Question about 1999 kawasaki ZZR 600

To get a new key cut due to losing mine I have to remove the ignition barrel and take it to my local bike shop to be sent off, not being very mechanically minded I would like some advice on the easiest way to do this, ie which bolts to undo etc. with a diagram if possible. thanks

a lady asked her question in all capital letter. i though this was a joke, so a just answered of the top of my head, that they 're battery was good and they kept saying that it was good, it was looking like a prank, so i went along with the battery prank and said you need a new one. oh no! i guess it was some of them people from down south that dont take a liken to my kind, so they gave me the thumbs down award. well i apologized and told them that it could be there ignition switch.
im sorry to you know for asking this but she brought down my rating
and a good one from you would balance it out.the locksmiths i go to have been inthe business for over forty years they work on anything that a key goes to! thanks

Is there keys already cut that starts a 1998 honda accord v6 for sale or do i need to buy a new ignition switch. Lost mine

talk with a locksmith as there is a key code on the barrel of the switch and he should be able to cut a key to that code
if no code he will be able to remove the barrel and cut new keys from the tumbler positions
the only thing is that although he can cut keys , if it needs keys that work an immobilizer they can be expensive
if you are buying this car , then the seller should have the keys

I lost my yamaha r15 bike key

I had the same problem with my ZX10R losing the master key to which all other keys need to be coded from and I am assuming that Yamaha might use a very similar system in which the key gives off a signal that is picked up from your bikes electrical system even before the key is placed into the key barrel if your key is not chipped and is a regular type key then one can be cut fairly simple or replace the key barrel with a new one and set of keys . But if you have lost the master key that codes all other keys for your bike then it can become a very expensive job running into the thousands of dollars easy because replacement of the security system that is integrated into the whole bikes computer and electrical system is a very complex and expensive system to replace . There are key coders that you might be able to use costing a few hundred dollars instead of thousands of dollars and without the need to replace your bikes whole security system as well as people that offer the service to recode your keys depending on the difficulties of your system . You will need to start looking on youtube for methods or devices or people that offer that type of service and start by searching for lost key transponders or key codes and then finding out if your system is compatible and can be given a new code and set of keys hopefully this will be the case because there isn't much of away around other than the very expensive total system replacement of your bikes security system . I have lost my master key and can not get any replacements cut and I have lost nearly all of the copied spare keys that were originally coded from the master key so I have attached a key permanently hidden on my bike that the transponder can pick up as a signal and I use a normal key to fit in and turn the key barrel as normal without the fear of losing the coded key , as well adding a few anti theft devices of my own like a hidden cut off switch , disc brake lock with alarm etc so I can make key copies at any key cutting place for a few dollars .

How to replace ignition tumbler on 2000 ml320 mercedes benz?

i would assume that there is a hardened steel sleeve "VERY HARD" that surrounds the barrel the same as the W140 model. the repair shop will have trouble cutting this off , like the novices at diesel motors in perth western australia. and will probably want to charge you around $3,000 AUD to replace the key and barrel. which collapsed in my case. jamming the key in the ignition. not bad for a vehicle that had cost $219,000 AUD , and had covered 220,000 km, when there countless thousands of 40 year old toyotas and holdens running around with the original ignition barrels. anyway , digressing , the switch that sits behind the actual barrel lock will no doubt fail not long after u change the barrel also. because i would say that the junk they manufacture for these over rated piles of trash (still riding on the reputation of their 1970's products, is about the same quality level as cheap rubbish componentry used in the W140 . "google search for W140 wiring harness there s a blog with a list of owners in the US with failed wiring insulation causing the copper wires to short out and in many cases cause engine fires. manufactured by Bosch to MB specification to be biodegradable, what a totally brilliant place to start , crucial electronic components, with severely limited life from the start.! , the ignition switch doesn't need to be cut out of the steel dash frame like in earlier models, and is not particularly hard to remove however the stealer will still try to slug u around a grand and tell u its a HUGE job. a friend of mine had my ignition barrel and switch out in 20 minutes after the switch behind the barrel failed after the dealer installed a new key and barrel and charged me 6 hours or so at $120/ hour.

I have an Isuzu Rodeo and the key is stuck in the ignition any idea how to get it out? Year 2000

replace the whole ignition barrel with new key and get key programmed by dealer
can remove barrel and key by removing steering column covers turn ignition to on position and with small shank screw driver push in hole in outer top rear section of barrel assembly then pull out ignition lock barrel with key in it. fit new lock barrel and key, program new key into system and can get door lock barrels coded to suit new key or get code for old key and cut new key so it fits mechanical locks on the rest of the vehicle (just wont turn in ignition) 2 keys for vehicle.
