Question where can you get a key cut?

Im not into giving the dealer 40 bucks and waiting 2 weeks to get a key cut. Does anybody know where you can get a blank?

Any professional locksmith should have the blanks available, and be able to cut you one.

I lost a key to my C50T Boulevard and the dealer wanted a fortune to replace it. Went to the locksmiths, with the other original key I had, and he picked a blank off the rack and cut me a new one for about $2.00! He even knew that the same key worked for the fuel cap as for the ignition, but needed to be cut slightly different. Even told me to go out and check it on the bike in both the ignition AND fuel cap before I left!

I hate autocorrect. I always end up posting some thong I didn't Nintendo.

I tried that and they didnt have the blank. I was hoping to have a locksmith make it as you have described but my longtime guy is at a loss for the blank. he has thousands of blanks.

Have him try the Ilco or Silca key blank 1137B

It also might be an HYD12, HYD13 or HYD14

another locksmith in another city used a bmw key and made one that works ok although the key is a little skint on the square part before the fluting starts on the key. Cost $3.25 and about 15 minutes whilst she decided which one that was close to try. She told me that the blank that was required has not been released to non oems, so if you get a key that works its not necessarily the correct blank but it will work.

Yes, I aimost got a woody on that $3.25. I mean its just a friggin key not an integral part of the space shuttle or something. I hate feeling like I got to go 3rd party on everything but sometimes its just too evident how hard they're trying to put it to ya. I been getting keys made for years and its one of the things that seem reasonable. If they had said 10 bucks I would have oked it.

Give 20 bucks to a local locksmith if you don't want to give 40 to the dealer.
