I have the OFT one, and it came with a loop that you can put in to disable the kill switch. It supposed to be for testing (wink) but I have it installed.

I hate bumping the kill switch in the worst time, so I just rely on the tether. Some people wrap a rubberband around the switch to make it that you have to hold it down to kill it, bumping will just make it stumble and come back on.

Is there a Yamaha Rider out there that hasn't done that?

I run the oft as well, and it has worked flawless. The kill switch disable is a great feature since mine was broke off and wasn't useable anymore.

Yeah we all watched in amazement when you took several passes and then decided to go into the trees anyway.
