N/o Tether Kill Switch

Hate to bring up this topic once again, especially since so many people have very stern opinions about it but here goes.
I was very worried about tapping a Pro Design N/O kill switch into the white wire on the left side of the bike since 1/2 of the people here say its evil to do that to the electronics, and the other half state no problem, so I found an old Quad magazine and on their project LTR they tapped it into the tip over switch instead. Needless to say, it didnt require any extra wiring since the tip switch is located right by the bars, and went in VERY EASY. Anyone interested in doing this as well, all you do is remove the front plastic lid, behind the aluminium plate that the electronics are mounted to you will find the tip switch, tap into the RED wire going into said switch, ground the other wire from the Kill switch to any of the numerous bolts on the frame, and bam, you are done. Correct me if I am wrong, but this should only be tripping the tip switch, and not grounding the coil pulse into the frame?

By interupting your pulse from the stator, current will take the path of least resistance and go from the stator to the frame. There should be NO voltage coming from the ECU to the stator so the ECU will not be grounded unless the ECU is faulty. The current will not make it to the ECU so it cannot monitor voltage to the coil and should get an error. Using ground to switch states either way is common inside your electrical components in your home and shouldn't be a big concern unless you are grounding a wire that is hot from the ECU. If you are concerned about grounding this wire you should also be worried that the pulsing voltage of the stator could fry your ECU as the voltage coming off it is pretty high.
