Anybody know what wires to splice into to hook up a dead man switch?

My switch (pro-design) is normally closed meaning no electrical connection and when the cord is yanked off it complets the circuit.

I am competiting in some grass drags and it is a requirement to have one.

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

Easiest way is the Baldwin Motorsports kit. Plugs into the stock plug.

I like it because it's easy and leaves no permanent scars.

I agree using the Baldwin Kit. It works with all kill switches and all you have to do is plug it in and ground a wire.

Ground one side and run the other to the white wire at the bottom of the CDI. But the adapters are a better way to go.
