Ignition options

I'm not going to get into alot detail as to why I need to change the ignition but simple it doesn't fit in the current locations with some upgrades I did. What options do I have to change the ignition to something smaller (without fork lock) that will work will all those wires that come out of the bottom of the ignition. What is each one of those wires do

Wiring Diagram (KLE650B Models)

The wiring for our model differ from US models, so not much of help here, but refer to your wiring diagram and should not be a big hassle. Basically you can have it relocated anywhere you want with a simple ignition switch from a like model-Kawasaki Vulcan/Virago.

Hope it helps.

The harness that attaches the ignition switch to the main harness terminates just in front of the airbox and is long enough to relocate within 1 to 1.5' of the standard mounted position(if) your truly not worried about the fork lock? Those (wires) and how they are connected in the various positions of key turn of the switch are noted in the harness schematics of your particular model year and country if you can decipher them. If your only needing on/off you may compare with other models to condense space and weight. You'd basically just need to power circuits for ignition, head/tail,brake/signals? and horn? I'm assuming your building on the street fighter motif?
