Removing Ignition Key

I have a 2007 Gsxr 750 and it's a track only bike. I wanted to replace the itnition key with just a switch. Does anyone have any experience with this? I would like to remove the 'horn/turn signal' etc cluster from the left handle bar as well but it appears that there are some wires that are critical. is anyone experienced with this?

Thanks!

House of paint does it for $75 you have to wire in a transistor.

I dont believe the horn / turn wires are critical, you just unplug them.

On my 07 the horn/turn wires definitely aren't "critical". Bought it all tracked-out, and I got the LH controls in a box with the bike. It has Woodcraft clip-ons. L side is just a very thin grip and the clutch lever assembly. Clutch sensor connection is necessary, as far as I can tell, but I've been thinking about bypassing this as well.

Thanks! I will call them and get a quote.

One more question: Does CMRA regulations require a key Ignition or would a switch do?

no, key ignition is not required - a switch will work. some wire the kill switch to switch the battery and ignition on/off.

That's how I wired mine. Not hard just need to be able to use a multimeter.

I called up House of Paint and they gave a decent estimate. I didn't ask if they give any discounts to MotoHouston but they were very reasonable.

Before them I called Houston Superbike store (off of I-69) and they quoted me close to $500!!! I almost my pants when I heard that...
