Keyless ignition?

I was wondering if anyone here knows where I can get a setup, or if there is a company that makes a kit or do I have to rig one up.

I use my RR for the track only and I am getting tired of dealing with the key.

Any help would be appreciated.

IMO just stick with the key man. What if you have to leave your bike somewhere? or on a trailer? How big of a pain is it really to just leave your key in there and turning it to the right 1 click when your ready to start the bike?

That said, I am sure a slight knowledge in 12v systems and a few parts from a electronics hobby shop would do the job for you.

Well, I have a damper that goes under the triple clamp and the ignition cylinder does not fit. I have to rig it up all weird.

I just rather be rid of it if I can. If not, then fukit. I will leave it.

Funny you say that, my key broke off on Monday at TWS (Texas World Speedway) in the gas tank, was done for the day with 2 or 3 sessions to go.

I am getting twist off gas cap also.

orielly's or any auto parts store sells ignition " push buttons "

just wire it in through the proper places.



did that on my old F3, had the starter button hidden under the seat.

All you need is a switch to close the ignition circuit and a button for the starter. All that can be put under the seat for security and you can kill it with the stop button. The start button is already built into the r/s handle housing.

our endurance bike has an on/off switch. simply turn it on and hit the electric start. most turnkey race bieks have these. I am sure one of the racers can chime in on how this is done. Lieks like a 20 dollar part for the on off switch

The easiest way I've figured out how to do this is to tie the ignition on wire to the hot side of the kill switch. I haven't done it yet on the current bike, but its not that hard.

WHY does it have to be made for racers? I would think radio shack would carry a toggle switch.

That really doesn't sound like a bad idea. I might be doing that when I get my bike back from Motorcycles Unlimited.

I was looking into switching my bike to keyless the other day, when I saw another bike set up that way. After thinking about it, I am horrible with my keys, and would hate to lose my key to the track bike the morning of a track day (its almost happened a couple of times).

Yep... forgot about that one...


Point proven. I dont need a key. I will end up losing it again. Thankfully that time I remembered where I left it.

It only caused me to miss the whole session

Just figured since there are people that race here, someone would know about some kind of kit or something. And like I stated, I am really surprised that no one makes a product like this. You would imagine that it would be a viable product like screw on gas caps, thats another thing a thief would like, I guess.

Kinda like taking off the kick stand and light switches and anything not necessary on a track bike.

I agree with just about everything you said, except for the kickstand part..... There have been countless times I wish I had that thing there.

Even for just those few seconds when I pull in from the track to put it down while I get my rear stand....
