Replacement Trunk

I have been looking for a new trunk since the origial one fell off this summer and have not found any aftermarket replacements. Has anyone else seen any?

I called 2 dealers who could not find the part, nor could I find it in the fiche from the Kawasaki web site.

Out of the blue I stopped into a dealer in White Plains, NY and they were able to find the part. I can post the PN when I dig up my reciept. It was $38 plus tax, $20 to the dealer if you have those connections . I ordered mine sans lock figuring I can make a cabnet lock fit.

BTW: the name for the part is CASE, Tool. So searching for Trunk did not work!

Yes! that is the part! I wish i found this site earlier in the summer. I hope this post helps others in the future.

Like the guy on a 750 I saw this weekend in westchester who was missing the same part.

That is a very nice microfiche reference.

The lock on the tool case box on my 2002 VN750 just fell off during a ride a couple weeks ago! Didn't notice that it had fallen off until I got back home and noticed that the door was hanging open. Luckily, nothing fell out.

I'm replacing the lock, but I'm wondering whether I can get it re-keyed by a local locksmith so that I only need the standard ignition key for all four locks on the bike. I guess the locksmith will let me know once it comes in, because the Kawasaki dealer sure didn't know.

Notes from Lance (lostiguy) on re-keying locks:

I was able to "rekey" my new Kaw toolbox
lock on my own. It's really easy. I'm passing on the link to the
page someone else had once passed on to me:

http://home.howstuffworks.com/lock-picking2.htm

I took the tumbler and pins out, rearranged the pins in the
order that suited my ignition key the best I could, using
all but one pin. So I left that pin out of the new arrangement.
Works fine. In 15 min, I was done, ...and now using my
original Kaw key.

I did the same thing to mine, the new keys that came with the lock were 1 tumbler away. I was able to cut the new keys with my dremil and works in the ignition. Now I have 4 keys for the bike.
