    There are a few different options to use.. a lot of these guys use them cheap tractor supply switches because they r just that, cheap and if it goes out again ur not out too much. I found a drag specialties switch that I prefer myself.. happy hunting

    Pay attention! WP ehc, three wires on ignition switch! That switch is from sportster most likely
    Wait a sec, does your have 3 wires too? Those tractor switches have 2
