Need advice on cutting new CBR1000RR key
2007 CBR1000RR (USA)
My motorcycle was stolen and the thieves broke the ignition. I have a new ignition but now I also have two keys. I was told by a mechanic that the I can cut one side of a key blank using the new ignition key and cut the other side of the key blank using the old key that fits the tank and seat lock. The only drawback, he says, would be that sometimes I'd have to turn the key around when it doesn't work the first way I put it in either key hole but at least I would only need to carry one key.
Any thoughts on this before I waste a $12 key blank?
