    I just checked the old tube fuse that was originally in it along with the spare that was next to it and they are both 15Amp!

    Also, just to make sure, I'm double checking the polarity of the solenoid/starter relay.. I can't find a reference to this in my documents

    Red is on the bottom - battery, black on top - to the engine.

    It doesn't matter if the red is on bottom and black on top or vice versa. A relay is basically a switch, when feed power from the small wires going into it connects the big black wire and red wire together. This lets power flow from the red through the black to your starter. So it doesn't matter the orientation of those two wires.

    The prob was a 10a fuse it seems, I put the 15a in and that was it.

    However the switch works great!!! Thanks for the direction on this!!

    Check it out...

    Love the switch, very "Top Gun".
    Looks like you are about to release some Tomahawks.

    I'll be mounting a switch panel / dash when i get the dual headlight bracket assembled. Switches will go up top near handlebars.


    Much more needs to be done..

    Cool switch. Now you need the dual tool tubes in the front to go with the missile launcher switch.
