New anti-theft method
Take a look at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S0bhZtc3mlA

See his anti-theft device? he talks about it throughout the movie and tells how it works.

I'm really going to look into doing this. I looked at the Kat and it has a good chunk of wire coming from the key ignition, so it'd hook up easily. Anyone have any thoughts on it?

Interesting. He should get a patent on that and develop a cleaner version.

I was thinking I could just get 4 adapters, 2 female and 2 male. Cut the wire twice and place a M-F connections on both ends like he did, and add a locking device so it wont come off if something pulls on it.


/me plans to go to NAPA and Radio shack

These would be my choice.

That could work, any idea what wire guage the key ignition has?

the gix ignitions are exactly the same as that.... which is even easier to hot wire

That's old school.. A multi pin connector as a key? I think JC Whitney used to sell them. I used to hide a little switch that disabled the FI relay in my cars. Car would crank and work fine but just not start.

Try this instead:

Hit the kill switch to shut the bike and walk away; the system arms itself. Who needs keys!

A simply toggle switch as a kill-switch under the seat would work as well as removing that wiring, and would mean two locks to have to defeat (the ignition and the seat lock).

Very true cyber. I was thinking about that as I was leaving my auto store and learned they didn't have anything for the original method I was talking about. What kind of toggle switch would work, a through-switch (where the wire goes straight through the tube, but is split in the center and is controlled via a throw switch/tightening connection)??
