red wire in the pictures is a shorting link, as the standard wire which is still in place, goes out into the main loom and back into the switch :| :?: , the link mod is there to help prevent dirty loom pin wiring problems.

E and F1

F2 I use Vaseline on the contacts to help stop corrosion.

These pictures are for a zx12 but the internals are the same. I did a resistance check and found the contacts were giving 20 to 50 Ohms so they really needed cleaning as they would of caused problems.

As all zx9's are all slightly different, and I get fed up having to ask which model & number, as year may not be accurate.

i have the r/h switchgear at home with me to inspect further.i tested it in the workshop and the start button is not working,it wasn't working on the bike and after testing the relay i then decided to test the switchgear.i tested for continuity and there isn't any so i'm going to try this tonight and see if it works.

according the haynes manual though the two wires that go to the switch are black/red but this is not the case.on my switchgear one wire is black and the other is blue/white.and looking at your pic it appears to be the same as mine.strange one that.

If you have a wiring diagram you will notice that the stop switch wire comes into the switch and back out into the main loom again, only to return to the start button.
The extra wire is a shorting link from the output of the stop switch to the input of the start button. This reduces the risk of a voltage drop to the stick coils from dirty pins in the right handle bar switching loom plugs.
I only put it in because I had wire and the switching unit open and it seemed a shame not to.
