Just curious. Will these work for people that may have lost their fobs?

100% not. You can not start a C14 without a fob period.

No, nothing reasonable or affordable will replace a lost fob besides another fob....  The bypass is only used to work around a stuck activation switch, at which point any number of fobs won't help.

Once I get to my new address in Colorado I will be ordering one of these. Good thread, glad they made it a sticky.

Installed mine last night.  Bought it about a year ago.  Sad, true.  literally a 15 minute job, tools out to tools back and hands washed.  Tested it, worked EXACTLY as described. 

Buy one.

Another happy customer.  Just installed the bypass now, hardest part was getting the damn existing connector apart. 

Thanks, Brian!!

Thanks for the kind words. Glad the install went well for you.

The connector is tight but that is because it is very well sealed so really it is 'a good thing'. Those things really are waterproof.

Finally, at long last, there is now a website that makes the KiPass activation switch bypass available. No information yet but I am still trying to figure out how to make scrolling text pages. But the site is functional and will also function as inventory control; if the 'Buy' button works then I have some in stock. If inventory is exhausted, the buy function will not work until the stock is replenished. Or at least that is how I think it will work if I have set it up correctly.  ::)

Update: 10 July 2013, the site will now accept payment for the bypass or anything else listed.

I just bought my 2011 and realize that I probably won't need this it is nice to know I won't be stuck on the road in case the switch goes bad. Brian, I just ordered the unit, can you get to the fuse holder without having to remove anything i.e. just reach in and find it?

Yes. I just leave mine hanging (easy boys!) and reach under the cover to find it. Some people prefer to mount the fuse holder cover to the fairing cover or similar. It comes with sticky backed Velcro hook 'n loop fastener already on the fuse holder cover so the choice is up to you.

Your harness will go out tomorrow morning.

Thanks for the order.

I sold one to a gentleman a week or so ago who's bike had the switch stuck closed all the time. He was negotiating with either his dealer or Kawasaki to fix the ign. switch ass'y but that is really what should happen, under warranty IMO. But at the moment, he was using the bypass to start the bike every-time. Glad to provide a useful device but sorry to hear he needed it so often.
