Default 1998 1200S hooking up tether kill

I have a tether kill that is a closed system one.It has a red and a green wire.I am wanting to wire it into the stock kill switch.It has a grey wire that goes to the ignition fuse and another wire that goes to the coil.
How would I make this tether work?

i assume it is a NO sw that is held closed by a pin. that said, you could connect it to kill power in either position, all that matters is that when the pin is pulled, the power is chopped. now if the sw has a high enough rating, you could also kill all power from the battery which on a track can have some def safety advantages.

All I can say is you need a NORMALLY CLOSED switch and cut the gray wire and splice it in.
