I saw an earlier thread by someone cutting down the Beo keys so they can fit in your pocket without stabbing you.
I went to my local locksmith who cut me two keys from a blank he had in stock. They work perfectly. The blank was an ilco VL6-P. It cost me $6 to have to two keys cut!

hi there try ringing a locksmith and see if he can do it on the bike for you or more than likely you will need to take it to a locksmith or try taking it to the dealer that sell them and get him to cut a key that the lock has a number on the back of it cheers pete
If you have lost the keys you only have two options. The ignition switch is the most detailed switch and will need to be replaced or have another key cut to work. I have removed the switch and taken to a locksmith with good results. The other option is to have locksmith come to the bike. the results would depend on your locksmith. When the bike was purchased new it had a tag with the keys that had a numerical code. If you have that code the dealer should be able to cut a key for it.
Remember that the key opens the ignition, fuel tank and the seat. If you can not get another key made, you will have to replace all three locks.
Usually not the axle. The threads in the aluminum axle nut may be worn and no longer fit tight enough on the axle to keep from backing off.You can tell this if the nut feels really sloppy after screwing it on 2 or 3 threads.
Honda doesn't or claims it doesn't keep record of their transponder passwords, which is prolly true. Dealership will tell you Barrel, and ecu need be changed with new set of keys and tank/passenger seat locks which will run you $1400+. In principal, you can purchase a new ecu with matched blank keys and have them cut to your current key code, which should run you $800ish but i don't know if they will do it.. other cheaper options include: - $250-ish: send ecu to specialized shops that hack it (physically) and reprogram it and then send it back with two matched blank keys (plus $30-ish if you want them cut, but you need to send them the barrel also) - $400-ish: buy used and hacked ecu with matched blank keys..then cut them yourself to your key code. - $100-ish: buy used U.S. spec ECU eliminating HISS altogether, then you can cut keys that will work without programming the transponders, but you will need to alter your wiring harness or buy U.S. loom.( If you have a japan bike you have another wiring problem with the exhaust servo)
P.S. people telling you just to cut keys don't have /have dealt with HISS before. Good Luck
im not sure about that as i think you need a key actualy in it to remove it, was is same key as your ignition? if you have old ignition take that to locksmith and see if he can cut you a key to fit. the locksmith would probably drill it out for you . to be honest those type of steering locks are not much good anyway, i had my kdx 250 stolen and they just snapped the steering lock with a sharp twist of the bars.. better off with a DISC lock.
I am thinking about my bike.
Regarding replacement tires my 08 beo 200 has 100/80 (front) and 120/80 (rear). It is still early on in the tire's life cycle (only have 1300 miles) on it. They are the stock Cheng Shin tires. Dont really have anything to compare them against and have ridden in mostly dry conditions and just yesterday during and after a light misting but have no complaints in performance at all.
Just looking down the road for when I do have to to replace the tires. I was considering getting tires with a bit more contact patch possibly 110/70 (front) and 130/70 (rear). This would give me more width and with a lower profile would possibly put me at the same diameter as the 80's. The ride will probably be more firm though.
I have played around with cars and tires in the past, but two wheel dynamics are different so I am looking for the groups advice or input on the matter,I have been considering options as well for sometime next year. The host site lists a 110/80/16 in the Michelin Gold. Would the rim size on the Beo 200 support a larger size? They also list a Pirelli in 130/80/16 as a replacement for the Beo 200. Can one assume that the rear rim will indeed support a larger tire?
I had to lay my scoot on its side once this summer and noticed how fast the front tire broke loose on pavement at slow speed. I was also wondering if a larger front tire would put a bit more rubber on the road, to any advantage.
