Spoken to endless amounts of locksmiths. They are all saying they cant cut a key and I'll need to replace the ignition.
Seems pointless having a key code really.

I would start complaining to kawasaki if you can't find a locksmith in your area that can cut the key. You shouldn't have to fork out for a new ignition - kawasaki should make sure that there are locksmiths in all major areas that can cut their keys and have access to all the latest codes.

but looks like cruizin's on the ball

Wow Cruizin! The kindness of strangers :goodjob:

Im going to get in contact with Kawasaki again tomorrow and start stomping my foot...if you feel the earth tremble you know why! lol

Otherwise I'll get in contact with your suggested locksmith and go from there. Super kind of your offer to get them cut for me.

Will buy you a beer if/when Im ever up your way :smile:

Cheers

Travvy - what an awesome part of the country you live in to be riding on 2 wheels. Had a holiday up at Port D last year...the only thing that was missing was my black boyfriend. Plan on getting back up there with my wheels one day soon.

Great job, mate! After this, I'm definitely cutting a spare key while I still have mine to save myself the grief that BB has to go through...

no dramas. and you never know i might end up moving to your neck of the woods in the near future, there is a strong possibility of that so you can buy me a beer then.

Riding up to port on the bike is great. So much fun, and the other ranges are good as well, if you come up, I'll come for a ride

Ok guys...I'm back for some more advice. Seems I have to take out one of the locks and take it to the locksmith. I'm guessing that the pillion seat lock will be the easiest to remove. Any tips for making this as easy as possible?

i agree, it would be the easiest, however, i dont know how your going to remove the back seat to remove it from the inside of the bike with no keys to begin with


mmmmmmmmmmmmm..... unless you shine a bright torch and press the rear seat upwards a little you might be able to get a coat hanger, a small steel one in there and push the lever to the side that locks the front of the seat, one you release it the seat will come off

There is a flipping god after all!

Just as the mobile locksmith was about to arrive and take my $300.00...guess what? Yeap I found the key :eusa_clap:

Thanks to a little bit of sunlight shining in the right place I found the key sitting on the engine behind the front fairing!!

One hell of a happy chick here, reunited with my black boyfriend once again! Woot!!

Thanks for your help cruizin and yeap - spare key is already cut.

It's a damn good thing you found your key too. Would hate to think what would have happened if that key slid into the wrong place while you were off riding. We've had some humorous stuff found in front tires on this forum but your prior ignition key would have been the champ on that one. :D

Grats on finding your key. Also it sounds like maybe you Aussies should get together for a group ride eh?

great idea, distance is the killer, just about all of the Aussies who replied in the thread thus far are about 3000 kilometers or so from the O/P

Ohh trust...there was a whole lot of shaking, rocking and rolling going on. At one stage I almost dropped the black friend on his side trying to rattle that bloody key out. Perfectly balanced - the key that is!
