Keyed Ignition for 06 WR450
Posted May 09, 2006 - 09:25 AM
What are folks using for a keyed igntion mod? Model and part numbers would be really appreciated. Pics too if you got'em though I imagine it would be an easy installation with the right parts.
Like those from the Aussie dual sport models.

If you don't want turn signals, horn etc. you have to take it off.
It has been this way since -05, on the previous models you could buy a factory DS kit...it was about 375$ + labor.
I mounted my kit by myself, it came in a box. The clever thing is that it contained a new wiringharness that connects to the existing one.
Once installed it is "plug'n play" with the horn, turn signals, brake switch etc.
This makes me think that if there is an Australian version of this kit containing a key switch it should be possible to find that part separately.
So come on you Aussies....show us some good pictures of this key switch.
i would love to see some stampings (if any) and how it connects to the wiring harness.

I have a keyed ignition that looks almost identical to this one on the Yamaha-usa site. It is for a 2006 TTR125EV/LE/LEV
Part Number: 5HP-82510-00-00
Go to the Parts Catalogue and search under Electrical 1. Item No. 16/17 I think. It looks identical except I may have a slightly different bracket (I think) to hold it to the top fork clamp.
Here is a pic of mine before I modded it for a Neutral light.
I posted some time ago and unfortunately the dealer could not get the details. My bike came fitted with the keyed ignition and some turn lights. It did come in a kit, they ordered direct from Japan. Cost around 500US - installed on the bike and was a dealer add-on necessary for them to register the bike for road use. I'd say you could half the price if you exclude labour..? No part number though.
For those of you just wanting the keyed ignition, LOOK at the USA site and go buy!

No excuses now guys.
Now, who is the first to solve the REV counter (who wants one?) issue. Just kidding...

had a conversation with a very helpfull technician at Yamaha UK today, he said look for a keyed switch from an ATV something like 350Big Bear '95 '96 or aKodiak 400 '95 '96 for this type of add on ( red wire = permanent live and brown wire = switch live)
That is the wiring for my keyed ignition - spliced into what was left of the Push Button ignition I am guessing. There is NO AC through the 06 push Button Ignition switch.
For Info: the Yamaha-usa parts catalogue for the Yamaha ATVs and TTRs etc that DO have a keyed ignition, shows the same ignition part number for all; previously posted on this thread.
