How Do We Make Replacement Motorcycle Keys?
It depends on the year make and model of your motorcycle how we will make the key. On some bikes we will pick the gas cap lock and remove it from the motorcycle. Then we will disassemble the lock and determine the sizes of the wafers inside and cut a key to match them. Once we have a key that works in that lock, we will reassemble the lock and reinstall the gas cap back on the bike. If necessary we will progress the remaining wafers located in another lock such as the ignition lock, helmet lock, seat lock or fork lock.
Some bikes we will make a key from scratch by impression. Keys by Impression are made using a blank key, a pair of vice grip pliers and a pippin file. We apply small amounts of pressure against the wafers in the lock, which make small impressions on the blank key while inserted in a lock. We file the key until each wafer aligns properly and the key begins to operate the lock.
Other bikes we will be able to obtain a key code off of one of the locks. We can then look up that code to determine the key bitting and cut a replacement key.
Many Harley Davidson Motorcycles use the round keys (like pictured above). For these bikes we have a special pick that we use to pick one of your locks. We can then decode our pick directly and cut a new key from the information obtained during the decoding process.
