A little while ago I posted about having an intermittent immobiliser problem on my gen 2 '12. Problem is the antenna ring is open circuit. It turns out that on a gen 1 bike you can replace the antenna separately but not on a gen 2!!!! So instead of a bill of £60 to replace the antenna I am now faced with having to replace the whole ignition switch for £170.
Stripping the ignition mechanism to take off the antenna is identical between the two gens but you just can't purchase separately the parts.
After speaking to Kawasaki UK it seems like it's a common fault as he knew straight away the answers to my question. 'Sorry but ....'
All i will do is take the ring off and put into my original switch because I don't want to go through the hassle of having to program new keys and have different keys for the tank and tail unit.
Bit pissed off really
