Lost Key

Went to the dealer with the code to my lost key. Apparently Kawasaki doesn't cut keys from the key code anymore? Has anyone else lost their key and what did you do?

Thats news to me. I was told by a dealer near me two weeks ago that they will cut keys using the code. Try contacting someone else i guess. Good luck...

My dealership told me the same thing. I assume it's because they're retarded. Your MOM says SPECIFICALLY that you should write down your key code in case you lose the key so you can order a replacement. I would call Kawi customer support and see what they have to say.

I took the code, make & model to a local locksmith and they cut a new key for under $10. Again after the dealer could/would not help.

If you could get me the address of that dealer I'd gladly pay the shipping costs that it might involve.

I believe my dealer used my VIN to get the key# on line. They bent me over for a $20
