If you can get any lock off of the bike take it to a locksmith, he can make a key

, , , And get an EXTRA key made so you can "HIDE" it on the bike and never get stranded again. There are hundreds of places to put the spare, , , I use the zippered pocket that holds the "seat cover" at the back of the passenger seat, just below the backrest of the passenger. Ah crap, , now you guys know where my spare is hidden, , , which one of you is gonna steal my beast while I'm sleeping?????


Oh well, , all your bikes are newer/better than mine so you're prolly not gonna steal the beast, , , ,

The key code is stamped on the back of all the lock cylinders. A letter then two numbers. The fuel door is a good one to get as you can probably pop the door with a screwdriver with no damage. I wasn't able to find a local locksmith that wasn't a moron, so I ended up ordering new keys from an ebay locksmith, instead. The PO had only one key and it was so worn down there was no point in duplicating it. Getting a new one cut from code was the answer.

The tumbler configuration is different on the fuel filler door lock and the fairing compartment door lock compared to the ignition lock.....!!!!!
