Security - Starter Cut Relay

I've been searching high and low for a schematic of how to wire up a starter kill relay.

Is anyone good with relays? It's been a long time since I've had to wire one. I found basic starter cut relays, but what I want is a little more tricky.

If you are making a security engine cut off switch then you may be making it more complicated then you should.
The small wire that is at the back of the starter is from the starter relay and if you pulled that wire your starter will not work.
A simple on/off toggle switch in line with that wire would do as a security shut off.
This will not prevent a group of thieves from loading your bike in a trailer or pickup and driving away.

My end goal is to have it so the left turn signal must be pushed before the starter is pushed in order for the bike to start. So the left turn signal will energize the relay, closing the starter loop and allowing it to start.

Depending on what year your bike is, this may be attainable. I wouldn't try it with a '15 with the CANBUS system.

Next thing to question or find out is the feed to the TS switch. It should be a constant 12v so you would need the output side of the switch to energize it. You should be able to find all the wiring at the fuse box. You'd need the input to the left TS relay from the switch and tap into it to trigger the relay for the starter kill.

A.K.A OBB

Using a turn signal switch would be hard to do unless you disabled the turn signal function. Use of the horn switch or AUX switch or rear speaker switch would be a lot easier.
Still a toggle switch in a discrete location would work well.
IMO it is a waste of time to do this mod unless you are in a high crime area. In most cases the factory security with alarm and the steering lock is enough along with a good insurance policy and there absolutely nothing you can do if someone wants to steal your saddlebags or other accessories or pick up your bike and load it in a truck or trailer.

It's as simple as a little added precaution. I don't live in a high crime area at all, but I do tend to ride into them. Since I don't live in a high crime area, I tend to leave my bike unlocked out of habit. Adding this extra step to starting the bike makes my lack of locking a little safer since just anyone can't jump on the bike.

It's a 2009. So it won't be an issue. I have all the wires at the bars, so it'll be an easy wire in point. I believe I've figured out the wiring, now it's just s matter of getting it done and testing it.
