There are different kind of TAGs available, including the small glass ampoule that can be put in a glove - or for the brave, implanted in your skin! (not for me!!!!)
All are programmable into the low-cost EBay RFID receiver that is linked in my post above.
I liked the watch-band style personally -

you can also even get real watches from EBay in Germany
The circuit posted in post # 87 is essentially the 'how to':
All you need is the RFID kit, three relays and a couple of diodes from RadioShack
But in fact if eliminating the key completely you can get it down to 2 relays since you no longer have a key-position parking light.
That revision is linked below.
You need to consider placement of the RFID controller and antenna - the antenna will read through plastic, not through metal!
And tag needs to be within about 2" so think about placement and test before you decide on final location.
The power relays should fit inside the headlight shell and is ideal location to connect onto the original main harness connector;
you can also pick up the Kill & clutch signals inside here also.
The easiest thing is to actually use your key-switch harness and connector if you don't mind cannibalizing it;
If you refer to the diagram above, using the wire colours on the key-switch harness: (EFI switch in parentheses)
1) Delete the third relay
2) For first relay connect Red/Yellow (or White) to 30 and Green (or Brown) to 87
3) For second relay, connect Red/White (or White/Green) to 30 and Orange (or White/Black) to 87
4) Connect the Brown (Red) & Gray (Blue) together.
Then tap onto the Green/Brown wire from the Main Harness side of right bar switch - PosiTap connector is ideal - and feed this via the diode to 86 of Relay 1. This is the output from Kill Switch and is used to set & drop the relay latch.
Also tap onto the Black/Pink (Black/Orange) wire of the Main Harness side of Left Bar Switch Connector - this is clutch switch and used to power the ground side of the RFID module.
(If not EFI, note that side-stand will also
required to be in raised position to enable power)
The RFID power and output are connected as shown - best to use a diode to isolate that signal also.
If using diode (or resistor) suppressed relays, the diodes across each relay coil may be eliminated - otherwise is good practice to add these.
To operate, you pull clutch lever to power up the RFID (note that on carb bikes, the side-stand will also have to be raised first);
then swipe the tag;
If the Kill switch is set to Run, the ignition will latch on.
When Kill is set to Kill, it will drop the latch. (and require a subsequent swipe of tag to re-enable)
This is what it looks like with above revisions:
