I may have lost my only key to my 1984 Wing. Can I get a replacement from Honda? Can a locksmith help me?

you have to get the number off your ignition, Honda can key it from that or I do believe Ive heard of people taking in one of there saddle bag locks to, But for sure they can key from ignition... YOU JUST NEED THE NUMBER.

The number is stamped on the ignition switch, but you have to remove the ignition to see it.

Similar thing happened to me. I got the numbers off of the lock for the gas cover on the false tank. This one is best since you can take the false tank off the bike toget the lock open.I can't remember if I had to take the lockout of the cover or not. It's a lot easier than taking out the ignition.

This will not help now but for the future you should hide a spare key somewhere on your bike. I have been doing this on all my vehicles for many many years.

Ugh. I went through this and Honda said all they couldd do is replace the ignition switch. Anyway, I was able to get a key from the PO who had lost the 2nd key but then found it. I had 5 made and have one in my wallet, one on the bike, one at my parents house, one in the garage and one in the house! Good luck.

Might also be worth a look under the left fairing pocket. A number of people have found that a spare key for the bike was in there possibly from the factory or the dealer. One of my 1200's had a pouch in there like others had described, stuck to the side, inside that pocket hole, but it had fuses in it so the PO had likely removed the key that was originally there.

Other than that, some locksmiths have the ability to make factory keys as well, from the number. I had one made for my 86 Aspy because the keys I had were so badly worn, I didn't want replacements made from them. You will likely have to prove ownership to get them made though.

I had a spare key made at a lock shop. It took several trips back to the grinder for fine tuning, but it works in all locks. Cost was $1.89

When my friend andI travel, we exchange spare keys. So if one of us were to lose a key.... well, you get it.

Here is how it goes. If you have only one key you will loose it. If you have spares you'll never loose one again....At least that's how it works for me.

Funny stuff snowman..I also keep 5 Keys for all of my vehicles. Once you have to have someone open your car for 60 to one hundred bucks you will find buying those extra sets makes lots of sense.

I had to come back to this to see how you came out. Too many will not let us all know the results of their efforts.

Wonderful that you found your key.

Nowa, ago ride it like you stole it and the key.
