Kill Switch stopped working. Any ideas

About 8 months ago I installed a Baja Designs kit on my 2006 XR650R. Everything worked great for 6 months and then the kill switch stopped working. They sent me out a new controller unit but it also did not work. I have checked all the obvious connections and have not been able to find the issue. Everything else works but the kill switch.

Any ideas on what else to check would be greatly appreciated!

well check where its plugged into the wires and if there good there i would trace back and follow them and check for another connection. how far did you follow those wires back????

The kill switch simply grounds the ignition. Check the ground and do as D10 says as well- def not rocket surgery.

Unhhhh..rocket surgery? That would be one tough scapel!

      I have this issue several times and cannot seem to figure it out. The four clutch spring bolts are the weakest bolts I have ever come across. I am not sure what the torque specs are, have the shop manual, have searched online and I can only guess it's around 4 ft/lbs. I have been told 8 and they seem to break every time around 7.
      What is the proper torque for these bolts?
      Should I find stronger bolts? I would still stick to the proper torque, but feel as if these things are butter.

      Prior to reassembling the case, I tested the shifting and it seems the center fork attached to the shaft seems to stick at the steepest section of the drum. I have cleaned and tested all forks and surfaces for smooth movement, tried it with silicone and oil. With very little help, it seems to shift ok, but without the help, it binds.
      Can I assume that once it is together the oil lines are attached and oil is added to the case, the binding will stop? I have tested every scenario short of assembling the entire motor.
      Should I be able to successfully test the shifting with the case apart?
