I’m assuming the starter is grounded through the chassis, but you could run a wire direct from the bat – terminal to a starter mounting bolt just to be sure. My main concern (never actually owned a push-button ignition version) is whether the primary wire to the coil still is energized now that part of your box is dead. The “external starter only” box might be the ticket.
I’m really loving my X125t and you could trade in with one 2008 and then sell your other 2008 to offset part of the cost, but the X125t might not be eligible where you are racing.
