Run/ Stop switch
The Run/Stop swith is usualy found on the right hand side handle bar. It's a safety switch, it's there so that if you have to shut your engine quickly, it's faster to use this switch than taking you hands off the bars and turn off the key.
 To check this you'll need a continuity tester. 
 Just find the closest connection on the two wires leading from the switch and undo the connections. Then place the two terminals of the tester on the connection to the swicth (at the handlebars) then turn the switch if it goes buzz or the light comes on then you know it's working. These rarely go wrong.
 If they don't get the connection either clean the connections inside the switch casing and check it again. 
 If it doesn't you'll have to replace it.
