Question about 2001 Suzuki GSX-R 600
I lost my keys to my bike and would like to know how to just hotwire my bike instead of paying all the money to buy a new ignition for it
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.

It's unlikely, despite all the 'reports' of people having keys cut from numbers or dealers looking up the original key cut, etc. Talk to any REAL locksmith, they'll tell you. In the end, if you have any other lock off the bike that you can TAKE into a good lock shop, they can make a key from that lock for likely under $50. Like, an accessory or helmet lock. Taking it to a smith will SAVE you $$$. If you have a smith COME to you, figure $100-300!!!
Sure, some folks have had it done for free, or only $5, or only $10, and the stories go on and on--if you're brother in law is a locksmith, take it to him, or whatever--a real locksmith is a professional who's got to make a living--they charge reasonable rates.
That said and done, I recently had to do something EXACTLY like this, but I'm too cheap to afford the $50 for a smith to do. I bought a blank key for my motorcycle type: $2.
I bought a needle file set from Harbor Freight, on-sale: $1.99
I removed one of my trunk locks (Goldwing, full dress), and figured out how the 5 tumbler lock works, and I filed a key down with tiny files to open this lock. It took 20 minutes, I was patient and methodical. When I went back to my bike to try the key, my new key was smoother than my OLD key. Since the trunk locks don't get as much use as the ignition, my 30 year old ingition lock was a bit sloppy, and the original key, a bit worn. A sharp, cut key from a tight trunk lock worked out NICELY for me.
Maybe I was lucky, maybe you can be too. It's all about what you want to afford, and how much effort you want to put into it. I had a lot more time than money when I did this--it paid off.

Take the ignition lock out and have a locksmith make a new key for it. If the ignition key also unlocks another part of the bike (e.g. a helmet lock or security lock) it's often easier to remove one of those. I'm assuming you don't have this problem as a consequence of stealing the bike ;-)?

Just take you registration down to your dealer, and they will cut a key using the VIN to determine key code. Hope this helps.
