Ignition Switch

Post by sixtiescycle » Tue Jan 03, 2017 1:01 am

It's similar to a CA type switch but it's not. Six prong plug, only four key positions, key is removable in the 1st and 4th positions. It came with some CB450K0 Type 2 parts and if that is what it's for I think the fourth position is probably the park lights. Can anyone comfirm what it might fit for sure?

It looks like a CB450k0 switch. If it is, it has four positions. The CB450k0 doesn't have a separate on/off switch for the headlight like the CB77, so it is incorporated into the ignition switch. The positions are: off, on with lights, on without lights, park. I may have the middle two mixed up, though. The K0 also had the six pin rectangular connector vs the round connector that the later 450s had.

Yep you are correct, unburied my CB450D and it's the same switch. Thanks!!

I could be wrong here, but doesn't the early 450 use a switch with 7 wires ? The CB/CL160 uses a main switch with a 6 pole connector.
