You can usually get stabdardized keys for these. Look it up on ebay i can almost guarentee it will fit. I could modify a screwdriver to start my indy if i wanted too. As a matter of fact yamaha prob used all of the same keys in their sleds back in the 80's. And yes you do need a key but you can either disconect the wires and keep them seperate or touch them together (one will be off and the other will be on depending on how the system works) and try starting it!

unplug the connector for the switch and use the kill button until you either get a new key or new switch. unfortunately yamaha keys arent interchangable from sled to sled.

I thought they were. Our toro snowblower key fits in the keyhole of my sled no problem. That doesnt exactly mean i should use it.... Are yamaha ignitions in the 80s just 2 prong? Or was the estart in with the switch rather than on a button??
