Default Ignition key switch question

https://www.jpcycles.com/product/370...gnition-switch

So I found this key switch and it says it fits 86-99 XLH 883 standard. My question is could it be used on an 2001 XLH 883 standard. I have looked in the manual and it seems that 86-99 have four fuses and 91-03 have the same fuses. 86-99 seem to have a few extra wire connected to the switch and looks like 91-03 they have removed them. It looks like it would work in place of the stock 91-03 key switch. Just wanted to know if Im thinking about this right or if Im in left field the way Im looking at it. I guess what I should be asking is if the internals of the switch are the same.

Here's the Sportsterpedia section on the Keyswitch:
http://sportsterpedia.com/doku.php/t...c03#key_switch

It mentions that in 1995 the keyswitch got a new physical design & used the 1994 new functional operation...

The keyswitch was moved to a new coil bracket and had a cylindrical housing into which the keyswitch was slid. It also had an Accessory position on the keyswitch (powers only the Accessory Fuse) which allowed the 4-way flashers to function without all the other electrical devices (like the headlight) dragging the battery down...

So - The keyswitch you linked may not fit in the stock cylindrical housing - It looks like the body is too wide at the bottom - but pictures can be deceiving - You'll need to check the size (diameter) to see if it will fit... If you are locating somewhere else, that may not be a concern...

The switching function might work since the listed 'ignition' position of the keyswitch might work to feed the Accessory circuit (instead of the ignition) and the 'ignition & lights' position might then feed the rest of the electrical devices (as does the OEM keyswitch)...

Whether it's a quality switch, capable of handling the full current load, is unknown - Some cheap switches are just that - cheaply made...

I like these NOS made in Japan switches. High quality compared to similar looking Chinese switches.

Fit fine, work great.

They are three position, but it not an issue. You don't use the middle position and it's not even noticeable when you turn the switch on or off.

Here is the first listing that I found. There are a lot of similar looking switches, but the NOS made in Japan are the good ones.

I am trying to get rid of the flat key. I would like to install a (barrel key) I think that’s the proper name for it. The reason why is because the flat key gets grooves in it and brakes off or get stuck in the switch. If I can’t find one I will just install a toggle switch for power and a hidden push button for starting.
