I have a 1986 Trx350. it recently lost all power to the bars. After some digging I figured out the key switch was bad and only working sometimes. I really need the wheeler this weekend so is there anyway to hot wire it for now? The wires off the switch are as follows (not in any order) red, red/black, pink, black, green, black/white. Can I rig a toggle switch in there somewhere just for the weekend? I saw a picture of the black and green on one side of a toggle with the red on the other. when I connect black to the red or red/black the oil temp light come on, then goes out but no neutral light and no cranking. if I touch the green to the red or red/black it blows the fuses. If I can rig this thing up with a toggle switch what wires should be on either end of the switch? Thanks. Picture attached is what I found randomly in google images.

I had the same issue. My switch went bad and wasn't able to get one before the ride. A switch in between the red wire was what I did. Down where the switch wires hook to the chassis wiring. But looks like you unhooked from switch itself. I still have my switch on mine and it's stuck on. The red kills all power. Not sure if that helps or not.

personally..i won't give out this info, as this is not something we tend to tell folks, as this leads us to think the atv is stolen ?, ( not saying it is ! ) but we just don't think its a good idea to tell folks how to do this. buy a ignition switch, fix it right, be done with it, stop trying to save a buck !..lol.
