In the event you lose your keys, you will need the key number to have a duplicate made. If you cannot locate your key number, contact the dealer where you purchased your Kawasaki motorcycle.

It’s possible the dealermay have the number in its records. If the key number is lost completely, you will need to replace the ignition switch and all other locks operated by that key.

Contact your Kawasaki dealer to purchase additional spare keys either using your original key as a master or using the key code on the tag or your key.

Store one key at home and keep another spare in your wallet or riding gear, in case the original is lost.
