Found a cheap one on eBay that looked smaller. In my case it came off a 2016 z1000
They fit on a treat but the wiring doesn’t match. If plugged in the bike will crank regardless of switch position or button press. Ask me how i know.....The plug is the same.
I repinned the plug and I’m back on the road 22g lighter lol.
To repin
On the switch plug there’s two tabs on the side and these retain a sort of collar within the plug.
Press these in and the collar should come out
There’s a rubber o ring below that, remove that too
Then each wire has a small plastic tab that holds it in place.
Use a scribe to push down and remove the wire then, re pin as per my pics

I should mention that the reason I needed a new switch was that I’ve moved to a z1 brake master cylinder and Zx6r throttle housing was required because the cables were in the way. So to change the throttle cables, I had to change the switch ...
found out I had a quick throttle tube on my bike in the process also; winning !
For those interested, theres R6 throttle tubes on eBay that fit for under 20 bucks
Apparently “2006 Yamaha r6 throttle tube and grip has a 40mm throttle cam. The 05 tube has a 38mm cam”
