Key cutting

Post by Jameshambleton on Tue 21 Mar 2017, 7:45 pm

I've just got my bike key that has the original key number on it. Does anyone know of an online cutting service that can cut them from the number alone?

I got mine done from M B Loc TEC through eBay.
Gave him the number and sent photo of key profile and hey presto.
Cost me £6.99. Came within 3 days.
Just Google MB Loc Tech.

Happy Days

any cobbler shop (shoe repairer) that cuts keys  will be able to do one for you a lot cheaper than a Honda dealer

But you need an OEM Honda blank, right?

, I have just gone into the shop with my key  and said can you cut me a spare  like that, but if you have lost yours and no spare then there could be a problem but otherwise they should be able to cut one it might not be a Honda shaped key but so what if it starts your bike happy days Smile

Ummm - number?

I have several keys by now, and none of them have any numbers on them? Example:


You'll have to trust me when I say there's no number on the other side.

I'm curious. Are all my keys aftermarket?

Exactly what I was thinking.
I don't have a number on mine either.
I only have the one and was wondering how to get another one made.

You may find the key number on the ignition barrel or the back of the seat lock or under the fuel tank cap.

Happy days.
