I accidentially changed the default combo on a Krypto lock. But, if the lock is OPEN, you can discover what the combination is by looking inside the lock. Lock inside the lock and turn just one of the numbers. You will see a "groove". When the "grooves" on all numbers are aligned, you can close the lock. Note precisely the number of each tumbler when the grooves are aligned and then spin to a different combination. The lock will NOT open until you return to the "default" combination.

Then follow the setting directions to select a combination that you can easily remember and re-test the lock several times before using it on your bike. The combo lock is probably, for a variety of reasons, the LEAST secure of Kryptonite's U-locks.

I use the combo Kryptonite for kid's bikes and cheap beach cruisers that are locked in "Friendly Village" types of locations. It is NOT an "over-night" big city college type of lock, or a midnight movie in New York City type of lock. For those situations you need the Kryptonite New York 3000 (if not a PAIR of New York 3000's).
