Default Does anyone know how to hotwire my bike?? ZX6R

Basically, someone tried to pinch my bike the other night, I have a smashed barrel, but really need to use the thing in the mean time, there are 5 wires in the loom leading to the ignition...

Any help would be great.

No offense Cookstar, but why would anyone give advice on how to hot wire a bike on an open Internet forum?

It should be obvious that this information will be available to anyone who might want to hot wire a similar bike.

Any decent manual should have a wiring diagram.

Hmm, I reckon a thief might already know how to do it, are are you suggesting that your average SNET reader will get hold of this thread then decide to TWOC the first bike in sight.

If the bike is later than around 1998 you will not be able to hot wire it, Kawasaki desingned the wiring so it could not be hot wired so dont bother to try.
Sorry to be an **** but for obvious reasons I cant tell you what to do but, but get it to a Kawasaki dealer

Luckily the alarm prevented the thief getting any further, I have the luxury of an alarm fob to diasble it.

Anyway I have recieved PMs now so lets just forget it.

Thanks mate, looks like I may have had a result on the bay of E, the whole kit for 75 including all three locks, so wont need to have two keys.

The notion that a 'bike thief' would learn how to hotwire a bike off this forum is beyond laughable.

Cookstar; at its most simple youll need to join a thin + and - to make the ignition live and then briefly touch a thick + and - to operate the starter. Any remaining thin wires are likely to be 'accessory' connections, but who knows: apart from bike thieves...?

I wouldnt entertain this without a multimeter as you can do all sorts of ihnition system damage by joining the wrong wires together.

lol, I know mate, i did have a chuckle at some comments, but decided to give up on it.

I am leaving the wiring as it is now tbh, as I should have the whole set her in the next couple of days to change it properly.

It's just taking me an extra hour to get home in her car now though.

Probably for the best though:

If plod happens to pull you with the ignition barrel or wiring obviously messed up, they are going to ask alot of questions. And getting home will take alot longer than in the car if that happened.


Happened to me when I was still a yoof. Some ****** tried to nick my Escort, and failed (electronic immobilser). I did a quick fix repair to get it up and running, so was driving about for a while with steering cowl missing, steering lock broke and an some random wires hanging down (they tried to bridge the immobilser, thus making a bit of a mess).

Anyhoo, I got pulled (was already parked at the roadside, but hey-ho ). They took one look inside the car, and saw the state of the steering column and thought "stolen car". So from that point onwards I was nicked for steeling my own car.

That is after the reg report came through saying the car was in my name and I had enough ID on me to prove who I was. And then they still thought I was dodgy, so did a drug search on me and the car.

Moral of the story: Don't leave any dangly bits under the steering column

If that's a pub in the Romford/Hornchurch area, then I have no idea who this Cookie fellow is.

I guess it is laughable with the info on Google. I apologies for my naivety Cookstar

Still, this and disabling alarms are a big no-no on all the bike forums I use.

Guess you've got it sorted anyway

does anyone know how to hotwire my bike - Google Search
