Lightbulb Removing key switch ignition

Hello Everyone!

I recently lost my key to my 09 Iron 883. Well someone took it because i left it in my ignition, and my bike is currently not able to start so I think thats why they just took the key.
ANYWAYS, i want to remove the key system entirely. Ive seen the push button aftermarket accessories such as : https://www.dkcustomproducts.com/pus...gn-rlc-led.htm

However i dont want to spend 50$ on this.
Ive looked into the sportsterpedia to see if I could understand if I could simlpy switch it for something like a simple light switch.
There are three wires, i know that much.
I am asking for suggestions on what I should do to remove this keyed ignition system and make it keyless. I dont care about it being anti-theft. I would literally wire a light switch if i was sure it would work.

Thank you! I was coming to say that I actually figured out my own question. I can buy a toggle switch, (high quality, after your recommendation) and just wire that in and put it somewhere.
When you buy a toggle switch, is it easy to know which wires go where? and how did you connect yours?
Thanks!

I actually had her in the shop and my indy did it while he was doing something else. As I recall there were only three wires involved

OK for a 2009 the 3 wires at the ignition are

Red = Battery voltage IN (from 30 amp fuse)

Red/Gray = ACC OUT
Black/Red = IGN OUT.

30 amp switch (ON/OFF type)
Red wire to one terminal (IN)
Rd/Gry and Blk/Rd to other terminal. (OUT)

really want to stealth it???
leave the ign sw in place and jump the back side so batt power is available to all three terminals and then install an avionics circuit breaker in a hidden location.
https://www.adamsaviation.com/electr...d-fuses/2tc215

they come in a wide variety of ratings. the plus side is that it also adds circuit over load protection.
