Spare key
« on: April 09, 2018, 03:58:27 pm »
Does any of you know how to get a spare key cut for my bike?Do I need to go to a dealer or can I can a independent key cutter to make one for me?
Ride your bike until it hurts-and then-err ride it a bit more.

It's a dealer job I'm afraid the key has to be programmed to the bike.

The key head has the immobiliser transponder in it which is intrrogated by the ring antenna (the black plastic 'ring' around the ignition barrel. Without the correct response from the key the immobiliserwo't 'unlock' and the bike won't start.

If you only need one for your Sports Case locks any old key from the chippy will do, assuming they can get the blank.
