    So, after not being able to ride all summer due to having two broken hands, I finally got to the point where I am able to use my hands well enough to manipulate the throttle, brake, and clutch. However, I rode one time on Tuesday, and then lost my key. I honestly have no idea how, but I do not have a backup, because I lost that key.

    So now I'm hatin' life a bit. I have a key blank, my bike, my title, and very little extra money. Can anyone recommend a locksmith, or backalley-ex-motorcycle-thief who can help me out? :devil:

    My main goal is to get a new key for as little $ as possible.

    Thanks!

    Got a buddy with a trailer? Cheaper to drag the bike to a locksmith than a house call.

    You have a 2008 modern sportbike.

    Brandon has a late 70's UJM. All that needs is a sharpened screwdriver lol!

    It's not cheap to steal a bike! You should have thought of this before the theft.

    If you're the original owner, the bike should have come with a key cut number. Give that to a dealer, they can make a new key. Usually about $35.

    Bill's Locksmith in Kent.. They helped me out.. Bill used his pick set to pop open the gas tank cap and after reading the code on the inside of the lid, he was able to have an exact duplicate made for me in a matter of minutes. .. I was lucky enough to be able to pop the ignition off the backside and start it with a screwdriver and drive the bike to him.. rather than towing it.. but regardless, Bill's your guy. Google it.

    That reminds me . . . remove key code tag from spare key's key ring before spare key becomes lost.

    Take your ignition out, or take the triple off. There should be a key code stamped on the ignition. Should run about 12 bucks to have it cut with that code

    I read on some forums that the ignition no longer has a code on it? I don't want to take out the ignition unless I really have to, mainly because I have no idea how to do it :p
