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).

BigAlan, find a few others on the island that would be interested and share the shipping cost.

Good idea- I will work with a group (easy boys!).

By the way, the first time I read that sentence I though it said "BigAlan, find a few others on the island that would be inebriated and share the shipping cost."  ;D

I would not feel dumb if I were you- those rivets are NOT self explanatory or intuitive. I didn't figure it out myself either, I picked it up somewhere; trust me, I would have pried them out and wiped out the rivet and possibly the plastic panels they held together if left to my own devices.

By the way, I took the coward's way out and cut the brake line guides off of the front fender. My thought was $6 or $8 per wheel removal would be worth it after playing with them for 20 minutes. Turns out you do not even need them.

Brian
Glad I'm not the only one to curse the brake line guides...

If thine guide offends thee, pluck it out.  Got rid of mine some years back.  Actually, they're still there but just hanging on the line itself.

I have a friend (surgeon) who lives in New York and typically she travelled to England today, i shall speak to her and see when she is coming over again (or any of her friends) and get one sent to her there, that way carrying it back here saves postage and time.

Thanks

That works.

Years ago I had a friend in England who used, as I did, Japanese model engines. The problem was that in the UK the tariffs on those things more than doubled the price. So I would procure them here and send them off with a friend of mine who happened to be a pilot on the NY / London route at that time- he would bring a folded up box that already had the address in place.
