2004 Kawasaki Zx10R

I bought an 04 zx10r from auction with no key and am having trouble removing the ignition column. I have a cbr 600rr which I removed the ignition column before and was easy - so I thought I'd be same situation here. Boy am I wrong!

I was wondering if this was the only way to retrieve the key code for the bike to produce a new key - or if there were other ways? I called Kawasaki and they looked up my VIN and said it was not possible for my year as I heard somewhere online it was possible to retrieve a key from a VIN.

Can you guys kindly provide some suggestions on what to do next, or if there's possibly a video that shows how to remove ignition column?

Thanks in advance for your help!

From my understanding, you have to take your title to the dealership to order a key.

Can you not just order a new ignition?
I put a new one in my 03 zx9 as the current one was sticking and looked like shit, was 125 bucks from Kawi.

Think about it this way, if they would give you a key by just providing the VIN for a bike, think about how easy that would make it to steal a bike. Thats why i have heard you actually have to take the title to a dealership to order one.
