Re: HISS system
Right, i dont know if this helps...
I picked up my Hornet 900 with no key. And it has the HISS System so i went to the Honda dealership and asked them to make me a new key. They said that its impossible as Honda made a system that was faultless. I would have to either contact the previous owner and ask if he had one, or get a complete brain including the ECU - £1000 New or £400/£500 2ND Hand.
As you can imagine, i was pissed. I had just bought a bike for £2000 and would need to do about £2000+ of repairs, and also a new Brain for £1000. It all was adding up on the first day!
If the bike doesnt have a HISS system, you will be ok, but if it did, the key would be matched to the brain and in England, you cannot get a key cut.
Over here, it doesnt matter what you do, your bike can and will get stolen. The just strip it, sell the parts (e.g. the clocks on the hornet are £700 new - mine has a new set) and they make their money.
Take care and good luck
