MC Garage Video: The Motorcycle Kill-Switch Mystery

To kill switch or not to kill switch—that is the question.

What’s the right way to shut off your bike—with the key, or with the kill switch first? And is there any harm in doing it one way or the other? While you may think this is a silly question (we certainly did at first), it turns out there are loads of people concerned about this very topic. So whether you’ve never considered the subject or you think about it every time you shut off your bike, we’ll get to the bottom of things in this video from the MC Garage.
