How to hotwire ?

Hi Guys'n Gall's

I've lost the key for 99 ZX6R, i built it into a trackbike so i don't need the key anyway.
As far as i can se from the diagram i need to put the red and blue wire together and connect Brown/White/Gray.

When i do this it does everything, engine crancks instruments light up coils reciver power, fuel pump works, but what i dont get i spark from my sparkplugs ????[xx(]
I have trackday saturday, so quick will be apriciated.

I tried the same thing when my ignition toook a crap on me and left me stranded, everything would work but no fire....I have NO clue as to why either. Go take your title to a dealer and get a new key made

No offense meant but if you had been more of a longer member i would have gladly helped you out but i will not partake in possibly offering a thief a lesson of how to get past the ignition system. If you are genuine then as burple says take your title to a dealer and either get them to sort a new key out or help you bypass the ignition.

i agree with deathace look at the barrel and there should be a code on there somewere take that code to your local kawasaki dealer and they should order you a key otherwise i'd drill out the security bolts and fit a new one

plus with some later modles theres a built in imobileiser in the cdi
you try and hot wire it and itll screw the bike you'll need a new cdi and other parts according to my mate andy who say's its on his Z750

There is a clean way around it...but I question putting it out on the internet as well.

On a more brute force method. A buddy had his coat stolen while we were playing pool/eating lunch...lost his keys and we were 2+ hours from home...we pounded a flat head screw driver into the lock and turned it that way...lock was junk, but he could ride home. I've seen guys do this at the race track that forgot keys at home too.

This is the same thing with boats, it is a very simple fix, but like everyone says no one is going to help because we could be helping a thief.....

well either my local Kawasaki dealer was jerking me around or Kawasaki was stupid and doesn't keep key codes on file. I had the key to my 05 ZX6R thrown out in the trash. I looked into a replacement and they told me the only option was to remove the ignition and buy a new one. But that still doesn't fix the problem that once I get it running I can only go as far as is in the tank cause I can't open the gas tank without a key. To make matters worse, my bike is a track only bike. I bought it from someone who bought it from Copart as a salvage only bike. A small dent in the frame and 400 miles. The problem, it was NEVER titled. And obviously the MSO didn't make it through the salvage process so the only proof I have of ownership is a Copart reciept that I can't lay my hands on and a bank loan. So I need help on two fronts. One, how can I file for a title? And TWO, how can I bypass the key? I understand the lack of intrest in posting so feel free to call with details. If you would like refferences I can get you to talk to several members of CMRA. They will vouch for me. FYI, Central Motorcycle Racing Association is the club of the south. The same club that turned out Ben Spies.... I actually got to turn laps with him at TWS. I didn't say I kept up... just turned laps!!! LMAO ;D 903-826-3932 please call with details about the ignition bypass! Russel Green
