So the one owner lost the key? Where did you get the code to cut the new key with? The tool that dealers use to cut those keys is an ancient technology. It's possible their cutters aren't sharp enough or worn out to where is not accurate anymore. I had 2 keys cut by my dealer and he was really worried they wouldn't work, but I got lucky and they each worked. It's also possible the blank they used wasn't right. I think those old style Honda keys had 2 different style blanks.
Ahhh, Ok, I'm not going to be much help then. I do remember the small tin tag that the original keys came with. But for the life of me I can't remember if we gave that code to order the new keys, or if we bought blanks and just copied them. Is it possible the code tag isn't from that bike?Bike is an 03 954. Not my normal 94 900.
This post is of no value to this thread.Careful research and sifting through BS will reveal the answer to you in time. 4 days of ice and snow, there is no rush for a forum answer this week. Your sad forecast reminds me of cold walks to work in downtown Newton. Never again.
This is the only solution I could imagine would work. Figure $120 or so.If you take the trunk lock or gas tank lock off i think a locksmith will get it within 4 or 5 keys. On my 929 there were more tumblers in the ignition. I had to remove my gas tank and have the smith pick the lock to remove and make a key.
No offense japbikes, you're OK, just want to make a point to the peanut gallery. You poke a grizzly enough times, he's going to get pissed off and bite you in the ass. I'm curious, isn't JAP a racist and insulting prefix toward anyone Japanese?
