    /6 Ignition Switch Wiring

    Hello, Hoping someone out there can help me. Trying to wire up the ignition switch in my R60/6 where the previous owner had done some very creative??? wiring. I just purchased a new ignition switch and would like to wire it right. Does anyone out there have the wire color code for the ignition switch to help me out? Ive got 5 terminals and 5 wires. Not sure which ones go where.

    Thanks

    If you go to the Links and References Forum, and then go to the subtitle, "Resources and Links." In there almost all the way down are links to many of the wiring diagrams.

    I think that Kurt the moderator may know more, as I think he is the one who put all those links together - Kudos!

    Here are a couple of places to look at the wiring for the /6. This is from the Resources and Links thread:

    You will also find a lot of the diagrams, many in pdf format for convenience in viewing, on my website.
