I have lost my key and the dealership told me in order for them to get me another key made, i would have to give them a 6 digit code either on the ignition or on the gas lid lock. i've located the number on the gas lid lock and was wondering if the numbers on the ignition are the same. i would assume so since they both take the same key. thanks

Any good locksmith can make a key for you using that same number and a lot cheaper than the dealer.

I have 2 spares, one that stays here at home and my wife carries the other when we're on the road as a backup.

I don't know for certain but it sure would seem logical. Does the owners manual say anything about it? I'll check my service manual when I have a chance.

Welcome to the forum and I'm sure somebody will be along shortly that knows more about it.

a real locksmith can make one without having the code, just the lock, well thats how they do it here.

I just found this post:

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. :waving:



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

Check your title and documentation, you may find a key number there. If so, take that number to the dealership and they should be able to cut you a key.

My documentation has the key number on it.

Only use the dealership option as a last resort this will be far more expensive than a locksmith. Taking a lock to a locksmith and having a key made is an option but again can be expensive due to the labour involved in striping down the lock, there is also the problem of more tumblers being present in the ignition than in other locks, on some models. If your key fitted all the locks on your bike the key no from any of the locks will do. The last 3 digits of the 6 digit no is the key number this will start with the letter A,B,C or D followed by a 2 digit number between 00 and 99 for example B64 have a key cut to number is by far the best way to get a new key.

I just got one off e-bay for my 1500. Paid 9 bucks for the blank, sent the seller the key code off the gas lid lock and it works great. He is in North Carolina....
