Hey,

Does anyone know of a kit harness to bypass the key? I'm wanting to just run a toggle switch for startup and would like to know if there is a simple mod for bypassing the key on my 2006 R6

Thanks!

yeah you can get the race wiring harness that has just the essentials

you 'should' be able to get a YEC race harness from the dealership. thats where we got ours for last years race bike. if they cant get one, they should be able to point you in the right direction

or you could save the money and make your own.. there is maybe 4 wires going to the ignitin 2 big ones, 2 little one.

i thought the ignition switch was coded (prevent hotwiring)

well if anything, its a resistor.

knowing which resistance and it'll work. but if people have done it without one, then that is all you need - just a toggle switch. The brown/red wires

Gimp,

Is there a "how to" anywhere on how to wire the ignition bypass to the start/stop toggle?

I just did this on my 07 track bike conversion so here's a real answer. There is no code or resistance value. You're going to need a double Pole toggle switch since there are 4 wire and they need to be connected in pairs to turn on the bike. Big wire with big wire, small with small. Don't let the bigs contact the small and vise versa. I don't know if this would do anything bad but its not worth risking.

The resistor value is done on gsxr where its pretty easy to remove the ignition key switch (with fork locking). My last track bike was a 05 750 and it needed a 100 ohlms on the wire to the ECU.

It seems yamaha just made it impossible to remove the bolts for the ignition switch so they didn't do anything for electronics.

If you need a diagram or switch recommendation pm me and I could help you out.

So do you still lock your bike? Or do you just cut the wires going to the ignition key switch so that it no longer requires you to put a key it in? Basically what im asking is, how do you keep people from just walking up to your bike and hitting the switch, then jumping on and riding off?

I forgot to mention this is for my race bike conversion. I'm always worried about forgetting the key at home. This is the only situation I would recommend converting to a keyless ignition. If someone where to gain access to my garage there is nothing stopping them from riding my bike away.

So how did you remove the ignition switch from the frame if it is extreemly difficult/impossible to remove? Did you cut into the barrel part that houses the ignition for the key?

Oh, and does the stock kill switch not work for a toggle? I'm wanting to use the stock kill switch for turning the ignition on and off,etc for my track bike.

Cheers

the key switch assembly is attached to the top triple tree so you can remove that as an assembly. Unplug the key switch from the harness and put the whole works into a vise or something secure to hold it (a trusting friend perhaps) use a center punch and mark the center of the 'bolt' holding the key switch in place. starting with a small drill , drill into the bolt and keep using bigger drills until the head of the 'bolt' pops off. With both heads removed, the key switch assembly will separate from the triple tree. Grab onto the remainder of the bolts that are still in the triple tree with a vise grip and thread them out.


Removing the key switch assembly isn't the hardest thing in the world to do, just kind of a pain in the a** because its so time consuming. The past couple weeks all I've been doing at work is replacing Yamaha key switches and this is the fastest way so far. Hope this helps:cheers

Another reason to go keyless is with crash damage. Ever have a key break off in the ignition. The Suzuki (SV, GSXR) require the use of a 100 ohm resistor to fool the ECU and use a security type bit to remove the ignition bolts.

thats my reason right there.... crash damage and i just wanna see if it will crank.

So big wire to big wire and small wire to small wire. Big wires to one side of a toggle switch and small wires to the other side? Thats it?
