Have a 1979 cx500 frame with a ignition and want to install it in a 1982 GL500 silverwing that does not. How is this done?

Thanks In advance.

The CX ignition sw you have closes contacts to ground an ignition wire to stop the engine. The GL (and 1982 CX500) ignition sw opens contacts to disconnect power to the ignition to stop the engine. Opposite operation.

Get a "new" CX (but not 1982) ignition switch and leave the engine in the bike and the rear cover in place.
