Lost a key, but have a non working spare

Okay so I tried searching for topics related to mine and I found a few, but was wondering more specifically for my situation.

So I lost my original Honda key, but I had a spare made at a Honda dealership. The spare doesn't have the Honda logo on it, but looks like just a normal metal silver key. I also do not have the tag or key code thing.

Now I tried to use the spare that I had made, but it doesn't work on the ignition....I should have tested it when I had it made, but didn't think of that. The spare works on the gas cap and the trunk, but I know that those two things require like one less tooth or tumbler, whatever its called to open.

Im wondering what I can do to try and make another spare key that will work on the ignition. Could I bring my spare that doesn't work on the ignition to a locksmith and have him try and figure out why it doesn't work (like maybe it wasn't shaved all the way or something, but I have no idea on the workings of keys)?

Or would I have to try and remove my ignition, which I have no idea how to do, so any advice if that is what I have to do would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks guys

ok somebody just had this problem a while back and he found a website that would send a key to you pretty quick, it was like motorcyclekey.com or something, idk.

try to do some searching around, ie search button and see if you come across another thread just like this one from a week or so ago

And provided you have your registration papers / vin / engine number and what not, if you go down to the honda dealership they will be able to give you the numbers you need to get a key made, there will be one for the ignition barrel itself and another for the HISS (if you have it)...

I have my VIN, title, and registration. Not sure what you mean by engine number though o_O

as for HISS, located in the US so I don't think I have it since it's only Europe (i think right? haha)

Engine number is the same as the VIN, but for the engine instead of the frame...

And you probably wont have hiss...

Just go down to the dealership, prove you own the bike and they should be able to give you a code for the key, you then take that code to a locksmith and they will put it into their computer and out pops your new key.

They're too cheap...
Not smart enough to deal with a computerised key...
They WANT to have their bike stolen...
Mexico is too close and diluting the gene pool...

In other words, nope no idea, but I do suspect it is to keep the cost of the bike as low as possible.

I went to a local dealership and brought all the materials, they told me they don't supply the code because there isn't some big database that stores all that info...

so would my only option be to take my ignition off to find the code?

Not sure but I know there is for my cage... I would have expected them to have one though...

Worst case your favourite locksmith should be able to sort it out for you.

Dealership can't do much for you, go to a locksmith, bring your tank lock with you. Seems like you're in the US, should cost ~$30 and take minutes to do.
