I'll look back and laugh at all this.

So, what is the moral/lesson to be learned from all this?

Yes, that is exactly correct. Tomorrow, I am going to go to the dealer and tell them to use that code and make me a key. NO MORE SCREWING AROUND!!!

Re: Need Help!!!!!!!!!!!

Do you think the locked steering is going to keep thieves from loading your bike 2 people could load that bad boy on a trailer no problem. Take it to a locksmith or your gonna dick around and lose 2 more weeks of riding. As long as you can prove you own it no problem. Lost the only key to my bike once years ago. Called a mobile locksmith after 5 on a friday, that was a $90 key in 1993, would have been $20 at his shop. Its called an impression watched the guy start with a blank and stick it in the ignition switch then pull it out and file on it repeated this for 15 minutes then he handed me a working key.

Re: Need Help!!!!!!!!!!!

I was emailed John, a motorcycle key specialist, and he told me that the "C8**" stamped on my key is the actual key code. But, I was told that it was useless from Honda Town, a well-known Honda dealer, and that there WAS NO KEY CODE IN THE IGNITION.

I copied and pasted the email.

Most dealers don't know much about the locks except how to sell you new ones. I specialize in motorcycle locks and keys and yes, I am sure that C8** is the key code; it is stamped on the original Honda keys. If you have read and typed it correctly as C8** guarantee that it will work or your money back. The info I sent last time still applies.

Thanks, John

Are you sure the C8** is my key code (I was told otherwise by a Honda Dealer that claims to know everything about Honda Motorcycles)? If it is, than your a life saver, because it seems as if your my only hope for using the same ignition, gas cap, and rear seat lock. So, allyou would have to do is create the keyusing the key code "C8**?"
Thanks A lot
Please reply ASAP

C86 is your key code and I can cut a key for $25 plus $5 for each duplicate, shipping included. I can cut and ship the key(s) within 1 day. I take PayPal to [email protected] , Visa and MasterCard. My toll-free number is 1-877-554-0445. I can send you a PayPal invoice if you like; just email your order and PayPal email address.


Thanks, John

I chipped my one and only motorcycle key, and do not have the tab with the key code on it. I called the dealer and they told me I must purchase a new one, which would cost me about $280. I don't want to go that route, so what do you suggest I do? I still have the key, which is only chipped away at one point and side. The key should be symmetrical, so would you be able to cut it like the other side? The only number I see on my key is "C86," but they told me that is useless.
Please help.
Thanks









See what's free at AOL.com.

Do you think he's legit? Or is he just trying to take my money?

And, I will try WAL-MART, maybe, just maybe, they may be able to do it.

Try Mogolf's suggestion, I don't think you need to spend the bucks on the whole thing

Re: Need Help!!!!!!!!!!!

As posted previously the 954 (and 929 too I think) the ignition switch has two one-way allen-type bolts, so you can't remove with ordinary means (theft deterrent I guess)..... You have to drill these out and use an ez-out to remove the screw to access the code stamp located on the back of the lock (you can't see if for the steering head). My dealer cannot (will not) make a key from the VIN #. Some dealers may can trace the key if they dont have a key stamp(?) machine though. Pretty easy to do actually if you have the have the upper fairing off or you can remove the top TT bridge with the ignition attached and then drill it out. Once you have the code ( 6 digits), you should be set.

I just did it this week and it takes about 10 minutes with the fairing off. My dealer cut the new key for $14.00. Whole lot cheaper than a new or used ignition set.

Re: Need Help!!!!!!!!!!!

if one side of the key is still good, all you need is a key blank....anybody who cuts keys can cut both sides of the new key by the good side of the old one. who knows, local place may even have the right blank. if it's the same as my 96, the ilco blank number is x138 hd75. hell, try walmart.....
