I have searched and didnt find to much info. PLEASE help.
I only had one key when i bought the bike. I let my friend borrow the bike and he lost the key. I do own the bike and have the title. There is no silver tag with the key code. Bike is a 2006 ZX6.

PLEASE HELP
It is 1 am right now, so i will call the dealer tomorow but from what I read people say that the dealer will ask you to change all the parts and that they dont have record of the key code.

yes that is true. im a parts manager for a kawasaki dealership in ny and you will either have to replace all the locks or take out the ignition or fuel cap lock and bring it to a locksmith to see if he can cut you a key with either of them. better to use ignition lock though. if not the part # for a new lock set including ignition, gas lock and seat lock is 27045-5304 which supercedes to part # 27045-5336. the part is available through kawasaki and retails for $248.60 :sad: . DEALER COST is $149.16. or go on ebay and see if you can get a whole set. anything from
2005-2009 will work. its the same part # for those years. hope this helps a little. :cool:

i lost my key during mardi gras this year. I loaded my bike up with paperwork in hand & a locksmith had my bike started with a key made from scratch in about 20-30 mins. the fee was $50 for 2 keys.

I have a similar question. I just bought an 04 zx-10 from a friend. he gave me two keys but told me one of them wouldnt go in. it was bent just a little and i straightened it with pliers but still no go......I read on here somewhere something about a red master key that has the master code in it. my friend said he didnt get a red key. only the two grey ones that he gave me. I'd like to get another key since my second one wont go in the hole. any way i can do that easily since i have one good key? I didn't know they had the computer chip in them. I was about to buy a spare off of ebay but don't know the procedure to make it work and get it cut and all that....

Yes buy the blank off of fleabay, and take it to be cut at locksmith or stealership to match your good key

definitely not on the U.S. version. if im not mistaken the keys for 04-09 i think are all the same. have to check it out but definitely no chip.

Are you guys sure that its only the euro version? The owners manual is where i read it. It doesn't specify any certain model(us, european, etc). it shows the diagram for the parts and it shows the upper part of the switch as being the immobilizer antenna. looks identical to the switch on my bike. I think its on all of them....the chip is shown to be inside the plastic on the key, so the chip is not visible. This is the manual for the 04-05 zx-10 that i downloaded from this forum.

I've tried Walmart but the key they have there is slightly thicker than the Kaw key so it WILL NOT fit in the keyhole once you get it cut. I don't know who's charging you 15 dollars but I found this on Ebay for 6 dollars shipped.

But after you get the key you can have Walmart cut you the key which will cost you nothing. That's what I did with my R1 key, bought the blanks and had Walmart cut the key, works fine.

NONE of the U.S. 10Rs had an Imobilizer or a chip in the key.

Hi guys.
I have a 04/05 ZX10R and had to replace the immobilizer box. Have the original keys but need the box to be programmed to the keys. Is there a manual way to do it without having to take it to a dealership as our dealership does not have the cables and software to do the programming?
