Removing handlebar switch on Vortex Ignition

Hi guys, I have a Vortex Ignition on my bike and the switch seems to be broken so I want to remove it but the problem is that when you simply unplug the switch, the ignition stays on map 1 all the time. I know that there is a 30$ switch eliminator for sale that enables you to remove the switch and being able to adjust the maps on the box but I was thinking of doing my own one with the plug of my handlebar switch.

The handlebar plug have 2 wires coming from it like shown:


The switch eliminator looks basicaly the same as the one of the handlebar switch but the wires are coming out of one side and entering the other side:


If I cut my switch wires at around 2 inches from the plug and then twist them together at the end, do you think that it will work?

I would'nt see why because it would do the same as if they were coming out of one side and entering the other side of the plug like on the switch eliminator.


Anyone could help me?

I don't know for sure.

But it seems to me when the switch is closed you get one ignition map and when the switch is open you would get another ignition map.

Can you check the switch with a multi meter to find out if it is actually working?

If your bike works in one switch position but not the other,you will either need to just remove the switch or make the little loopback switch replacement.

Thanks, unfortunetly, I don't have a multi meter and don't know how to use one. I could go and buy one, but I would still have no idea how to use one.

When you say if the bike works in one switch position but not the other, do you mean run in one position and doesn't run in the other?

The bike always runs in every switch position.

Anyone else can help me?

Common guys, there must be someone on TT who knows a little bit about electricity...
