Engine start button.

So what I’m thinking about is to install a engine start button to start sled. I would turn key on in the morning and than use start button the rest of the day. I would just tap in to wires on key switch so should something happen to start button I still have key as back up to start sled. I pulled up drawing for key switch and it looks like terminal A and D would be the 2 wires that I need to tap in to. Going to take a closer look at it on the weekend. What do you guys think ?

Interesting idea. I do like the start button feature on the new sleds. Also like the location of the button. I basically only use the key as a slight security measure.

I'm not a big fan of running extra wires tapped into the harness. One more thing that can fail. Trying to figure out a way to keep the wiring simple and easy to use. The button on the new machines has fail safe built into the function. Basically, you can't use it unless the machine is ready to start. That functionality would be difficult to build in to a retrofit.
I'm not trying to discourage you with the button. Just adding things to consider.

We stopped to eat and noticed other riders coming in with snow jammed in their helmets, jackets and gloves. They had snow everywhere. We looked out the door and couldn't see across the street. Six inches of snow fell while we ate a few burgers. That was the start of a great ride.

Just be careful not to put it someplace you could bump when the motor s running. You could engage the starter when the motor is already running, possibly at high RPM.

I was thinking the same thing. I seen this start button that mounts on brake handle. You take off clamp on brake and replace it with button. No drilling and keeps thing nice and clean looking
