    So my girls blaster was stolen and the guys hotwired it and when I got it back I ordered a new ignition and hooked it up and the bike wouldn’t start so after putting the “hot wires “ back I realized they would connect them to kill the ignition so now when I put the new ignition back on it has to be set to off to start , what do these son of a bitches do!!??

    The key and kill switches for blasters both just connect the black/white stripe wire to a black ground wire, shorting out the CDI, to kill the engine.
    So connected wires (off) the bike won't start, break the connection (on/run) allows it to start.

    If you bought a generic switch, it probably connects the ignition to start it, and breaks it to kill it.
    The opposite of what's needed on a blaster.

    I bought one from ebay that had the same problem. Off was on and on was off.
