2008 Zx10 question

I picked up a wrecked 2008 zx10 for a $100, advantage of knowing a tow lot owner, and I had a few ?'s. The front end was ripped off the bike so I do not have windscreen, fairings, headlights, instrument cluster. It actually ripped some of the front wiring off the bike, also missing. It damaged the ram air induction port (the part sticking out from the front of the frame that is molded in to it). The ignition and wiring to it were also damaged with the wiring ripped off of it. Other then the ram air port on the front of the frame, the rest of the frame is fine. The forks are straight and the swing arm is fine. Both tail and seat sub frame are damaged. My questions are:
1. Where can I get a manual/wiring diagram for it so I can buy a new harness to replace it?
2. I currently do not have a key (ignition is damaged anyway) so until I get the new wiring and ignition how can I try and start it to check how well it runs (it ran perfect until crash)?
3. Does anyone know of or have any ideas were to find used parts so I can at least get it back on the road?

I have checked all over the net and have not been able to find much information............Thanx in advanced for any help.

I cannot help you with the first two problems, but as far as the third you can just type used motorcycle parts into yahoo or google. Not sure where your from but there is probably a pretty hefty salvage yard near you. Alot of scrap sites will ship parts to you. One site you could try is usedmotorcycleparts.net you can request any parts you need and they will go looking for you.

Try also finding a ZX10 parts bike. These large cruisers have a lot of electronics involved in the front end. You can order a manual from Kawasaki but wiring diagrams are very intricate, so I suggest seeking out a parts bike.

Good Luck,
Vinnie
