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.

I just saw this question.

What the bypass is and what it does are defined earlier in this thread. There are pictures here: http://www.zggtr.org/index.php?topic=6976.msg82841#msg82841

The bypass bypasses a stuck activation switch on KiPass. When you press the key down to 'wake up' the bike, you are using the KiPass activation switch. Occasionally, that switch sticks and as a result the bike cannot be started until that switch is fixed or some type of bypass used. This is a user- installable bypass that is put into the bike before that switch sticks and if and when it does, the bypass is readily available and an easy way to work around that stuck activation switch.

Do a Google search, or a search on this forum for KiPass and 'stuck kipass', '[put bad words here] KiPass', etc. and you will find a wealth of information. Well, perhaps not a wealth actually but certainly a lot of it.  ;)

If you have any specific questions ask away and I will be happy to answer them.

Yeah, nothing screams 'elegant' like screaming at and beating on your bike with a rock.... For those people, we will soon be coming out (easy boys!) with a new model bypass that the owner operates by unscrewing the wirenut and scraping the wires against each other. ;D

Ah, the UK.... sorry to bear bad news but that is a little pricey unfortunately. I charge actual shipping costs and to the UK it is $10 (US dollars, sorry but I do not know the USD -> GBP conversion) w/out tracking number or insurance, and an additional $13 for tracking and insurance for a total shipping price of $23 (!!). The price of the harness itself is $50 and includes shipping but only in the US. For whatever reason, shipping outside the US is very expensive using our postal service (or any other than I have found). And it is less convenient for me as well because I actually have to go to the post office with international packages while domestic shipping is done via postal pickup. Even Kirby thinks the whole international shipping thing is a little.... <wait for it> nuts.

Shipping time is usually pretty quick although the last one I shipped to the UK took a couple of weeks- maybe it got hung up in customs? Normal time is more like a week or so.

You can dilute the cost of shipping somewhat by buying both a KiPass activation switch bypass as well as the Low fuel warning eliminator at the same time- shipping cost remains at the above stated price but both items will come in the same box. A thread about the low fuel warning eliminator is here: http://www.zggtr.org/index.php?topic=13852.0

And we can be on a first-name basis if you want so feel free to call me B.  ;D  (Brian)

As always, please feel free to ask any questions either on the forum directly or via e-mail (under my name on the top / left of this page- the little letter icon).
