Lost Key

Post by BOOK70 »



I Have lost my keys to the Goldwing... and i was just woundering if someone could tell me if the locksmith could make a key from the trunk lock, or saddlebags locks, if it would work in the ignition switch, so I wouldn't have to go through the trouble of removing the switch.
My old key did work on all the locks on the bike.

Thanks TigerCop

I don't see why not, if all the locks are keyed the same your locksmith should have not problem. he will probably find a code on the trunk lock to assist him. But I would call the smith of your choice to make sure before I went to pay him a visit. :D :D good luck

You can have a key sent to your home for $5.50 All you need is the key code. You can find it on any of your locks on the back side.

Here is the link to order.

That would be the code he needs to make a key. It should be the same # on all the locks

Probably, most have 5 or 6 alphanumeric digits.

In your case, (GL1200) the last 3 digits are what you're looking for. Should be A, B, C, or D followed by 2 numbers (ie C41.) That will be your key code and should be on every lock.

Hi all, need help, I lost my key several months ago, now I broke into my filler cap to access the fuel cap. Now I cannot lock my trunk and glove box. Problem was the whole set of lock did not have same key as the ignition. I got used bike, 1 key shared between the locks except the ignition. Is it possible to get 3 locks set with 1 master key, what type of lock should I buy? Hard to get original locks. Seek your help. Thks

Should be a 3 digit number stamped into the lock cylinders somewhere on your fuel/trunk locks. You can have a new key cut from that key code....

It's cold and snowing outside and very late, or I'd go out to the garage to see where I can find a code on my bike.

No don't go out since it is cold. I will disconnect the barrel and have a look. Once I get the key code, where or whom should I seek to get the key cut? I m in Malaysia problem is here the the locksmith ain't that good. Perhaps u can recommend me somebody who would cut and courier or register mail to me. I would pay the person of course. Or I could pay for your trouble. So sorry to bother.

I always keep a spare key hidden on the bike.
I know that's not helpful right now, but...just a suggestion.

Yes that was the stupid mistake I made. Once I get all locks replaced I would probably get 3 new set of duplicates

I had this place cut a key from code for me. They were able to figure out what I had and were very helpful.
