Manufacturer rated as Thatcham category 2?
« on: August 12, 2015, 03:01:00 PM »

Hi all,

I've got a 2003 Kawasaki zx636 (B1H) motorcycle and wanted to know if the standard manufacturer immobilizer is a Thatcham Category 2 immobiliser?

As I'm about to take out an insurance policy for the bike and it specifies the following:


"702 - E702 SECURITY - THATCHAM CATEGORY 2 IMMOBILISER - We will not provide any cover under Section 1 & 2

of the policy (i.e. any claim for loss or damage by theft or attempted theft of the insured vehicle) unless we have proof that

it is fitted with a factory fitted Thatcham Category 2 immobiliser or it has a Thatcham Category 2 immobiliser fitted by an

insurer approved installer and that the immobiliser is on and working whenever the insured vehicle is left."


Cheers,

Doesn't it have the K.I.S.S. immobiliser, I know the 2005 C models onwards do. If it does it will have a RED master key (or it would have had from new)

if it does the ignition barrel should look like this

Surely Kawasaki could confirm the immobiliser category?

The ignition barrel doesn't look like that image, it just looks black and silver.

I've tried to get hold of a Kawasaki dealer but couldn't get through, I'll try them again tomorrow.

I'm quite sure the b1h doesn't have a factory immobiliser

I don't remember mine having it either. My 05 10R had KISS - maybe that was the year it was introduced.

in that case it hasn't, I can't find anything to say it was fitted to models before 05 so it would appear you are out of luck

Thanks for the replies everyone, after calling a couple of dealerships the consensus is that it doesn't have one fitted.
