1. Start by prying the metal ignition cap where the key would usually go off to get to the wires. 2. Twist the battery and ignition wires together to complete the connection and send power from the battery to the motorcycle's ignition. Alternate Method 1. You can clip the wires on the bottom of the ignition. Only clip the red wire and the solid green wire. If there is no green wire, look for a solid yellow or black wire. Various colors are used to prevent non-professional tampering. The battery is always red and green, yellow, and black are the ground/ignition wires. Only clip the previously mentioned wires and leave the other wires alone, especially any "stripped" wires!

Hotwiring a car other than one you own is a criminal offence and for newer models may not even work. These days manufacturers often hide the components or wires and include cut-off switches - which means the engine won't start even with a key. It may also require a chipped key (hint: if there's an RFID (radio-frequency identification) chip in it stick it to the steering column before trying the following). But for older models you're good to go. If you find yourself stranded in a hostile environment like a desert or suburban housing estate you won't give a damn that it makes you look like a car thief.
Be warned: the following techniques could cause electric shocks or serious damage to the engine, internal components and your car. Use with caution.

Screwdriver in the Ignition

Take a flat-head screwdriver and use it in place of a key. Simply insert into the keyhole and turn. It's not the most flash way to do it but it'll save you a whole lot of trouble. If it doesn't work don't worry, you can use the screwdriver for the next solution.

The Old-Fashioned Way

Right, make sure you're in neutral then get yourself under the steering column and remove the ignition cover - sometimes clipped on, sometimes screwed on. Typically you'll now see three pairs of wires. Each one corresponds to one turn on the ignition key so the first is the battery-on position, next lights, radio and electrics and the final one the starter motor.
Unfortunately there's no standard colour-coding system for these wires so you'll need to look in the manual to find out which pair is which. However if you've lost it or there's a bunch of hoodies banging on the window you could try the following.
Find the matching power wires, usually red. Disconnect them, strip the ends and reconnect by twisting them together. Bingo: the dash should light up. Do not touch them to anything metal in the car.
Now locate the starter wire or wires, often brown. WARNING: Do not touch the bare ends of these wires: they carry live current and you may be electrocuted. Now that you know this and have taken full responsibility for whatever happens next, strip the ends of these wires and cross the brown and red together. Just like the desperate hero in the movies. You should see a spark and the engine should start. Once the car is running, separate the live wires and cover the bare ends to protect yourself while driving.
Give the car a few revs to prevent it stalling and your having to repeat this procedure. Now put your foot down and get the hell out of Dodge.
Motorbikes are even easier. Just take the ignition cover off and twist the battery and ignition wires together (check the manual to find out the exact specs for your machine or opt for red and green if you're in a jam). Now start the motor and drive like the devil himself was chasing you.
You never know when disaster will strike, so here's how to do it when you're stuck in a desert.

This has been asked before, the link is below. The answer doesn't say how to hotwire it, but provides hints on how to replace the key. A modern bike is probably pretty hard to hotwire.

How do i start my scooter with no key and no kickstart


No key?
You would need to hotwire the ignition. If you got caught with a hotwired bike the cops would start to ask hard questions.

No Kick start?
If it has a manual clutch you can turn the ignition on put it into second gear run push the bike up to running speed jump on it and release the clutch quickly to engage the engine.If its a centrifugal clutch (twist and go!) you cant bump start it.

But reading your question, I would ask whether you scooter is road worthy. Running and jumping on a moving bike with live electrical cables hanging out of it in a fuel rich environment is probably not a good idea!

I lost my key to 01 gsxr600 and need to know how to hotwire my bike


Well you can just cut the wires to the ignition switch and intall a toggle switch. However, you will need a schematic to know how to attach the wires to the new switch.

Lost key to bke how do i start it by hot wiring it


There is no hotwire procedure. If you have your code card, you can program new keys with it or even start the bike using the code and a mechanical key. Buy a new cluster and lock set or have keys reprprogrammed by a service like keysforducati.com.
