    Rs 50 project help

    New to this, bought a 99 rs50 as a project for my son, need some help if possible.
    Kill switch is playing up, canít find a new right hand assembly on eBay, any idea if you can bypass the kill switch?
    Temp guage doesnít work, how do I test it?
    Many idea where I can get replacement stickers for the fairing?
    Had bikes all my life but never tried anything like this before, any help, advice etc welcomed.
    Thanks.

    As Ian said. Just pull the connector from the loom. The kill switch works by earthing the CDI box. If you really want to replace it. Get one from an RS125.

    To test the temperature gauge. Pull the connector from the sender and touch it against the engine. If the needle goes to full scale deflection, then it's the sender that's at fault.

    Original decal sets are very hard to come by. I bought a number of them a couple of years ago, when dealers were clearing out their stockrooms (The 10 year 100% spares availability was up). Be warned though. Even though the decals I bought were discounted. They still weren't cheap!

    Thanks for that. I pulled the wire off the before I posted this (red and white) it disables it but did the same to the ignition so wouldn’t turn off.
    So a 125 same year throttle will work? I’ve found one of those on eBay. Looked similar but I was in sure. Thanks

    My own RS50 was 1999. It wasn't fitted with a kill switch. I bought one from a RS125. It fitted a treat. Word of warning though. The other internals will need to be swopped over. Otherwise the lights won't work.
