Happy thanksgiving to all.

My ignition switch is not longer working, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
After inspection it looks like someone open it and is really in bad shape.
It's time to get a new switch.
Originals are super expensive or not longer available. Any suggestions?

Also should I get the 5 or the 3 position ignition switch?

51 25 1 233 276 or 51 25 1 243 273

Thanks

A '76 R90S takes the 3

A '76 R90S takes the 3 position switch. The 5 position switch was for the '74 bikes that had no light switch on the handlebars.

Another option is to wire the ignition on and use the kill switch and light switch to shut off power.
