My bike came with a punched ignition and setup for a switch, the previous owner thought he had lost the key so he took the ignition off and put it in the trunk and wired a toggle to it. works flawlessly really. I cant stand not having an ignition, so i bought one from ebay, wires all look the same and plug in, but the bike wont start, fuel pump does not prime and red light blinks.

I am guessing that this switch does not have the proper resistor, so my question is what wire do i add the resistor to? all i can find online is how to remove igntion and goto a toggle when this time i want to just put a new ignition on.

Not that you are, but this post looks just like the kind bike thieves make. That's why you don't see many replies.

Well I am not a thief, I bought this bike about 2 months ago and he had it all f'd up. Ignition was drilled and on a switch(thought he had lost the key), the bike was missing all kinds of hardware, fork seals shot, rear was lowered with extensions..... It is a project for me, trying to get everything small done before i strip it for winter and get all new fairings and chain/sprocket so i can take those extensions off.

anyhow, I figured it out, it was exactly what I thought I had to do.

I have a1997 gsxr and got one of those Ebay ignition kits and the bike won't start check the coils and they tested good but no spark I just learned about the 100ohm thing for the ignition, I tested the one I have and nothing, is it possible to add this resistor and not have to get another ignition? Has anyone else had to do this, or should I get an ignition switch from a wrecked bike.

Well, you just responded to a post from 2017...
You are not likely to get many replies on this one.
The first question is why did you need to replace the ignition?
Most often this is because the bike is/was stolen and had the ignition punched out.
if you lost the key, best thing is to have a locksmith cut you another one.
If you are dead-set on replacing the ignition, go with an OEM one that would have the right internals.
basically you are asking us to help you hotwire a possibly stolen bike!
