Thanks for the post. I broke my only key in the tank lock to my 95 Police1000 yesterday and this info was very useful. A local locksmith was able to help make a new one and it was a whopping fifteen bucks. As luck would have it I was able to get the broken piece out without causing damage.

I sent a message to the OP (rstnick) regarding getting some keys made up for my 1980 Kawasaki 750 LTD. Does anyone know if he is still around and can still do this? If not, can someone else point me in the right direction? Thanks all.

Hey Rob,

Got the key today that you made for me...it works perfectly! Thanks so much...I was stuck with only a very poor copy that hardly worked as my only key. Awesome work!

i had to have a locksmith cut me a new key this past weekend by code since the original key i was using was all fucked up by the last owner and it couldnt even be put in the clamp to be manually cut. it looked like they beat the damn thing up with a chisel. it costed me 20 bucks to have it done.

I've had a couple of basket case bikes that came with no keys.
Took the tumbler apart and ebay searched the whatever numbers I found.
I've found keys for everything I looked for. Last one as an 81 yam xs850.
6.00 to my door, FWIW, you might try that if you know the key #
I read somewhere they only made so many different combo's

oh the fun continues.....the first three locksmiths that I called, they dont do motorcycle keys, the fourth one looked up the numbers on the bottom of the lock for me over the phone and said it could be one of three different cuts, and he wasn't sure if the key it listed would even work on that old of a motorcycle. the number he looked up was Z5353. He said to bring in the lock and they could maybe figure out which key went to it.

In the Z series keys, the Program we have only has two options, Old & New.
Can't remember the cut off year off hand, but for the KZ's it will fall into the Old series.
I can look up the code # Monday or Tuesday, and confirm the cuts.
I will PM you information then.

I rode all last year with one original key , the closest Kaw shop 35 miles away said that they would need me to bring the bike in to make sure that their plain Jane key would fit before they could make a copy and for only 25 bucks :woohoo:

I sent Rob an email with the 3 digit number stamped on my original and he was able two cut two perfect keys for a lot less then that.

Thank you Rob

PM me the code # of the key, and I can see if I can make it.
As long as the lock is in good shape it should work fine.
Check with a local Locksmith if you have one and am in need asap.
