Ignition Switch Replacement

Post by Maineiac » Wed Jan 10, 2018 5:54 pm

I’ve found a source for a super easy, very cheap ignition switch replacement for the Ural. Ural of NE sells what I believe to be the exact same switch, just much more expensive.
Here’s Ural of NE’s switch:

Here’s the switch from Dime City for a fraction of the price:

Follow the wiring connections posted in the “how to” video on Ural of NE’s post under “Description” of the part.

I just wired this up, and it works a treat.

Good find :)
I don't find the how to for the wiring diagram. I see the video.
Thanks

Great find! I ordered a switch for my '99 project bike and two cafe racer style mirrors: one to replace the broken one on the Mobile Chernobyl's hack and one for the '99.
I appreciate you sharing this.

Just scroll thru the video until the end, and it shows which wires go to what.
