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
I had the same problem with my ZX10R losing the master key to which all other keys need to be coded from and I am assuming that Yamaha might use a very similar system in which the key gives off a signal that is picked up from your bikes electrical system even before the key is placed into the key barrel if your key is not chipped and is a regular type key then one can be cut fairly simple or replace the key barrel with a new one and set of keys . But if you have lost the master key that codes all other keys for your bike then it can become a very expensive job running into the thousands of dollars easy because replacement of the security system that is integrated into the whole bikes computer and electrical system is a very complex and expensive system to replace . There are key coders that you might be able to use costing a few hundred dollars instead of thousands of dollars and without the need to replace your bikes whole security system as well as people that offer the service to recode your keys depending on the difficulties of your system . You will need to start looking on youtube for methods or devices or people that offer that type of service and start by searching for lost key transponders or key codes and then finding out if your system is compatible and can be given a new code and set of keys hopefully this will be the case because there isn't much of away around other than the very expensive total system replacement of your bikes security system . I have lost my master key and can not get any replacements cut and I have lost nearly all of the copied spare keys that were originally coded from the master key so I have attached a key permanently hidden on my bike that the transponder can pick up as a signal and I use a normal key to fit in and turn the key barrel as normal without the fear of losing the coded key , as well adding a few anti theft devices of my own like a hidden cut off switch , disc brake lock with alarm etc so I can make key copies at any key cutting place for a few dollars .
hi, you are more likely to find the key code on 1 of the other locks on the bike like the seat lock, if you can remove the seat, and the lock, in the old days manufactors would put the code on the lock normaly wher you cant see it a good locksmith will make you a key if you take him the lock, paul
Stop right there.If you brought the bike from a dealer then tell them you lost the key .if it was a private sale then there nothing you can do. But if I was you .I would try finding a frendly mechanic and tell him you lost the key and he may be able to find an old key that will fit . As for drilling out the key lock ,Remember that if your bike gets stolen the insurance company will not pay you ouy .if you have to bypass the switch lock remove the whole lock and put a on off switch in the wires coming out the rear of the switch .
You'll still need to unlock the steering wheel and shift lever. This can only be done with the key or by breaking the collar for the keyswitch. Either it is very difficult, and best left to the hands of a proffesional.
Take the ignition lock out and have a locksmith make a new key for it. If the ignition key also unlocks another part of the bike (e.g. a helmet lock or security lock) it's often easier to remove one of those. I'm assuming you don't have this problem as a consequence of stealing the bike ;-)?
