hi there, just bought a 2001 zx6r,
im struggling getting the key to turn the ignition,
question is, if i get a new lock set with keys would i have to get it programed to the cpu,
im guessing its just a straight swap over,
Just spray wd 40 in the hole and on the key and turn it off and on a few times...clean the key really good spray it again and do it again! Should be butter after that, I do it to all my locks. As for your question it doesn't not matter the ignition is just hooked up to the wire harness
Yup to the above. I don't believe they were using programmed keys in 01, yet. You should be good to just replace it. But I would definitely spend a little time trying to unfreeze the original. Good luck.
