i recently lost my key for my 99 zr 600, i was wondering if i could just unplug the ignition and buy a new with a key and use that. i would just unplug the ignition and use the kill switch but i dont got one on mine because the previous owner took it off for a safety bypass

Open Ignition: Newer style ignition including the 1998 and newer ZR’s and ZL’s
A "normally open" ignition system. With this system a live wire goes from the ignition system to all of the switches. The switches are normally open, or not making connection, until in the "OFF" position. When in the "OFF" position the switch will ground the ignition wire to the chassis effectively "grounding out" the ignition system killing the spark. If a connecter becomes disconnected or if a wire gets cut then the switch will no longer turn off the engine. With the "normally closed" system if a connector comes loose or a wire gets cut the spark will stop until the wiring is repaired completing the circuit again.

this one?
