Reverse Override switch removal

Gonna remove this switch and install my heater blower switch, for my fan in the engine cowling, in its place. Can I just eliminate the wiring harness out from the override switch to the cut out solenoid on the right lower side of the engine? The manual says nothing about this solenoid. Its got 2 wires going to the solenoid and switch, in the harness, it has a hot wire going to the CDI box, which engages the cut out solenoid by energizing the solenoid when max rpm's are met, either in reverse or forward. My FX CDI box removed the reverse limiter and increased the top end rpms by 2000.
I'm thinking that the solenoid will still be energized by the CDI box at max forward RPM's. But, I may be wrong. What do you guys think?

Not sure how it is wired, how many wires to the switch? If only two, you could jumper them at the switch and see if you have any start/run issues. Just a suggestion!

Only 2. Its hot when the switch is pushed. I know I can just remove the switch with no side affects. Just wondering about the harness to the solenoid. I'm heading out to work on it now. I'll see what I can figure out. Working on the alternator install today as well. Have to finish it up before the blade in needed. Could always mount it on Denise's Grand Prix.

Traced the switch wiring, three pole switch, only two posts used. From what I could see, it is a gounding circuit. It goes back to the 2 wheel drive solenoid, and when activated Completes the circuit.

I just took mine out and made a jumper for the wire harness. Had to make room for light switches. 3 years now with no problems. And no more rev limeter in reverse, win win

2 wires to the solenoid, one hot and the other is the ground that is completed by the override switch. If your CDI box already has a by-pass you can eliminate the wires going to the switch. You darn kids play way to much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!LOL

So, if I disconnect and remove the harness from the switch and the solenoid, I'll be ok?

I raised my rev limiter with my box also. But 8,300 RPM's on these engines is screaming! The stock limit on the 700 XTX is 7,300. Before my mods, mine would quit pulling in high around 6,000. After mods, it pulls through 7,000 + with no effort!
