Brakes act as a kill switch.

My Motron runs fine unless you hit the brakes. Just pushing the lever down a bit you can hear it stop firing altogether. This happens on both on the front and back brake. So would it be fair to assume that the brake light wires and the kill switch wire are crossed some where?

It idles fine so I'm sure its not the carb and is electrical. I haven't touched anything to do with the wiring yet aside from replacing the condenser and by the way its wired its fair to assume that the wiring has not been altered since it left the factory so many years ago.

Has anyone had this issue? Is there a simple thing I can check with out tearing down all the wiring?

Tearing the wiring out would be a shame and a challenge because its so nicely done, very stealthily routed wiring on this bike.
