Keyless? I am intrigued... Care to provide more details? How? How long? Tools? Cursing? The whole deal...

Ok, i was determined to do this on my 05. we know the wiring is different from 03-04, and the writeup floating around the net doesnt work for the 04+ exactly. well it's really close. i am going to modify the write up everyone has been going by for the 04+ gixxers.

as far as the key what you need to do is this:

Parts:

100 Ohm Resistor, 1/2 watt, 5% tolerance: Radio Shack part 271-1108
18-20 Gauge Wire (two different colors)
Electrical Tape

I soldered all of the connections. If you would rather use connectors and
a crimping tool, you will need to have a supply on hand. I am not sure how
one would install the resistor with out a soldering iron.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here is the legend for the various wires involved in the re-wiring:

Wire Colors and Functions (Right Handle Switch (Kill Switch)):

O/B (Orange with Black Tracer) -- Kill Switch
O/W (Orange with White Tracer) --

Wire Colors and Functions (Key Switch):

R-Red- 12v
O-Orange- Instrument cluster/Headlight
O/Y-Orange Yellow-ECU
Br-Brown-Taillight
O/G-Orange/Green-???
O/Br-Orange/Brown-???

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Removal:

The first step is to remove the two wiring harnesses that will be
modified: the key switch and the right clip-on switch cluster. Find and
disconnect the connectors that connect these harnesses to the main wiring
harness. (under the gas tank under the airbox)The key switch has two connectors along the right frame spar.
The right clip-on switch cluster has a connector just in front of the
radiator on the right side. You will have to open some zip ties and a
clamp to get the harnesses free.

To remove the key switch, you will have to take off the top triple clamp
and remove the two tamper resistant Torx bolts. I do not have the correct
Torx bits so I drilled the heads of the bolts off. To remove the right
clip-on switch cluster, you will need to disconnect the throttle cables
from the cluster.


------------------------------------------------------------------------

Right Clip-on Switch Cluster Harness Modification:

The goal here is to re-wire this harness so the circuit the kill switch
normally controls is always connected (run) and to have two wires coming
out of the harness connected to the kill switch.

In the run position, the kill switch completes a circuit between the O/B
and O/W wires. The O/W wire actually connects to the starter button and
the kill switch. A "Y" is formed about 4 inches down the wiring harness
from the switch. Cut into the sheath and find where the O/W wire forms the
"Y" and cut the O/W wire that leads to the kill switch. Cut the O/B wire
at the same point in the harness and solder it to the O/W running to the
Starter Switch. Run a pair of wires through the sheath and connect them to
the O/W and and O/B wires from the kill switch. Leave about 9" of wire
hanging out from the sheath at the connector end. Use electrical tape to
insulate all of the connections and to cover the cut in the sheath.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Key Switch Harness Modification:

This one is actually quite simple. Start by cutting all the wires 2" from
the main connector. Cut the O/G and O/Br wires at the connector so they are slightly recessed since they will not be used.

Strip the red wire, and solder it to one side of the kill switch wires you extended. Strip the O/Y wire, and solder one side of the 100 ohm resistor to it. Strip the brown wire and Orange wire, and solder those and the open end of the 100 ohm resistor to the other side of the Kill switch switch.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Putting it All Together:

Set the kill switch to off.

Take the key switch harness and right clip-on switch cluster harness
connectors and plug them into the corresponding connectors on the main
wiring harness. If needed, cut the appropriate amount of wire from the
right clip-on switch cluster harness to allow for an uncluttered
connection.

Put the kill switch in the "run" position. The bike should power on
and be ready to start. Try starting the bike. If it starts, you are just
about done.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Finishing Up:

Reinstall the right clip-on switch cluster and clean up the wiring harness
connections.

That's it......


now if someone would like to double check what the orange/green and orange/brown wires are...we can finish this write up 110%!!! however my bike DOES START AND RUN with no FI light and no key.


-------------------------------------------------------------

so i just took her for a ride, and i bought all new stainless hardware....but didnt think i needed washers...i was wrong 130 mph my **** looked like the batmobile as my plastics ripped off and scatterd across the road, i was so shook up i stopped and was doing a u turn, and went to slow and laid it down. had to go back pick my fairings up and carry them back to the house cause i dont have a car so i couldnt just huck em in a ditch and go get the cage.........

no no, it's a track thing, alot of track guys run keyless ignition incase you wipe out you dont rick snapping the key off in the ignition and you can pick it back up and keep going. the bike was missing ALOT of stuff when i bought it, it came from an auction, im assuming it was a theft recovery because on eof the things missing was the ignition. well a new ignition is either 125 on ebay or 225 from the dealer, and i also wanted to save myself some money

Well, with installing a keyless ignition, I am suggesting that you're setting this bike up for another theft recovery in the near future!

Any Aussies that want your bike painted.....give me a holler! www.paintwerks.com.au

that would only be assuming that you simply click the kill switch to turn it on

i wont be riding it ONLY on the track so it will have other goodies to keep it anti theft


p.s. I need a CCW class! and i live near detroit

Could you repeat those instructions? You lost me at "100 Ohm resistor".

2005 GIXXER 1K and 2008 ZX 10R.

haha thats the only thing that needs to be added/changed, the rest is just connecting certain wires here and there.

I used to have several ignitions back when I was in college...I worked for a locksmith and used to repo cars and bikes...I used to have plug in switches where I could unplug your ignition, plug mine in, flip the switch and be off...sometimes I would have to drill under the forks to unlock them...
