OK,

Late last month, I moved from one town to another.

It was an insane move, done primarily over a single weekend.



It would appear in the course of my move, my better half was kind enough to throw away my 954 keys which I had put in a jar for safekeeping.


I have held off as long as possible in ordering the dealer over to my house to pick the bike, tow it to their location, yank the steering lock and read the numbers to cut a new key in the hopes I find mine.

I have given up, I need to fuggin ride :(

Here's my question:

Both Honda Coporate and my owners manual say to use the number plate given to me by the dealer.

When I bought the bike I was give two single keys, and no number plate.

Do y'all think I have a leg to stand on in bitching to the dealer about the costs in them yanking the steering lock, when they didnt give me a number plate as they are supposed to.


The costs will be about 75-100 bones, a charge which I would like to dispute in light of then not giving me my key number. There is no trace of the number anywhere on the paperwork either.




THe days are getting cold, I have been without wheels for 2 weeks, Im dying.


Thoughts?

I think I read a thread about somebody having this issue, and that you could pull the gas cap on a Honda and the key number was under it. I have been wrong before, but it seems this is something you could do on your own without towing and stuff.

Fuggin bastards say they gave me the number plate.


:mad:

Obviously, they didnt or I wouldn't be screwed.

Be advised when buying a bike here. Check everything 2x.



Looks like I need to have it ripped out at my expense.

I got the number plate when I purchased my bike, I even asked about it and they explained it to me.

Did you call Honda and ask them if there was any other way you could find that number?

I should've pushed it harder..

About two years ago, some tool tried to steal my bike by inserting a screw driver into the ignition hole and pounding with a hammer. The keyhole was THRASHED. I got the bike to the dealer and they put in a new ignition; however, I have two seperate keys now -- one for iginition and one for the gas/trunk. If I had produced that number plate, I probably could have ordered a "matched" ignition. Doh!

Glad to hear you are back on the road!

your key code should be in Honda's network(Worldwide dealer computer system) By using your vin#they should be able to recall the key code, which would allow them to cut a key. If you need help p.m. me I can make some calls to help you out. Oh yeah I work for a division of Honda Motor Company.
