I was wondering, is there any kind of kill switch that i could install on the wr so you have to have a remote to start it? Since i will somtimes be leaving it in the parking lot. :applause:

I just installed a key switch on mine, but i still wont feel comfortable with it in a parking lot without a chain around it. Even then... if a thief wants it, they will cut the lock. My buddy just had his R1 stolen in the middle of the day, with 2 chains on it.

Yeah, i will even take pictures because i'm so geeked about my little bracket i made LOL. I will have to post the pic tomorrow.

Here's a link to the exact key switch i used... there's many more like it too (i used "yamaha key switch" in the search field). It even comes with 2 keys!

Here's a pic of my key installed.

It's on the side of my US 2004, because i did not remove or relocate the factory push-button ON/OFF/LED.

So you have both the ignition and the on/off switch wired in? How did you accomplish that?

Do you always carry both keys on the ring? :applause:

Bracket is aluminum (we have a Bridgeport mill here at the shop), the switch is wired in series with the original ON/OFF push button switch, and no, i just got the key switch mounted and havent taken the spare off :applause:

I too removed the factory power switch and put on a factory ignition from a dual purpose bike, came with nut, cover, ignition and 2 keys (i took my spare off too) and just swapped position and connectors, works great, i don't know if it will keep someone from stealing it but it's a start.0cbf1018.jpg
