Ignition Switch to Toggle Switch - Resistor?

I have a 2005 Vulcan 800 Classic (Bobber), I bought it trashed out and after working through a lot of issues found that the ignition switch was trashed. I bought a 2 prong toggle switch and connected all the wires and everything turns on but I am not getting a spark on my plugs. I did notice a resistor on the inside of the ignition switch, would I have to incorporate that somehow? Could that be there reason I am not getting a spark?

Yes, it must be in series with the gray wire. If you cannot salvage the existing one, it is a 100ohm.

I'm trying to think how to do that with only 2 prongs. Any ideas?

Problem solved! 100ohm resistor on the grey wire and LUCY is alive. I appreciate the help.
