I have a doubt, when the KIPASS problem is present and you bypass the system by removing and reintalling the fuse in this kit this will free up the ignition to be able to turn the stove  knob and unlock the steering?

If your fob is in range and you remove the fuse and reinsert it, you will have a few seconds to press in the stove knob key. I'm not sure that it's 5 seconds though. Just be ready to press the key down as soon as you put the fuse back in.

If the KiPass activation switch is stuck down, which is the only KiPass problem I have ever heard of, then yes, when you remove and reinsert the fuse the LCD display with illuminate and the usual start up sequence will begin. The key will turn as usual after you press the key down, and then the LCD will illuminate in the usual starting process.

The first and second batches of harness are gone but I do have some in stock at the moment. If anyone is interested in one of these, shoot me an e-mail (my e-mail address is on the left side of this page under my icon).

I would guess ( not having installed mine yet) that you could take the FOB far away like it was dead and use the bypass to get her running...

PS received mine today lightening fast shipping. Thanks

After installing my bypass today ( almost gave up trying to seperate the original connecter) I came up wth another possble use for it and One that I will probably use often. By pulling the fuse my 21 and 25 year old sons won't be borrowing the bike without me agreeing. I just hope that I remember when the fuse is out.   ::)

Now that is an interesting and good idea. Yep, without that fuse in place no one is going to start the bike or even get anything to happen at all (no display, no relay clicks, nothing). And it is easy enough to insert / remove that you could do it everyday and really not get sick of it.

Yes those connectors are hard to separate but they are also absolutely waterproof and vibration proof. I think it is better that they be that way as they spend virtually all of the time just sitting there; if they were easier to remove at the expense of reliability I think it would be a poor trade- off.

Thanks for the kind words. Most of the shipping speed is courtesy of the USPS.  ;)

The bypass only bypasses the activation switch, there is no practical (read: financially viable) way to bypass KiPass itself. The bike still needs a valid fob w/in range, either through the RF portion and a few feet away or by using the RFID portion which is inside the ignition switch housing. The bypass harness cannot be used to start any C-14 without a valid fob in range so it could not be used, for example, to steal a C-14 or start one that had already been stolen. Not to suggest anyone bought one for that purpose of course, I am merely pointing out that there is absolutely no risk that my bypass can be used in any illicit way on anyone's C-14.

 Thanks Brian for making this by-pass available.
 Mine arrived and I installed it within a short time, thanks to your thorough instructions.
 I hope I never have to use it on my 2011 Black Concourse.

Sent an e-mail... definitely want one.  Nice solution to a potetially VERY big problem.  KIPASS adds no convenience or value, yet creates a huge single point of failure.  <shakes head>.
