I was watching some of their videos last night. The last one I watched was their custom Sportster wiring harness install with the switch relocated to the primary. After that I found a different YouTube channel to watch. Nope, don't think I'm going to be doing that anytime soon. I've seen roadside repairs done by my little brother while he was tripping on acid that looked more professional than what they did. But hey, I guess it's cheap.

Probably under the tank

I bought a real high quality Japanese made switch off eBay. It was made for an earlier Dyna I believe, but wasn't hard to adapt to the stock location.

I went with a DK customs push button under the battery tray also a hidden switch on the main power wire.
