2001 Polaris Scrambler 500 Kill Switch issues

I have a 01 scrambler that will not run with the black wire hooked up from the CDI. I currently have the wire cut going to the throttle hang switch. What all Kill/safety switches are on the bike and how can i check them?

Wait are the throttle contacts supposed to touch or not?

under normal operation the contacts should NOT be touching, if they are then most likely the cable needs to be adjusted.

Any online diagnostic advice is at best an "Educated Guess".
