I bought this bantam all in pieces,ive assembled it and it is all running but slight problem with electrics, the light switch has got L and H on it, when you turn it to right the headlight works ,turn it to left on L the side light works but i am not able to turn the engine off,has anybody got any idea what it could be or am i able to fit a kill switch separately.
