KIPASS BYPASS Mod by BDF
« on: February 17, 2012, 03:26:40 am »
Glad you got it started :)

...  I have a very limited number of KiPass activation switch bypass harnesses and will be putting them up for sale shortly. Not as elegant as a K-rock perhaps but a lot faster and easier. ......

I will take one of the switches please. Put me on the list.

Brian, after the last several threads on this subject, I think you'll sell all you can make.  I want one as well.  I've only had two instances (one a few days ago) of the stuck switch, but I would like the insurance.

I would be shocked if that worked on a 2011.

I wouldn't.  It's the same mechanism.  However, I am hoping that Kwak has put the 'improved'  spring in the later models to prevent this issue from happening.  I think we've had anecdotal evidence that it occurred on a '10.  Don't remember the outcome, though.

Brian to the rescue! Well done Brian.

Hey Jim, we need a sticky with Brian's emergency kipass activation method in it.

Not yet.  If I do sticky that info it will be in the Wiki area with a hot link in the Accessory area.  When Brian puts up his wiring harness for sale, I'll sticky that in the Accessory forum for awhile so that the general membership can see it.   I'll also put it in the Industry member area.  So there will be multiple links to the information in the future.

We had something like that in the first forum.  Thinking more about that I may start cobbling together something soon.  Brian had a wonderful thread on how to troubleshoot the no start but I think it was in the first forum..  Off a searching I will go.

Let me know when you are ready to sell them, I would be interested in one.

Great- glad that it saved you a tow. You can actually finish your vacation still using the bike- leave the top cover off and unplug / reconnect that connector whenever you need to start the bike. It is a pain but at least you will not have to abandon your trip.

Brian

Brian -- You NAILED it!!! I was able to get the motorcycle running this evening using the steps that you outlined. Tomorrow I will ride to the dealer in San Diego and get the motorcycle fixed. Yes, I will have to cancel the rest of my ride, but at least I get to ride my motorcycle to be fixed rather than have it towed!!

To the doubters: My offer stands. Anytime anyone would like to come by my house for dinner, coffee, or tire kicking, or if anyone needs a place to stay while riding, please get in touch.

Again Brian, thank you!

If this is a plug and play bypass I want one please.

I think a little cutting is required.  ::)  Kind of a gray area.  ::)
