Eliminate the key switch (track bike)

Hi all, I am wanting to remove the key switch from my 848 track bike, will I have any issues with the immobilizer if I do? It has the Termigioni race ECU Installed, but after some searches on here, I couldn't find a definitive answer. I would be using the Woodcraft eliminator harness do accomplish this.

Thanks in advance!

You can take the chip out of your key and epoxy it to the immobilizer antenna ring. Otherwise you could have your ECU reflashed so it doesn't require the immo. The key switch eliminator will only eliminate the key switch (duh?, I realized how dumb that sounded while typing it!)

you can also zip tie or safety sire the key to your immobilizer, I think Woodcraft tells you this in their instructions.
