    Keys for Ultra 250

    Order a spare key and have the ecu to accept your extra key. If you loose both your keys you might have to buy a new ECU. Keys are like $46.

    what ya mean stan? .... i'm just curious and trying to clarify. Does the ECU get programmed to ACCEPT keys? or are keys programmed thru other keys? or is the key programmed to the ECU?

    if you order extra keys to have the ECU accept them like you said.... then why would losing all your keys mean buying a new ECU if the ECU is the component in the loop doing the accepting of the key?

    put your key in their and Glue that thing in for good and snap the top part off. Then it'll never have to be removed.

    Keys

    As it was explained to me at the dealership you have to have
    your working key available to program a second key. Supposedly
    the device that does this is from Kawasaki and costs $1500. My
    dealer said some dealers may not have or get this gizmo. Seems
    hard to believe that to maintain an authorized dealer status you
    would not have to have one.

    If you do lose your key you have to buy a new ECU, however much
    that costs!

    I have mine on a float and seeing as how its in a glovebox it
    shouldn't get misplaced. I did loose a SeaDoo key while on a float
    because I had also put a D ring on it to better connect to my
    vest. I think the Dolphins or Manatees ate it..........

    I heard $32 for the key plus any "programming costs". Anyone hear
    anything on this??

    I think your "Champion" is feeding you a bit of a turd.

    Yes the ECU stores the Key information. ie Idetifiation code pattern but Kawi like in the past made different codes. You may have a key that also works on my ski. Who knows there may be 5 different key codes or 10 different key codes.

    The dealer simply sends in the VIN and kawi matches the key to that series of VIN's. There is a key reader that a dealership can get that allows then to read a key. Might be helpful to them in trouble shooting the unit but not nessary for them to have. Only time the ECU would need replacing is if the code was corrupted some how and didnt take any of the keys and thats covered under warrantee.

    Ok Im no expert but thats the way it was explained to me. Mine source sound more believable then yours.

    Skip, I hope you're right. Ultra250 ECU costs $500.

    "Kawasaki 2007 Ultra 250 replacement keys. Note must be programed by a dealer using your current keys. If you have lost your current keys you will need to purchase a new CPU and have it programed. --Parker Yamaha"

    I heard the same key story... it did come from 2 different dealerships so it might be worth looking into.

    I wonder what price richard can get the keys for?

    The dealers key programmer cost $25. But it only allows the ecu to program if you have a working key. All keys have different #'s.
    You can program ECU to accept 6 different keys. All keys must be present at programming. My fear on the way home you lose both keys. Your dealer cannot program a new key.
