No matter what dirt bike you are riding you will want to install the switch via the ignition coil. Obviously based on the dirt bike you will need to find a convenient place for the key switch but make sure you run it through the ignition coil. Especially if you have both a electric and kick start on your dirt bike.

How do you install ignition swith ford f350?

If you have the key for the switch your are in luck. Insert the key, do not turn it. On the face of the switch there should be a hole about 1/16" in dia. Use a stiff piece of wire or anything that will fit and not break off. As you push on the wire turn the key slightly and pull on it. The tumbler mechanisim should pull out. Reverse the process to install a new tumbler. If you do not have a key the process is very involved. I advise you to take it to a certified shop.

How do you start a 1971 Honda dirt bike?

I actually own a 1971 Honda dirt bike. If it is in good condition, then it should start easily. The bike is a kick start. By the right side foot peg, there is a small black lever that flips down. Flip it down and kick it down to start the bike. Make sure the key is turned to on. Also giving a little gas while kick starting it may help if it is not starting right away.

Which is the best way to turn off a motorcycle by using the kill switch or by turning the key to the off position?

As far as I know, there is no noteworthy difference in the way most bikes stop either by using the kill switch or the key. The engine's ignition gets cut either way and as far as the engine is concerned that's the end of it. On practical grounds, however, there is something to be said for using the key: it's a good habit to acquire, for using the kill switch might lead to forgetting the key in/on, straight to a lost/stolen key/bike or possibly a flattened battery. Also, once used, one tends to forget the kill switch on "off", prompting a few moments of confusion when the bike is to be started again...
