sounds me like you stole the bike, if thats the case shame on you. if not i apologize. anyway what you're probably going to have to do is get a whole new ignition,gas cap and your rear cowl. unless you have the original title or something and can prove the bike wasn't stolen. when i bought mine i got a key code# in case i loose both my keys i can get new ones with that number, if i don't have that number then i am SOL.

You bought a bike that had no keys seems fishy to me

It doesn't seem too fishy, he said he bought it at an auction. Probably a repo and when they went to collect the bike, the owner most likely didn't come out to be a nice guy and offer the key. I'm sure he bought as-is and that didn't include a key.

I bought a repo and it came with 2 keys. Not OEM Honda keys, but DIY from Lowes. The original owner has the key still - not too comforting for me.

or he just said he bought it at an auction just so a gullible person as yourself would answer his question so he can find a key for the stolen bike.. notice how he hasnt replied yet, that might tell you something

you should read his other posts before accusing him of anything....seems to be pretty legit.

lots of auction bikes come without keys.take the ignition off and have a key cut.

if it was a stolen bike why would he bother asking?why would he use the vin?

you can also buy a complete key set used off ebay or a bike wrecker or a new factory set and that replaces all the locks.

you only need one key so take the seat lock,gas cap or ignition and the one key will fit all locks

^Hey BCC..:wave:


anyways, take the ignition off and take it to the dealership. The dealership will read the number stamped on the cylinder, cut a key and check it in the lock to make sure it works. When I did this it cost me $6.00.. you can just find the number and give it to the dealer and they can cut the key but there's no guarantee it will work, sometimes the key has to be "adjusted" a bit to work. A locksmith can do all this too, and in fact if the dealer can't cut a working key they will call a locksmith to do it.

the ignition is easy to remove. Remove the front fairings, undo the two bolts holding the ignition on and unclip the wire.

you might be able to do this but this is what they do for cars... You need a registration, the vin number and your ID. You take those 3 to the dealership and they'll make you a new one

maybe its legit, maybe its not. but buying a bike with no keys just doesn't sound smart IMO. Unless you already know what to do in case the keys are missing (not in this case since he was asking what to do).

well whatever you think it's fairly common for auction bikes to not have keys. As I stated my track bike came with no keys.. from an insurance auction.

ahhaha well thanks guys. if i stole the bike would i really be willing to take the vin number to the dealership and get a new key made? probably not. also how would i register it? i dont even understand how stolen bikes are useful other then parting out, and the main parts (such as engine) have a vin stamped on it anyways.

anyways to the one dude that helped thanks a lot. im going to try and take the ignition off now although yu would think you would need some kind of special tool or somthing?
