Is this for a bike that you stole? :surprise:
I believe you have to drill out the security bolts for the old ignition. The new ignition should come with standard bolts.
BTW, a kit (on eBay for instance) also includes the tank cap, and the rear cowl lock.

No it's not stolen lol my co-worker bought it at an Auction in 2015 as a project and never got around to doing any work. It had no keys so he bought a new ignition.

I also have no key for the gas tank so if u have any idea on how to get in there that would help. I need to eventually replace the tank as it's dented but before I invest in parts want to make sure the engine is sound.

Aside from this I need front forks. Fairing, tachometer and headlight assembly.

I'm from Toronto Canada and I don't know where to source used parts

Cool.
If I were to attempt this, I might get some cheap lock-set off eBay, like this:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ignition-Switch-Seat-Gas-Cap-Cover-Lock-Key-Set-For-Kawasaki-EX250-Ninja-EX300/232631802420
(You will need to make sure it fits YOUR bike, I just quickly searched without verifying fit)


That should include everything you need and be able to use one key for everything.


Someone here should PM you the service manual, which should explain how to remove the ignition, the gas cap, and the cowl lock.
It's not that hard to do.


AFAIK, the ignition has two tamper resistant bolts that will need their heads drilled out (from behind).
My guess is, it is similar (or identical) to this:

Service Manual

Did anyone ever post the Ninja 300 service manual?
I would like to know the diameter for the security bolts on the ignition.
I too am not attempting to steal a motorcycle. Some idiot attempted to steal my motorcycle but was only able to ruin my ignition switch.
Ive purchased a replacement kit from amazon.
Any help would be appreciated.

Be prepared for some issues with an aftermarket ignition switch.

I forget the exact details, but there may be a resistor required in order to make it work properly (read - start).

There should be some info here or at Ninjette about it.

There is a resister required that is inside oem switch which is 100 ohm and some aftermarket ignition switches don't have it, of the 5:wires on main loom, the skinny grey one that goes back to ECU must have it inline.

How would I fix a loose ignition on a 300 I bought recently? Its rattling on the stem like someone tried drilling the bolts out unsuccessfully, almost making the act of inserting the key into something not so sturdy undesirable. I want it to be like the factory intended. Any suggestions could go a long way.
