hey fellas so i have a question, a rewire was done on my bike right now all that im running is the 30 main braker, and the starter relay.

I really want to ditch the starter relay for something either smaller, have any of you kats done it and if so how did you do it? what did you use?

and I would like to swap out the 30 main barker with a reset able push breaker. just for aesthetics
There is a grainger a little down the road so finding components wont be a big deal.

im looking at the site right now. any leads or what???

Push button starter solenoid would eliminate starter relay.
Why do you want to remove the relay?

yeah, the push button starter solenoid is probably your best option. You could also switch to an automotive style ignition switch, with the starter circuit built in. The better ones are heavy enough to trigger a bike starter solenoid without the relay. . If you are going to keep the button on the handlebars, you are stuck with the relay

it just annoys me seeing a big ass brick clanking around in my bike since the rewire was done already all i have it the starter relay and 30 main but looks like ill be keeping the relay ill just fab a better housing for it.

Check these out. Pushbutton resetable and they're marine grade so they are waterproof.

That breaker will work, but it's ugly. Just hide it next to the relay:p
