Ignition switch removal, I got a bike with no key, dealer says to remove the switch and bring it in for key replacement.

Take one of the head light mounting bolts out and swing the headlight bucket out of the way. With a 10 mm socket on an extension reach up under neath the switch and unbolt it. Unplug the wire harness from the switch and take it off. The key code id stamped on every lock on the bike, gas cap, helmet lock, seat latch, and ignition switch. It is six digit number sometimes with letters. It is found on all the locks, example: 345A56 "A56" is the key code or 654321 "321" is the key code. All you need is the key code to have the key cut at a dealer or a locksmith.

I tried to open the gas tank (lock) but i stick my key in (also tried the spare) but the lock would not turn. I looked up some toubleshooting and used wd40 in the lock and along the rubber seal outside but...

There is either a small piece of something keeping you from fully inserting the key , the lock is broken, or the lock has been replaced and the replacement uses a different key. On my 2009 Ex250 the key turns 1/4 turn clockwise and is very easy to turn. Worst case scenario, you may have to drill the tumblers out of the lock. Even if you undue all the top screws but the cap will not come off. There is one security screw under neath to keep the fuel thieves from just taking the top off. If you damage the cap beyond use you can always replace it with a Slingshotracing gas cap. You could take the tank to a locksmith to see if they can pick it. Hope this helps.

Finding a replacement gas cap

You can purchase a new OEM gas cap at Babbit's. It is Yamaha part number 47G-24650-00-00. The cost is $132.75 and the key comes with it. :)

Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock.

Google " motorcycle salvage yamaha " You can probably get a different gas tank with cap and key. I don't know if a salvage yard would sell only the cap w/ key.

A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks! < < And it doesn’t cost anything!

Gas cap v star 650

best bet would be to get a new one also remembering how much the dealers charge for there products i would go aftermarket threw partsunlimited, cruiser, or Tucker rocky but the dealer still has to order it for you, all have great quality products at cheaper prices than O.E.M replacements unless your still under warranty.

Lost 1999 cbr key

were both keys the same if not it sounds like its had a replacement ignition barrel. it may have a key number stamped in the back of the barrel casing. if it has you can order a replacement key from any good locksmith/dealer, alternatively you can order a replacement barrel from m&p or any motorcycle parts stockists.
