tether kill switch on a raptor 125

Has anyone put a tether on a raptor 125. I was wondering if it was like the yfz 450 if I remember right they hooked up different. But I dont really remeber how it hooked up. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I just unpluged the wire on coil and stuck the kill switch wire in the little holr on the tap on coil and pluged wire backup. Works great.

Hey guys. Resurrecting an old thread. Can you point me to a resource to buy the right kill switch for the raptor 125. I bought a 2011 for my son and want to get a switch installed. Thanks.

Thanks. There is some conversation online about a normally open or closed tether and compatibility with the bike. Do you know how to tell the difference on the 125? I wamt to make sure I am installing the correct part.

You want a normally closed switch. Installed in line with your key switch wires. Do not connect to your coil, it can damage your ECU. Not all ebay switches are labeled open or closed, so be sure you get normally closed. When the tether is pulled it opens the circuit as if the key is turned off.
