Also, don't go cutting any wires without good reason. If you suspect the keyed ignition, simply do a spark test. There are many reasons that could cause your ignition spark to fail. The switch is only one of them. While you have the spark plug out, check it for spark by holding the plug against the exhaust or a head bolt and kicking it over. Might need another person to see, unless you can turn the lights out and make it dark. You should see a nice blue spark when the bike is kicked over and the plug is held on a good ground such as the exhaust or a head bolt.
