for those that share similar dilemma.
yet are handy with man tools.
I lost my only key. bought from individual. no manual. no key code.
my solution, cheapest. quickest.
option #1. tow to dealer, have them put new ignition on$85858...no..
option #2 take out tumbler take to locksmith, he says takes a few days. $300...no...
option #3 jimmy rig ignition to work. drill out gas cap etc.. nah..its too nice of a bike.....
option #4 what all older guys do....leave it sit for 20 years in the back of garage. ..waste..
option #5 make your own...........YES...
I searched this thread for "lost key" found what type of key to buy.
suz18 or something like that. bought 2 for $5shipd off ebay. took only 2 days to get to me...
2 T20 security torque screws hold the tumbler in. pop off cover then unscrew those screws.
off comes the metal cap. and tumbler. between the 2 is a coin shaped disc the key passes through.
anyways........put the blank in you will get your key profile as the tumblers poke out. I marked with a marker.
took key out and filed away then put back in..repeatedly. used a wire wheel on a grinder to "wear it smooth" until..all tumblers were even when key was in....works now.
hope this helps someone.
