lost keys

I think my 2 year old son may have gotten hold of the key for my bike. I have looked everywhere.

I have searched this subject and I am getting conflicting answers. So I am asking specifically for the zx7r can I get a key made by the dealer from just my VIN number or do I need to have a locksmith make a key from scratch?

they should be able to cut you a key as long as your bike has never been rekeyed.

locksmith might still be cheaper though

I need help too, recently lost my keys for a 1995 zx7. I dont know how much a locksmith would charge but my question is, would the ignition switch and gas cap from a 96 to 03 fit the 1995 model?

I bought a ex250 with no key. The dealership way be able to get a key from the vin. But honestly most likely not since kawasaki dosent keep those records for to many years. A decent locksmith is gonna charge you at least 100 bucks. What i did was pull the ignition out and got the key code gave to kawasaki and they cut me a key with the four digit code for like 40 bucks. To pull the ignition is cake walk. Need a small chisel and hammer. Got to cut groves in the safety nuts on the bottum of the ignition and un screw takes some time but worth it.

You also might want to look into a salvaged ignition and just swap the whole thing out. Good luck.

A new ignition for our bikes isn't very expensive at all, and it comes with a couple spare keys. Your only real problem is the gas cap as you could bypass the ignition with a hidden toggle switch until your little man decides to give up the keys. SSR makes an awesome gas cap for our bikes too off ebay. I would just bypass it until he gives them up. Hope that helps!

turns out the kawi dealer near me cannot make a key from the vin. They told me it would be cheaper to go the locksmith route. They recommended a guy who has had luck with bikes and he quoted me $100 if I bring the bike to him. What a way to spend $100.

Its long time now to post here, but yeah Locksmith will be cheaper in such cases because they make the duplicate of the key at low price and the dealer charge for it much more.
