LOST MY KEY WITHOUT A SPARE

Hello fellow riders...
I lost my master key to my 04 Volusia...I called the dealership and they had told me that the Serial # for the key is hidden somewhere on the bike. Does anyone in V.R. know where that code is...Thank in advance...

I'm always terrified I'm going to lose the key when I go someplace.

I won't handle the key anywhere near a sewer grate!

If you cant get the key code............

and you do end up calling a locksmith.. tell him that the National Locksmith magazine had a write up with pics and everything for changing the key pins... remember to get all the cylinders changed (ignition, tool box, helmet lock and the gas cap)...

You should be able to find a reputable locksmith at www.aloa.org (Associated Locksmiths of America). NOT all locksmiths in the yellow pages are reputable.

This is the undustry I am in, and I know there have been lots of scams with fake/real locksmiths overcharging... that is why I am adding the part about aloa.org another might be www.lockradio.com .

Contact a locksmith and tell him these #'s will all work..

Ilco Key # X241 (SUZ1
or
Silca Sz14RAP
or
Curtis SU18

Reference and instructions for access and changing the pins are in the March 2005 and Sept 2005 National Locksmith Magazine

Look in your owner's manual. There's a blank spot in there that it specificially tells you to write down your key code in case you lose your keys. I'm sure you wrote it down didn't you?...Yeah...Me neither. Here's what I did:

Write down the code off the helmet lock. Take it (code) to the locksmith. Wait 5 minutes for key...go ride!

I know...the helmet lock is hidden behind the saddlebag. It's still easier than trying to get the code off the ignition. It's the only # he needs.

I got only one key when I bought my '01 from an individual. I took the code to my stealer, who made another one from the code for $7. I'm sure that a locksmith will not charge any more than that. And while you are there, I'd recommend having a spare made up. I always carry a spare key if I am going to be any significant distance from home.

I have a spare key for my Nomad, but reading this thread makes me want to go get another one made, "just in case".

-"CJ"
'05 C50T (03/07-09/07)
'07 1600 UltraNomad (09/07-03/11)
'11 HD Electra Glide Ultra Limited (04/11-?) 103"/ABS
If you ain't gliding, you ain't riding!

The helmet lock is not he same as the ignition. It only uses part of the key.

Get an extra one and tape it inside your headlight bucket (or under the right side cover on your Nomad) Then all you'll need if you are out and lose your keys is a phillips screwdriver.
