Alright trying to work out some of the wiring, on big problem, some bonehead snatched the key switch so it's going to be tough to get power into this lifeless body

Yes smokin idea, and even my style, so being that they unplugged the hole thing what's the safest way to power up the CPU? I'm not above pilfering from other bikes

You will have to get power to 2-3 circuits in the switch cannon plug at the same time. Also there may be gear switch, kickstand switch, clutch switch etc. that will keep it from starting.

You really need a wiring diagram to make sure all the circuits are good and you don't unintentionally hurt something trying to hot wire it.

x 1000 Last thing you wanna do is hurry through a wiring project on this beast and have it cost you lots of money, as well as a headache

I suggest looking on ebay for a ignition switch set for it.. gives you ability to lock forks and have a key so not just anyone can jump on it and go.

Edit: I think I found one for ya

Ok got a service manual on the way, says it has a full, in color wiring diagram, that should be a big help, yes? I just want to hear this beast come to life

a multi-meter is an invaluable tool if you don't have one.
good luck and keep us posted

I have the meter covered, the harness has some damage but I'll have to see, some of it is just blinks that got ripped of, easy to rewire,

I might shop for one any way, the plug to the rectifier is kinda melted

re: rec/reg

i don't know if it's a gsxr problem but many of the interceptor boys experience reg/rec failure and plug melting.
you might want to google it to see if it's a gsxr problem for your year

Turns our this is true, but sounds like the fix is easy, just hard wire the rec/reg,

My next mission isn't so simple, I'm out to figure out how to hot wire this puppy, most are being pretty uncooperative so far, being that posting pictures from my phone can't be done on most forums, the answer I've been getting is "how do we know it's really yours?" well if they could see it they would probably be more free with the info

I'm glad I belong to WT! I just witnessed a bloodbath on gixxer.com, another member there had already asked hot to Hotwire a GSXR 600 and was almost cained to death, I understand the guys not wanting to answer that question, but this poor bastard got crusified! So I'll just wait for the manual an figure it out for myself minus the bloodshed

Jim, this is going to be as quick as I can go believe me I want to get this puppy road worthy ASAP, but my work week of 4/12's put a big damper on it, and I have other bikes to fix so I can fund my projects, I'll keep chipping away at it, you all will be the first to know when she takes her first breath...

So here's a "safe" question, my gauges/speedo/tac are gone, could the present any problems in starting?

Waiting on the manual is the best idea. You should also try and get the cluster set up so that you have some of indication that you are going in the right direction when you are applying power.

My 919, would not start up without gauges. At least I'm pretty sure. Without hotwiring something.

The plug for the gauges looks pretty intense(lots of wires) so I'm thinking that will have to be dealt with when the time comes

You need a 15 ohm resistor. Or it will not start. Just buy a used switch and key and b done with it. You dont want someone stealing your bike then suing you when they hurt themselves on it

Yes hard facts, I'm shopping right now.....I've found a few, I think most years will work as long as it has the 6 prong plug, I'm talking like '99-'05, please correct me if I'm wrong, I'd rather not buy the wrong one

is it me or does the key look bent on the one with the green plug. I'd say go for it, if it has the right style plug and isn't outrageously expensive.

Yes the key is bent, but it's only $25.00 with shipping, and it is compatible, yeehaa!!

Turns out the GIXXR doesn't need the gauge cluster to run, but is highly recommended

Ok got a key switch on the way, no hotwireing here, now I'm on the hunt for a fuel cap

What kind? And what parts do I need? The caps I'm looking at appear to be needing some sort of spacer to go under them

Would these work for head lights on my GIXXR?

If not, is there a wattage restriction? Just wondering, and these are dirt cheap

A little fancy foot work with the side grinder/tiger disc and the GIXXR is starting to bring sexy back!

I'll probably have to stop posting pics of it, otherwise PV and Goog will be wanting to hump the pipe!

Can someone recommend a top quality flat black spray paint that will stand up to gas spills???? the Stixxr will be flat black and polished aluminum

Oh yes Stixxr, it's not really a GIXXR anymore, streetfighter + GIXXR = STIXXR
