Both my R and my dad's keeping shocking us when we touch the throttle housing, bars, or brake lever. What are the common causes of this? What is the first place to look? We both have the factory kill/light switch. I have a pro design kill switch as well. Both wiring harnesses are in good shape. They haven't been all hacked up. The ground wires are grouded to the frame good. Performance is good, not cutting out or anything like that. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

do you both have the pro design kill switches? on the kill switches theres a metal end and the plastic end. if you have the kill switch set up with the hot wire going into the metal end it can shock you especially if its wet out.

It's more than static, but not a big zap or jolt. It only hurts a little. More annoying than painful. I know that if you touch the metal side of the pro design kill switch, that's a hell of a jolt. I'll do some checking around the harness and the ground wire. I might also try wiring the ground for the kill switch directly to the main ground, rather than into where the factory key switch went into the harness.
