Do any of you know who sells a combination ignition switch/fork lock for a 1982 KZ1000J2? I'm not sure of the part number as the Kawasaki Parts Diagram includes a 27004-5098 and 27005-5019. My switch was not "engaged" in the run position the other day and I lost all power in the middle of the street. Not good. Seems to be working fine now, but it's bugging me. Thank you.

Replacing the ignition switch is an easy task:

1.Disconnect the Negative battery terminal connection.
2.Remove the headlight and disconnect the ignition switch wiring.
3.Lower the headlight housing.
4.There are two(2) allen screws holding the ignition switch to the instrument cluster.Remove them.
5.Do the steps in reverse.

Thank you guys. I have not experienced the problem since then, so I am still using the old switch. I also subsequently got a NOS parts manual and the P/N of the ignition switch is the -5019. The -5098 includes the ignition switch as well as the helmet and seat locks (all keyed alike).

Thanks for the info Herk. However, in my parts book it shows a "dashed line" around the ignition switch, seat lock, and helmet lock with a reference number of 27004 (P/N 27004-5098). Reference nuber 27005, just the igniution switch and 2 keys, is P/N 27005-5019. I don't think this scooter came without a fork lock built into the ignition switch. Do appreciate the info and thanks again!

Any number that ends in 8 and enclosed in ( ) means the 8 and the closing ) form the smiley. 8) Just add a space between the 8 ) if you want it to look somewhat normal.
