Opps- missed this post, sorry.

Complete instructions come with the harness. Basically, you have to remove the top / left fairing cover, unplug a connector and then plug in the new harness into the connectors on the bike; very easy to do.

Shipping to Spain is expensive: last time I checked, it was $27 to Europe! (my cost- I do not mark up shipping). The good news is that for the same shipping price, you can get both the KiPass activation switch bypass and the low fuel warning indicator in the same box. But unfortunately, it is still expensive for us to ship outside the US.

Hi Brian.¡
Can you indicate the installation?
Is it easy to install?
Could you put on the web explanatory pdf documents on the installation.
tell me the shipping to Spain
Thank you

Question regarding care and feeding of the stoveknob and its scurrilous spring -- will using a lockset lubricant keep things more or less springy?

Apologies if this bit of info is covered somewhere else -- if it's in the owner's manual, I missed it.

I don't have problems with my C14 yet (only 500 miles on it so far), but as I routinely remove the stoveknob when I park it, condensation can get down inside of the lockset I would think, creating the expected corrosion...

Lets try to keep this thread 'pure' for it's intended purpose which is ordering and questions about the BYPASS Mod itself.  As far as questions on lubing the switch assembly go ahead and create a new thread on that.  Thanks.

10 Nov. 2015: I have some of these back in stock finally. I tried to contact all who had contacted me about purchasing one but if I missed anyone, I apologize and it was not on purpose.

That's the whole point, isn't it?  It's insurance and piece of mind.

Yep, just like a spare tire.... we all have them, not too many of us actually use them and all of us hope to not use them.

This is one of those things that does not enhance the bike, is nothing you can point out, and certainly will not amuse the bike owner nor others like a lot of other, shinier farkles do. But maybe, just maybe, it could save a LOT of really nasty words followed by a [walk, taxi ride, friend picking you up] and having the bike towed.

Think of how much easier it is to install Canyon Cages when the bike is laid out right there in front of you on it's side.

Brian, I bought one the first  units you made. WHY?

When you get this bike, there is a certain percentage of failure with this spring....5%, 10% who knows.

However, becoming aware of the issue makes this number double. 

Becoming aware of this possible issue, and doing nothing, makes this number double again.

Go out and look at your bike, in the safety of your garage. Decide which towing company you'd call, and how exactly you could strap it to a tow vehicle without damage.

I know we cant guarantee never breaking down. Still,...

I dont remember how much money I paid for my harness. However, when I walk towards the bike after I've parked it at the top of  a canyon, and the phone says "No service", its nice to know the ignition barrel issue wont stop me. For me, that is like paying for  a spare tire and its well worth whatever I had to pay.

If these thigns were 5000.00, then sure, we could talk about it.  When you buy a piece of emergency equipment, and can forget the price, its a good deal.

Thanks for the kind words. And yep, they are not $500 but $50, including postage.

Some people ask me if they can store the bypass on the bike and then actually install it if / when needed. Of course that could be done but it rather defeats the purpose of the bypass in the first place, which is to provide an easy, quick and absolute solution to a stuck activation switch. I think it is much, much easier to install the bypass in a few minutes of spare time, in the garage or wherever the owner normally stores the bike, where there is decent light, instructions and no urgency. And the second part of that is basically what you said; the whole purpose of the bypass is to absolutely put it out of the C-14's owner's mind as even a sliver of worry so installing it on the bike and forgetting about it (until needed) is the best way to go.

No problem, and the answer is yes I am still making them. I also happen to have some in stock at the moment and will ship the morning after the order is placed.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions before you purchase; you can post any question(s) publicly, in this thread if you choose, or e- mail me directly and I will get back to you (my e-mail is the icon just under my avatar at the top / left of any of my posts).
