Default Immobiliser problem

Hello,
Recently I lost keys for my Honda FJS600 Silver Wing Scooter. The only key I have left is service key, that doesnt have immobiliser chip in it. When I went to local honda service to get a new key, they said that only option is to change whole immobilser block, get new set of keys and it would cost 390GBP.

Is that realy the only option and is it realy so expensive or they just earning some easy cash? Maybe anyone know a cheaper solution/service?

That's about what it would cost for a car; no reason to thing the bike would be much cheaper.

BUT.......check around with a few well established locksmiths in the area. There IS no cheap and easy solution, but the locksmith might be able to save you a few bucks.

Also try some hardware stores, not Home Depot or Lowes, but the smaller chains, or locally owned. They, arround here at least, sell auto & bike keys & transponders. Or it may be easier to disable the system then to repair it.

I thought of that too BUT......it is supposed to be an anti-theft device.
Hopefully it would be fairly difficult to bypass.

I absolutely HATE those things. Had on fail in a car a few years back. If it hadn't been under warranty, it would have cost me close to $1,000 to fix. YIKES!!

I'd hope not too, but in my area any theft deterent system would be more annoying then protective. Glad I don't have to deal with issues like that.
