I am not use to the set up of Polaris. My other bike had it up on top with out a key to mess with. Only time you use a key is to lock the ignition. Most of the other bikes I have owned the key was between the bars and tank. I do not reaching down to shut it off. I am in the process of doing it different also..

heat sheild?

Spoons-asm is there a cover over the wiring on the relocated ignition switch. It would seem the rear cylinder exhaust pipe would over heat or slowly cook the wiring and the ignition switch without some-type of heat shield to protect them.
