here is a pic of what my switch looks like and can i just get the cap thingy and lanyard somewhere ?? or should i just replace the whole unit ?

I would leave it jumped or replace with a simple on/off toggle switch - would be a theft preventer if it was not marked. Does anybody really attach it to themselves in case they get thrown out of a MC! It must be based on boat length as we also have a SeaRay 24' Sundeck and it has a simple on/off switch as the kill switch. Understand the need on a CC boat or PWC but not on an MC.
