I'm presuming you got the title, with the bike?

Yes, I have the title but haven’t switched it to my name yet. Just picked up the bike last night

You can reduce the cost of getting the key cut, if you can provide the lock smith the numbers off the end of the lock barrel. the seat and ignition should be keyed the same, so which ever one is easier to remove, you can get the number from.

alternatively, a Kawasaki dealer should be able to cut you that key; they will almost certainly need the code as well. Kawasaki's computer system may have that number on file -- better to have the number on file.

Depending on what a locksmith will charge you.............


You may be better off to simply buy a brand new complete lockset from Kawasaki.......... about $180
ignition, tank, seat locks all included


That fuel tank looks horrendous........... is it rusty inside too? you will need to clean that out well, or you will continue to have issues

I really hope you paid next to nothing for this bike, like.........well under 1k, as that is all it looks like it would be worth considering the state of disrepair and neglect

woohoo we are having fun now
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

I got a quote of $35 to $50 if I take the ignition to the locksmith. I can live with that. There is rust in the tank but it’s nothing I can’t take care of. I am going to clean it out, run the electrolysis process, and coat the inside with POR15. I have successfully restored tanks in the past using this procedure and this tank doesn’t look as bad as the others.

I got this bike for next to nothing! Paid $100 to rent a trailer and truck to pick it up. Bought a replacement fuel pump, throttle body setup with injectors, rearsets, and few few other bits. So far I’m in $450 total. My plan is to spend no more than $1000 total

likely easiest to simply remove the top triple clamp with it attached.........

otherwise security screws are installed and you will need to drill them out- which will require top triple removal anyways.......

unplug it from the connector!

i’ve been reading that the ignition key rules them all. I will just take the top triple key out and have a key made from the ignition. In the mean time, I’ll get the tank cleaned, clean out the rats nest and source a few more bits that the bike will need. It will be slow due to work but I think I’ll end up building a street fighter.

Quick update, doing electrolysis on the tank to get rid of the rust. Removed the airbox and found some chewed up wires, they are in the second picture. Any ideas on how to repair? Also removed the top triple tree to get a key made.

Also noticed that there are four separate injectors in the airbox. Didn’t know this bike had so many injectors, should I have to clean those out?
