O man where are my keys?

I lost my keys. Ya, I'm that stupid. I was burning trash one night and i think they may have fallen in the pile of trash. car keys, house keys, bike keys. everything.

So what now(for the bike obviously, i never got around to copying the key i got w/ the used bike)?

call the dealer... I know with newer cars the dealers can cut a key by the vin # I'm not sure if it is the same with newer bikes... if not you may be looking at replacing the ignition and getting a new key/ignition.... the problem then is having to buy a new gas cover also... or look on ebay or motorcycle salvage yard for a set key/ignition/gas cap...

ps thanks for the reminder to copy my key... oops too soon to joke... my bad..

if the dealer can cut one by vin you will need your registration and an ID proving you are the owner...

I've never heard of a MC dealer cutting keys. They can sale you the proper key for your bike but you'll most likely need a lock smith to cut it from scratch. Still cheaper than replacing all the locks and the gas cap is a pain in the ares to get off with out a key.

Seperate your keys... that way when you do this you don't loose them all..

Glad you found them...

Also, your dealers can order a new key based on your VIN. And any good locksmith could get you a new key as well. The debate would be which would be cheaper but of coarse the locksmith would be faster!

For future reference!

On all counts. And have spares in the house in case you do loose them again.

I always keep spare keys around. My truck locks the doors as soon as you turn the key. Makes it a real pain to work on sometimes, because you have to remember to open a window and turn the alarm off if you need to run the engine. I've had to run for my spares several times when somebody bumped the door shut or set off the alarm and i didn't have the remote with me.

Valuable lesson- ALWAYS keep spare keys, and give a set to friends/family just in case!

The good thing is that most newer cars won't lock the drivers door if its open. Even if you hit the lock button.
