Keys cut by code

Postby Fred Camper » Fri Jun 01, 2012 5:58 pm



I ordered new keys for both my GL1000's today by providing just the code off one of the locks. I got the code off the ignition as it is stamped on the top of the cylinder visibly when you take the plastic shroud off. Since these bikes are old, get keys by the code should work lots better than using a pocket worn duplicate. The price was $5 each including shipping. I will post a link.

I just took the cylinder to a locksmith and had a key made instantly.

Fred,
Looking at my initial reply to this post it may seem like I was saying that a Locksmith was a better choice. That was not my intent, I only meant it as an additional choice. I'm sure there are many riders who do not live in an area with a good locksmith nearby and the mail order route is a valuable resource. Thanks for informing us.

No problem Art, and locksmith is always a better choice if local and convenient and affordable but for those that live in the boonies this route works well also.

I just had two keys cut by the 'Keymaker' for replacements of the ones I lost for the '79.

Paid $15 inc shipping to the UK and they were here even before I ordered them! (ok, not quite, but you know what I mean! :D )

Well satisfied!

'Impossible' is just a level of difficulty! The only stupid question is the one you didn't ask first!
