Almost perfect Conrad. The only thing you missed was the switch- I am using a removable fuse instead of a switch because it is more reliable, and I am looking for the ultimate in reliability here, and it will only be used rarely. Plus a fuse holder is much easier to be absolutely sure it is weatherproof. I can offer the harness with a waterproof switch but I cannot guarantee the switch's reliability and the last thing I wanted to do was to introduce yet another piece of electronics into this chain that is not 100% reliable. After all, it is a switch failure that causes the problem in the first place so I do not believe adding another switch to the circuit is the best way to go (and either switch failing will cause a starting failure as they are in series and of opposite operation).

So here is the deal: the sub harness is exactly like an extension cord, you simply open the factory connector and place the new harness in-line. The sub harness has a pig tail that contains a fuse- should the activation switch fail or stick 'ON' as does occasionally happen, simply remove and reinsert the fuse and KiPass will activate (exactly as it does when you press down on the ignition key).

NOTE: you will still need a functioning fob to start the bike! This harness DOES NOT by pass KiPass, only the KiPass activation switch. This harness cannot be used to replace a lost / broken fob or steal a C-14. This by pass does address the only problem that KiPass has ever had, to the best of my knowledge, 100% of the time though and cannot fail to work around a stuck switch.

This product is made in the USA from the best components available. The connectors themselves are Japanese. Price is not yet determined but I will post it shortly. Price was not the object of this endeavor though, ultimate reliability and quality were.

A few photos:

And, of course, this product is fully endorsed by Kirby. In fact, it is the second generation of Kirby's KiPass Korrection Kit.

Whatcha makin Brian? A harness that plugs in between the two connectors under the left side that incorporates a switch?

Endorsed by Kirby? How can one go wrong, add my name to the list, dependant on pricing.

Dependent on pricing?  It can't be that much......can it?

I wouldn't think so but Kirby does need a new pair of shoes, so who knows?    :P

Is it possible to use the poll feature as a counter we can click so Brian has an accurate count on how many of these he might need ?

It's possible and it's a good idea.  Unfortunately, it wants two buttons instead of just one.  So go to voting but don't press the second button.

That, my friends, is a thing of beauty!

I still have a question for everyone that's ever had a KiPass issue. What model year do you have that failed? I wish everyone that posted that theirs stuck would start their post with that tidbit of info.

When did Kawasaki change to a stronger spring? Wondering if my '11 has the beefier one.
'14 BMW 1200 GSw (red, what little there is that's not grey)
'11 Concours ABS (black) w/ Leo Vince carbon, heated Corbin, Garmin; TechSpec pads (gone but not forgotten)
'05 Yamaha FZ6, only crashed once, gone in trade; '87 Honda Gold Wing Aspencade, sold; '85 Honda Magna (700), sold; '76 Kawasaki KZ400, sold
