I used the same ignition switch that you are using, I picked mine up from Advanced Auto Parts for like $12. I was running into the same problem you are having. I then purchased a push button that bolts right up to the starter. It eliminates the need for a starter solenoid. I ended up using the ignition switch for just power to the lights. Turned the key to ACC, then hit the starter button on the starter. I don't think those ignition switches that are for cars/trucks are really the best thing for a custom wire job on a chopper. I just used it to get by for the few months I was riding my chopper before I tore it down and parted it out.

Here is a picture of the starter button that I'm talking about:http://cdn1.bigcommerce.com/server25...86.513.JPG?c=2

I hope this helps!

I've thought about going that route. Not sure yet.

Just wanted to finish this thread of by saying Thanks to you all for the help and advice. I was able to fire the bike today. Turns out I had a bad ignition switch. Bike started as soon as I bumped the key. Major relief! Anyway, thanks again guys. Much appreciated.
