Have not had to do this in a long time, but there are wires coming off the ingnition switch, and you just connect two of them. Your ignition will be on all the time however, so don't plan any long rest periods without disconnecting the wires. You will have to kill it with the kill switch.

(To test the theory, I would just cut a tiny bit of insulation off of the wires, and touch them together and see when the neutral light comes on.)

Not for sure on your quad but I have lost keys to my H.D. and a couple of trucks and were able to get replacement keys with the VIN numbers. Worth a try.

Well I went to the trailer i stay at for lunch today. I work 14 and 14 as a mechanic for ERA helicopters. And there was a locksmith there making extra keys because they lost some of the keys to the trailers. So I took out the ignition and their gonna make me two keys for $25. How convenient is that. I bring my 400 with me sometimes so i can ride in the afternoonswhen im off
