    I wanted to put a master disconnect on my motor bike but they are to large to fit anywhere. I got a heavy-duty 12v 50a relay from G.rilys, to use as a cutoff. Wired In series with the ground it fires by a toggle switch hooked up to the mains. I tested it with a charger , but I am still a little worried about charging amps.

    Why?
    Do you have a 50+ amp alternator and a group 24 or larger size battery on your bike? o_O

    Use the right size of wire for the job.

    Why do you need a disconnect on a motorcycle anyway?

    I don't follow the reasoning.

    As for heavy duty compact switches any common auto parts store carries heavy duty high current push pull type switches. Many rated for 50 - 75 amp continuous duty like this,.

    Amazon. $6.96 with 75 amp rating. https://www.amazon.com/Grote-82-2100-Push-Pull-Switch/dp/B001RLH2FW
