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

they indeed keep them on file, just not tied to the VIN....when you buy a bike new, it comes with a plastic tag on the key-ring...that number has your key code....few people hang onto them.

i'd watch ebay for a used key set.

Here is an easy one guys... remove the lock take it to a lock smith...1-2 days later tumblers are used to cut a stock type key so you will have one for the tank too... they do ask for photo ID and police do check with them regularly to see who is getting keys cut and for what reason. and what bike

I have looked into this but the locksmith quoted me $125 for the key and cutting. That's an aweful lot of money for a stupid key. AND I don't know how much trouble it's gonna be since I don't have a state issued title for the bike. So I"m gonna try and figure out a way to avoid that before I pony up that money! next ?... does the tumbler half the lock seperate from the wires that come out of it? Do I have to just cut the wire and splice them back together?

there is a resistor in the switch inline with the grey wire. The blue wire and red wire are not used. Basically, 12v current comes in thru the white wire and goes out to the brown wire and grey wire. Run the white wire to a single pole automotive (30amp) on-off switch, then from the switch to both the white wire and the grey wire - 100 ohm resistor - grey wire.

so you want to know how to hot wire it or you want to know how to get the key out of the ignition? you want a new ignition?

if you want to know how to hot wire it it's the same as has already been posted. get a wiring diagram and find out which wires are connected when the ignition switch is in the on position. then put a 100ohm resistor in the grey voltage sensing wire.

ok had a friend on another forum have his switch take a shit and i drew him up a diagram to get around it.

you can pretty much use any spst switch on it or use it to setup up a car style ignition from autozone or oreilly's to work it.

i found out when i wanted to do a car style ign/ starter switch so that i could clean up my bars and have absolutely no switches on it.

Ive been thru this with my zx6r banshee hybrid. Key tumbler failed after a couple years of offroad abuse...took along time to figure out because everyone thinks your gonna steal their bike. If your that worried invest in some security and stop being a pussy. All you have to do is put a 100 ohm resistor between the brown/ grey wires. This is the bikes security feature without proper resistance it will crank but not fire. F the dealer if you have a little electrical backround. Just make sure you get a beefy toggle switch to avoid future dilema.
