Me, personally, I dont have it connected to the dash. I just simply have 2 wires and the switch run under my dash, under the steering wheel, and then jnext to my radio, just laying next to my shifter.

I don't have pictures of it, but i'll take some tomorrow and post them up.

Not my setup, but I drew one for you of basically what it looks like.

Would something like this work, connected the same way?
Maybe it could be additionally routed through an unused on/off switch in the dash for anti theft purposes.

KILL ON/OFF SWITCH HONDA XR/CRF 50 XR50 CRF50 125 KS11 - eBay (item 310208344597 end time Mar-15-11 12:08:26 PDT)
Yeah, that would work. Or an auto parts store like autozone or o'reilys carry switches and wires.

anti-theft

What if you were to use a toggle switch instead and tuck it under the dash? Then I'm guessing you could switch it off until it kills the motor, then right back on, once you are ready you could pop the clutch or turn the key. Would this work? Then you could just leave it in the killed position as an anti-theft device when your parked

Yep, everything you said is what I do. When I want to EOC, I switch it off, then back on, then bump start with the clutch to start the engine again. This way I don't wear down the starter and ignition mechanism.

When I park the car, the switch can also double as an engine kill anti theft device.

Nothing special. Just 2 wires and a switch.

There's a fuse box under the dash to the left. Is that where the relay is?

As I don't ever use cruise control, maybe one of the buttons could be used for an anti theft deterrent, if I could figure out the wiring. I'd rather not use the k/s for that. Any suggestions are much appreciated.

Yes, the gray box/relay is beside the fuse box. Not sure about how to use your cruise for that. I finished mine a couple days ago with a toggle switch, then tucked it under the dash somewhere convenient to me, but not so obvious to anyone trying to steal my car! So when it's parked I just leave it "off", and also use it as my kill switch when driving, just flip it off, wait a sec then back on.

This is my first attempt to atach pics, so here it goes. . .
Here is a pic of the relay with harness unplugged, then the harness with the ground wire removed, then you see my wires running from the harness and from the ground wire which lead to the toggle switch (last photo):
