Very true, but the stamped code number is the same. So you can cut a key from code, but not impression the lock for a key. To impression a key you really need to take the whole bike so the key can be checked in each lock and tuned up a bit as needed. I had this done many years ago when the keys to my CB750 fell out on the way to work. It took the locksmith less than 2 minutes with a blank and a file to make a new key for the ignition. But it took a little touchup so the key would also work the fork lock and the seat.

My locksmith cut 2 new keys from code...

said if they don't fit, bring the bike in and he would make it work.

all worked perfect.
then I had him make me two of the keys with knobs on them.

Only if the fuel door and the fairing door locks are original..........!

Mine have been changed, I could not get an ignition key cut from the code numbers.......

Do we know if his locks have been changed....?? I don't know.....!!

I have heard Honda has sold a few of those locks....!!!!!!
