It's very simple. Unbolt, unplug. Then bolt up replacement and plug back in.

The difficult part is removing the old one cleanly, Kawasaki use shear bolts to secure the OE ignition switch. Fitting the replacement is easy....

I would remove top yoke, drill the bolts and use easy outs and a little heat if you dont plan on keeping the OE switch.

Much easier to get a key cut to the OE locks.

I think I will call the Dealership to see how much they will charge me.
