Default Ignition Resistor/Diode

So I've searched high and low and read different answers. After the dealership went through my bike for over 8 hours they figured out the diode or whatever inside the ignition switch is bad. Does anybody know the specs on this part so I can stop by radio shack tomorrow and buy one?

Thank you!

P.S. A link would be awesome too.

2.2 ohm would be a resistor. If it's a diode you're looking for I would think any common one would work. Like a 1N914 or a 1N4001. Although keep in mind I'm not exactly sure what its function is.

where did you wire in the resistor? I have a new ignition off eBay and it doesn't have a diode or resistor in it, so I'll have to solder one in.

Need to know what resistance and where to bridge it.
