Just a heads up, that one of our members Koxx4, has been appointed "Keys& Locks Guru" due to the fact that he has indepth knowlege of motorcycle keys and locks, through his trade as a Master Locksmith.

Being the sort of person not given to sing his own praises, I thought I would mention it on his behalf.

If you have any issues regarding lost keys, keys locked in trunks, ignition or other barrels with issues, it would be good to address Koxx4 and seek his assistance.

Might be good to still put any questions for him in open forum, so that everyone might benifit from his knowledge, although I am sure he won't mind a PM to give him a heads up about the thread.

I know he and the company he works for can cope with any motorcycle key or lock ever made, bar the HISS system found on UK 1800's which are coded in such a way as to be a "Honda stealer" only thing. They can still make up a key that would get you into the boxes for a HISS fitted bike but it wold need to be HISS fitted by Honda, to work in the ignition.





One other thing to note, Koxx4 is a UK member and so please bear this in mind if tying to contact him, and of course he has a normal working day to contend with as well as sleeping etc.



(if this post were better placed in another forum like the Reference one, I am sure one of the A team will sort it)

I do have a question for him!! My gas tank cover lock bit the dust the other day, had to pry it open with a screwdriver. I checked with Honda and they wanted $42 for a new one. Is there a substitute that can be rekeyed to work with the ignition key??? It's not that important to be able to rekey it but it sure would be nice.

if you haven't already done so, shoot Koxx4 a PM to highlight this thread and your question, and I am sure he will respond as soon as he can.



One thing I should have mentioned ( and will edit my first post), Ian is a UK member so please bear this in mind when expecting a response.

We have replaced these locks in the past with Lowe and Fletcher cam locks,(much cheaper)however they cannot be rekeyed to suit the rest of the bike, as the key section (key blank) is different. I would look on eBay for a replacement lock or if you do order one from a main stealer order it under your existing key number.

Not a problem Ian, but don't expect me to go easy on you elsewhere on the forums, this is important enough for members, tonot take the micky, but elsewhere I consider you to be fair game I am afraid.
