This thread may belong in the 2-stroke section...not sure.

I'm laying out all of my switches for my build and had a question about the starting system.

If a Rotax 670 is set up to use a start solenoid in the system then how much voltage/amps will the start switch see when activated ?
I don't want to use a standard keyed ignition switch but would rather use a momentary switch on the throttle to activate the starter and individual switches to kill the mags.
What is the appropriate rated switch that I would need to activate the start solenoid ?

Thanks for the answers guys.....and that was a great article BJC.
I was pretty confident that I already knew the answer to the question before I even asked...but I will admit that electrical is not my strongest suit and wanted validation before I start ordering all of my switches.
Thanks for the help....
