Not really sure yet...don't use a key switch have a two post heavy duty toggle switch "on/off" and got fire to the points/headlight in the on and off. Took all the olD BS wiring off that was on the bike got a new junction strip and all new wire.

At first it had a dead short caused it had a lil' spark when touching the neg. post...found out I had it crossed on which was the on and off on the switch so I changed that and fixed the dead short but still fire going to the points/light wither the switch is on or off.

Ok here's what I don't have on the bike.....no dash/key switch/horn/speedo/signal lights...forgetting something else but hope ya got the ideal.

It sounds like your coil has power all the time??? Since you're running a points ignition and a couple of lights all through a single on/off switch your wiring should be super simple. That being said, I always recommend putting your ignition on it's own circuit.

Sorry been gone all day think like the post above my coil is hot all the time what I have is 3 wires that are going to the switch on post and they are one from the coil one from the points and one from the headlight "haven't ran the brake light yet"
Then I have one wire from the regulator and the other wire from the coil connected straight to the + on the Battery and one wire w/30amp fuse ran to the switch off post. I taped and marked the old wiring as I took it off and it worked ok I'd rode it for 5 yrs. like that and I tried to follow the old one but I've gotten off track I guess,I'd used a 30amp toggle before but got a heavy duty 50amp this time and I tested the new toggle and it's showing good with my test light also so I can touch the switch off post with the test light with the neg. battery cable off and it lights up....now that one got me.

The wire from the points goes to one end of the coil, not to the switch, the power wire from the switch goes to the other end of the coil.

i always use 2 hi/lo relays for my "harness". One to power on or off, and the other for hi/lo beam. That's it. Super simple and easy to diagnose. I think I have Pushrod for that advice about 15 years ago?...

Nope, leave it up in case someone else has the same issue.
