Anyone know how to hotwire a 98 fireblade?

Hi does anyone know how to hotwire a 98 fireblade?
if not can someone help me download a owners manual.

long story short, friends bike got jacked, police found her fairings and headlight stripped. The ignition got punched and the bikes been sitting for years. I need to hotwire her to see if the engine is ok then ill restore her.

Anything else i should do besides the basic flush out gas, oil, check sparks..?

thanx in advace

If it got stolen isn't it already hotwired?
There should be a wiring diagram somewhere on this site I would think.
If it's been sitting for years you'll need a lot more than that.
You'll need to rebuild the carbs and brake masters and calipers at least.
Are the fork tubes or shock shaft pitted? Is there rust in the tank? A mate of mine just bought a ZZR1100 that's been sitting for five years and there are dozens of holes rusted through the bottom of the tank.

Re: Anyone know how to hotwire a 98 fireblade?

the ignition got punched. I guess i could juss dig a screwdriver in there and do it again.

Yea it will definitly need to be looked over, but i want to see if the engine starts and runs ok before i invest more time and money into it. Since the bike was free might as well.

I own a daytona 675, and this is the first time working on a carb bike. Should be alot of fun, Gonna use the fireblade as my passanger bike and longer journey bike. Since it has a huge trunk and the daytona is insanely uncomfortable.

The manuals are already hosted all over the net.
It would be redundant to host them here when it's illegal to do so anyway.
Search Google or Torrents.

Re: Anyone know how to hotwire a 98 fireblade?

If it's anything like my old '03 and new '08, you can just short the two wires coming right off the ignition switch. They are usually wrapped in shiny black plastic. I've always been frustrated with how easy it is to hot-wire a bike in the U.S. where we don't have the coded keys like in Europe.

General Motors will be just fine as long as the Japenese don't ever learn how to build trucks.

Have you actually done this yourself?
The diode should prevent this from working.

I've never cut the wires to short them, but when the tank cover was up you can see where the wires terminate and I have shorted them there with a screwdriver and started the bike. I was shocked that it was so easy, and pissed.

Bladeracer, I thought you guys had those antitheft coded key systems from the factory over there in OZ like they have in Europe...

Your ignition must've been switched on at the time?
