Lanyard kill switch

I don't quite like the term 'dead man switch"

Anyway, I'd need one for the land speed events if I run at Maxton.
Has anyone installed it? How to make it easily removable?
I really don't want it on the bike when not running an event.
Which wires are best to use? The ones to the stock kill switch or other?

I suppose I could splice in the lines with a crimp style blade plug and simply
remove the kill switch and plug the original wire back together.
Ideas greatly appreciated.

I wired one of these into a friend's M900 for the same purpose. He opted to have me hard-wire it in (solder), as he didn't want to risk having quick-disconnects coming apart at speed...

Were I to use a connector of some kind, I would use one that has a lock, or latch, of some sort on it to reduce the risk of having a problem.

I tapped into the kill switch, near the steering stem, and used epoxy heat-shrink over the connection. It is a really well made piece of equipment, and honestly doesn't look bad leaving it in place. He simply removes the lanyard leaving the kill-plug in place for the street.

That's the one, and now that you cause me to take a second look,
it wouldn't look to bad left on the bike without the lanyard.
I just hope no one comes by and pulls the plug for laughs and I'm stranded.

Thanks again for the info on the wire in.
