Hey guys,
Just wanted to drop my nickles worth. I saw this post the other day while lurking and e-mailed Brian (Wednesday), he responded with a PP addy and by saturday morning I had it in hand. This harness is very nice looks as though Kawasaki made it. You could not ask for a better answer to the Kpass issue (especially after having a problem 600 miles from home.) and Brian's quick response and shipping was a breath of fresh air in today's society. $50 is a bargin IMO.
This forum is such a great resource.

I test mine once and a while. Secretly hope my Kpass will mess up so I can take advantage of this.  Its been well worth the peace of mind having mine installed.

Install was easy and Brians instructions were top-notch.

It's like drop protection for your bike. Once you have it, you'll never need it. Just don't leave it at home...

Thanks for the kind words.

As far as shipping, PayPal and the USPS really assist in making that quick and efficient; the whole process is really pretty slick and that aids in not adding wasted time between ordering, shipping and actual delivery. The USPS has also been very efficient in delivery- the harnesses get just about everywhere in the continental US in the 2-3 days they claim it will take.

Again, thanks for the kind words.

That was the goal in making the harness really- for anyone to just be able to forget about the whole issue. Not many activation switches have failed but every one that has was certainly an unexpected event for that particular C-14 owner. So the harness is really just a mechanical way to do something to not have to think about it ever again. I used to brush off the whole KiPass activation switch sticking issue but then again, I had a bypass on my own bike from very early on so I guess I could afford to be cavalier. The great majority of C-14s will never have any kind of failure with KiPass; adding the bypass just allows those with a little bit of concern to finally forget about it entirely and not have the thought rattling around in the back of our (collective) heads. And of course the bypass is not required to work- around the stuck switch issue, it just makes it easy and fast to do so, especially if you have to do it several times such as when on a trip or something similar.

To everyone who has commented on the quality of the harness and the components used, thank you. The goal in making these harnesses was never to make them as cheaply as possible but as well as they could be made. I have tried to make the harnesses so they were the last part on the bike to fail; I like to think that the harnesses will still be functional and sealed long after all the C-14s are no longer on the road.

Well, if you read the entire thread you would have found it here http://www.zggtr.org/index.php?topic=6976.msg82841#msg82841  There isn't much more than that.  It's even got pictures.  Even I could understand it.

Yep, that link that Jim provided contains just about all the info. available. This forum along with the other forum will provide all the information you ever wanted about KiPass and a whole lot more....

If you are interested in a bypass harness drop me an e-mail and I will answer any questions you have....about the harness, answers about the stock market or politics take longer and are not free. My e-mail address is just under the icon of me and my wife riding in the snow on the top / left of  your monitor.

Thanks for the interest.

KIPASS is pretty sweet - if you have friends that do not have this feature - here is a cool alternative for them - it uses their Cell phone as the key - like the FOB is for KIPASS - pass it along:

Thanks for the kind words and glad to hear you are happy with the product and service.

And so far, the USPS has certainly done their part in delivering these things on time. They get a lot of bad press and opinions but their performance and reliability has been very good for me.... at least so far.
