I have a '78 Honda CB750A Hondamatic, when I originally purchased the bike it was semi-modified and had no ignition "kill" switch, I was just turning the bike off from running with the ignition key. Now that I am in the process of fully rewiring the bike and upgrading/replacing most of the electtronics (coils, wireset, electronic ignition) I was curious if it is necessary to install a ignition "kill" switch or if it's just fine to continue turning the bike off with the ignition key without damaging any of the electronics and so forth. Thanks for any advice.

Turning off the engine with the key is perfectly acceptable. The purpose of the "kill switch" is just a safety precaution. Should an emergency arise and you need to shut down the engine in a hurry, there's a switch right near your thumb rather than having to let go of the bars and reach for the key.
