They can make the key with nothing more than the tools they carry around. They use a gizmo they stick in the lock to figure out what shape the key needs to work.

A dealer can replace the key with the key code, but I assume that's long gone by now.

Its.......A FACT!

Yea but then you have to worry about any "aux." locks......like fork lock, seat release, helmet locks.....etc.

I think I'd contact a locksmith or two first.......and a dealer or two.

Sometimes they can get a key given the VIN of the bike........but probably not one that old.
