Gen4 key duplicate/replacement

I've searched can't find accurate answer. I have one key... It has a slight rotational bend to it from the stubborn gas tank lock. And requires and special shimmy to get both the ignition and gas tank to unlock.

Do I need to buy a genuine Kawasaki black key? Does a Kawasaki dealer need to cut it.?
As cheesy as it would be why can't I go to Ace hardware and have a key made to match? Thanks guys

Just order the Chinese blanks on ebay and have any place that can cut the key do it. I have like 5 keys for all my Kawis. The ace hardware in town sometimes doesn't charge me and other times it's only 2.00

My dealer cut me a new key for a great price. I suspected that the 4th gen might have an immobilizer and was expecting a huge bill due but it wasn't much more than getting a new house key made. I was a real happy camper after that one. I guess our bikes don't have immobilizers?

In Europe all gens have the immobilizer. Helps a little bit with insurance.

I wanna know the difference between the 5$ for 3 blanks. Or a legitimate looking factory key for 18$
