Default Question, Yamaha Dual Key Switch

Yamaha Dual Key switch has the kill switch with the lanyard, next to it there’s a toggle switch. What does that toggle switch do (purpose)?

Sounds like an extra switch added on for who knows what. My panel only has the two key switched and kill switch. All the pics I saw online have the same three switches.

Never seen one like that, but my guess is it is a bypass for the kill switch.

It is quite common to think that because a Yamaha motor or part is one way that they are all the same way. This has led me down the proverbial rabbit home more times than I care to recall.

Both the early versions of the 703 control box and the standalone key switch panels used a spring loaded toggle switch to activate the choke. They were then replaced by a key switch that incorporated a push to choke function. I suspect your key switch has the latter. Which is no longer needed by the majority of Yamaha models.
