Most don't do it because it makes it that much easier to steal the bike.

Re: Keyless start??

disconnect the 4 wires going to the ignition. Put a toggle switch between the two thicker wires, connect the two thinner wires together. Tada! you're done.

I'm gonna try this for now just to see if she will start. I havn't gotten a chance to try since my key went missing during my accident. Do you have to cut any wires or anything?? Would i be able to reconnect these wires to a new ignition down the road??

Thanks

Re: Keyless start??

$100 for that!!!!!
If you have your ignition off the bike what you can do is cut the wires after the plug because you don't have the key anyway then you can plug in the connection and solder the two smaller wires together and put a switch on the two bigger wires if that is how it's wired. Then you can pull the plug off if you get another ignition. Another option that we have done is wire the ignition into the run/stop switch making it the ignition and the run button. Then you don't have to buy anything, just hook it up. T

When you cut the wires just leave enough on all the original connectors so that you can solder them back together later. That way if you change your mind you can redo the ignition.


*EDIT, If i remember correctly, the thicker wires on the bikes harness can have male spade connectors inserted, so you won't have to cut that connector off. The two thinner wires can probably have a little jumper wire made the same way, with either male or female space connectors shoved into the wiring harness.

Re: Keyless start??

On my old R6 race bike I ran a 12v relay in the ignition lines and tripped the relay with voltage running through the kill-switch on the handle bars. It worked pretty slick ... no need for a key and the ignition went off when you flipped the red button.

On my new race bike I just safety wired wired the key into the ignition.

Re: Keyless start??

i was looking at it last night. It looks like i can just cut the wires about 3-4 inches after the connector and put the two small wires together to one side of a toggle switch and the two larger wires to the other side of the switch. If i cut the wires before the connector i should be able to just unplug the ignition wire plugs and plug a new ignition module into it when i get a new one right? My ignition is crushed pretty bad from when the bike went end over end down the highway. I just want to do this temporary to see if it will start. I am going to get a new ignition and lock set that comes with a key off ebay in the spring.
