A kill switch is possible to rig up but he would have to find the lanyard type switch, figure a way to secure it to the motor.I'm pretty sure he would have to pull the flywheel to get to the wiring.If the kill switch has 2 wires on goes to each coil wire that is connected to the points the other wire goes to ground.When the kill switch closes it shorts the point circuit to ground killing the motor.Don't leave the original point wires unhooked.Simply connect the kill switch to that point.I believe on some lanyard switches the body of the switch may be the ground connection so when it is mounted it needs to be common with the block of the motor which is ground.If neccessary this could be done with a wire.
