Ignition switch on my 2006 Girly needs a replacement... I resoldered it twice in recent years, this time I will opt for a replacement. While waiting for the new part I'd like to use the bike for minor trips in secure places.

I have a bracelet waterproof 12v switch (rated 20A, bought for auxiliary lights) I could convert for this purpose. The key switch does have three positions (running, off/default, parking lights), so I expected to find four wires at maximum coming out from the ignition switch connector going to the key switch. But they are more :icon_scratch:

I also noted (main harness side) that there are two thicker power wire (12V+), one is brown, the second pink
I just need to run the bike (never used parking lights  :icon_mrgreen:)

Which power wire (brown one or pink one) to connect to which colour wire(s) through my bracelet switch?

Thanks in advance for any tip...
